How to find audiobooks for $30 or less
Audiobooks are an important way to draw in your reluctant readers and get them excited about reading. Often, hearing words spoken aloud can help unlock new levels of comprehension that these students aren’t always able to achieve reading conventional texts.
Because they’re so integral to inspiring enthusiasm among kids of all ages and abilities, audiobooks should factor in as a key component of your school’s literacy strategy. Audiobooks aren’t just great as a recreational reading option – they’re also an efficient use of curriculum budget, and they can be an important component of Individualized Education Programs for students who need additional learning support.
Finding high-interest audiobooks that can meet your needs for the right price might seem challenging – but it’s actually the easiest it will be all year because of OverDrive’s End of Year sale! During the sale, which runs from now until Dec. 31, you can find all kinds of discounted audio new releases and bestsellers for your K-12 students, including thousands of options priced under $30.

Audiobooks under $30
by: Jeff Kinney, Ramón De Ocampo
Up until now, middle school hasn’t exactly been a joyride for Greg Heffley. So when the town threatens to close the crumbling building, he’s not too broken up about it. But when Greg realizes this means he’s going to be sent to a different school than his best friend, Rowley Jefferson, he changes his tune. Can Greg and his classmates save their school before it’s shuttered for good? Or is this the start of a whole new chapter for Greg?
(Fun fact: You can actually get audiobooks for the entire Diary of a Wimpy Kid series on sale right now, including this latest release.)
