A Summer of Free Audiobooks

A couple of different people just made me aware of the summer promotion happening at Sync. Basically throughout the summer (until August 22 anyway), they are giving away TWO FREE AUDIOBOOKS EVERY WEEK.

There's no catch and no strings attached. Each week there are two new audio books available for download (and the links for the previous week's books are taken down...so you have to stay on top of it). You have to use their own download program to pull down the books, but they have versions of the application for Windows and Mac and once downloaded you can do what you want with the MP3s (move to your iPod, burn to CD, etc).

They are focused on YA books but each week seems to include one contemporary YA book alongside a book from classic literature. So even if you're not a fan of the "modern day YA", you will likely enjoy some of the classics on the list...for example this week (ending today 6/27) they have Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austin and next week includes Tales from the Arabian Nights. Next week's contemporary book is The Amulet of Samarkand (which I read a couple of years ago and really enjoyed).

Anyway, if you're at all interested in audio books, this is a great way to increase your collection. Here's a link to the schedule. Have fun reading/listening. :-)
