Each week this summer, Sync, part of the Audiobook Community, will once again offer free digital audiobooks pairings. Each audiobook pair consists of a current YA title and a thematically connected classic or frequently studied title.
The program begins on June 23rd. And here’s the list:
July 28 – August 3
Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari
Rescue: Stories of Survival From Land and Sea by Dorcas S. Miller [Ed.]
Sync, encourages teachers and librarians to participate beyond simply pointing teens to the books:
We encourage educators, librarians, and others to create profiles for their institutions and reading initiatives.
Be part of discussions about titles, narration, and listen-alikes.
The details: Mac and PC downloads in MP3 format, are hosted by OverDrive and operate through its Media Console. Audiobooks are available for a download period of seven days. Interested teens can text syncya to 25827 to receive text alerts about all the featured titles. Check here for a full list of supported reading devices.
