SYNC YA Listening Summer 2013 Launches Today!

May 30-August 15, 2013

YOU GUYS this truly is really cool. Each week this summer, starting today, you can download two free audiobooks to listen to on your computer or mobile device. I'll keep you posted throughout the summer on the weekly titles. There will always be one contemporary YA title and one related YA "classic".

Bonus factors:

  1. If you already use OWWL2Go to download library eBooks, you should already have the OverDrive app needed to download these audiobooks;
  2. Unlike library eBooks, these title don't need to be "returned". That's right: you can keep them. What?
Download the 1st free YA Novel & Summer Reading Classic pair from SYNC here. Or, you could just keep reading for a sneak preview of this week's titles, followed by some easy to follow instructions. Your choice.

This Week's Audiobooks: 
Available to download free May 30 – June 5, 2013

Of Poseidon By Anna Banks

Galen, prince of the Syrena, is sent to land to find a girl he's heard can communicate with fish and after several encounters with her Galen becomes convinced Emma holds the key to his kingdom.

A storm rages. Prospero and his daughter watch from their desert island as a ship carrying the royal family is wrecked. Miraculously, all on board survive. Plotting, mistaken identities, and bewitching love follow as the travelers explore the strange place of spirits and monsters.

Thank you to AudioGO for generously providing this week's titles.
