Sync Audiobooks 2013: Week 2

So for those of you who've been around for awhile and have been hanging in there during my absence, you may remember I talked about something called Sync Audiobooks last summer.  This year I'm happy to announce they're starting earlier and going longer, which means even more books this summer. 

For every week during the summer months SYNC offers up 2 free audiobooks a week: one contemporary YA offering, and a classic book that goes along with the theme.  If you listen to audiobooks already, you know they can be expensive.  So 2 free audiobooks is a pretty amazing deal!  And if you don't do audiobooks already, well, it's free, so this is your chance to try them.  All you need to do is provide your name and email address when you download the book, and you'll need to download Overdrive Media Console to download the MP3 books with (which is also free to download).  It's pretty neat, so check it out. 

At the very least, you might as well download the classic title.  It's free (as I mentioned already) and you never know when you might have to read one of those books for school.  And sometimes listening to those books makes them much easier to understand than reading them!

This weeks offering features Victorian age governesses in strange circumstances.  It's The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood paired with the Charlotte Bronte classic Jane Eyre.  By the way, if you want to see the best movie version of Jane Eyre (in my opinion) you definitely need to check out the BBC's Masterpiece Theater miniseries version.

Head over the Sync's blog to download both books.  But you'll need to hurry, because June 12 is the last day!  Keep an eye here for more Sync news the rest of the summer.   I'm going to try and remember to update every week.  Try being the key word in that sentence of course.
