Free YA Audiobooks

Have you tried audiobooks yet? With school and local libraries closed for a while, it might be a good time to trial one or two… for free. Here is one option…

SYNC is a free summer audiobook program for teens 13+. Returning April 30th and continuing 13 weeks until July 29, it provides access to a selection of paired YA titles to give you a taster.

Simply register your interest at the SYNC site, set up email alerts and then you can download and listen to any of the titles you choose. And once downloaded, they are yours to keep! (You will need to download the Sora reading app here to whichever device you plan to use for listening.)

You can already browse through the expected titles and listen to a small excerpt to see which ones appeal (clicking through the blue numbered dots on this page ). And you will see there is a range of quite diverse titles, with both new and old authors in the mix (even Shakespeare is there).

Why not give it a whirl? What have you got to lose?

# Note, these are mainly American titles.
