Man, I can't believe Saturday is already the 1st of June. The kids are [almost] out of school, and summer is officially upon us. You know what that means! SYNC recently announced the list of audiobook pairings up for grabs this summer, and today is the kick-off of the program for 2013. Here's what you can grab through Wednesday of next week...for free!
This week's YA title is Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, performed by Rebecca Gibel for AudioGo.
This week's classic title is The Tempest by William Shakespeare, performed by a Full Cast for AudioGo.
I enjoyed Of Poseidon when I read it last year. In fact, I just received the audio for the sequel, Of Triton, just last week, and I can't wait to dive into it. (Pun totally intended....lol.) As for The Tempest, I love Shakespeare, but for whatever reason, I've never gotten around to picking this one up. Now's as good a time as any. :)
Will you be picking up either of these titles? Remember, they're only available through Wednesday, and new titles will be put up on Thursday for download. Other things to note:

I hope you take advantage of this program. I've been doing it for the last couple of years, and I've had the opportunity to listen to a ton of great audio for free. If you've never tried audiobooks before, it's a great opportunity to do so without the obligation of buying one that you might not enjoy. And if you love audiobooks, well, it's a great time to stock up on some titles you may have missed. Win/win. =)
