SYNC recently announced the list of audiobook pairings up for grabs this summer, and the program officially kick-offed off last week with Of Poseidon and The Tempest. Here's what you can grab through Wednesday of next week...for free!
This week's YA title is The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Maryrose Wood, performed by Katherine Kellgren for HarperAudio.
This week's classic title is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë, performed by Wanda McCaddon for Tantor Audio.
This is the first I've heard of Incorrigible, but it sounds like a great MG read. I'll definitely be picking it up. As for Jane Eyre, well, it's a classic for a reason. It's been awhile, though, and Katherine Kellgren is one of my favorite audio narrators, so I'm excited to give the book another read/listen.
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. =)
