SYNC recently announced the list of audiobook pairings up for grabs this summer, and the program has officially kicked off. Last week's offerings were The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place and Jane Eyre. And here's what you can grab through Wednesday of next week...for free!
This week's YA title is The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, performed by Will Patton for Scholastic Audiobooks.
This week's classic title is Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya, performed by Robert Ramirez for Recorded Books.
LOVED Will Patton's rendering of The Raven Boys when I listened to it last year, and I'll definitely be picking up the audio for The Dream Thieves when it releases later this year. There's just something about listening to a Maggie Stiefvater book. Some books are just that much better when they're brought to life on audio. As for Bless Me, Ultima, I've never read it, but now seems like as good a time as any to experience what I've been missing.
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 chance 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. =)
And to celebrate the fact that June is Audiobook Month, we're giving away three different books on CD! Click the image below to check out the giveaway!
