It’s the most wonderful time of the year!! Well, for audiobook lovers anyway. This Thursday kicks off the start of the season where Sync provides free downloads of young adult and classic novels to make ears (and hearts) happy!
Skeptical readers are thinking: that’s nice, but I bet the titles suck. Let me stop you right there and assure you they do not! There are so many good titles this year, I’m up to my ankles in drool. Each week pairs a recent YA book with a classic that’s thematically related. Where else are you going to find access to Laini Taylor paired with Charles Dickons? Here’s the schedule of titles available, taken from the Sync website:
