Free Audio Books All Summer-Updated for 2016

Audiobooks SYNC is giving away free audio books for teens all summer. There are two new titles each week, but they are only available for download that week. You can register to get text message reminders about the titles each week.

Once you download the book you can listen to it as long as you like. They don't expire. Tell your students.
  1. Get the Overdrive App http://omc.overdrive.com/ (It's free.)
  2. Go to the site. I like to go there on my phone for direct downloading. http://www.audiobooksync.com/
  3. Click on the title you want. (There are only two per week.)
  4. Register to download the titles for that week. You need to enter your name and email address. 
  5. http://openclipart.org/
  6. Click download. 
The overdrive app can also be used to borrow e-books and audiobooks from many libraries. You sign in with your library card number (and a pin from your library) to search for titles, borrow them or place holds. Library digital collections are great for getting a book fast if you aren't super picky about the title you want. Specific and popular books often have waiting lists. Like real library books though, these digital library titles will expire after a few weeks.
