SYNC is a summer program geared towards teens, which offers two free e-audiobooks each week. They are available starting April 30th, through July 29th, 2020. Adults are also welcome to jump in as the audiobooks are great choices for ages 13 and up.
How does it work?
First visit the SYNC page at http://www.audiobooksync.com and register for SYNC 2020. Don't forget to signup to receive updates and alerts via e-mail and text. You can also stay updated by checking this webpage.
Next set up Sora. SYNC uses Sora, the student reading app from OverDrive. You don't need to be affiliated with a school to use Sora with the SYNC program. Visit https://meet.soraapp.com/ for more information about the Sora app and instructions for downloading it to a device. Note: Only the Sora app will work for the SYNC program. Libby and OverDrive app cannot be used.
Open the Sora app and tap I have a setup code button at the bottom of the screen. The setup code is: audiobooksync. Tap the explorebutton at the bottom of the apps screen to see the selections each week. New titles are available at midnight every Thursday and are available to download for the next 7 days.
Each week, you can download a free e-audiobook and a free classic e-audiobook, paired by a common theme or treatment. A list of the titles and the week when they can be downloaded is available as a SYNC PDF.
Week 12: July 16th - 22nd, SYNC brings you Fake by Eric Simonson and New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson.
Be sure to check this page each week for new samples. Samples of the books are also available through SoundCloud.
It’s time to kick back and plug in—listening is reading and SYNC makes it the best way to start your summer.
