This is a fantastic deal! 24 audio books for summer listening --free! Starting next Thursday!
From May 30th until August 21st, SYNC pairs two audio books each week, one YA and one 'classic' or non-YA title. For example, first up is Of Poseidon by Ann Banks and Shakespeare's The Tempest. The following week is The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, Book 1: The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood paired with Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.
There is a real mix in the selections and it's interesting to see what titles have been paired with each other. There are a few titles I've not heard of but I think sound intriguing such as Enchanted by Alethea Kontis
Check here for the full schedule.

Selecting early-readers, chapter books
or short novels for grades 2/3 to 5 can be tricky. Varying reading abilities makes it
challenging to find interesting stories that aren't too difficult or too easy
to read. Illustrations are good, but this
group is moving out of picture books so you don’t want too many. Lots of white space on each page and large
text are also helpful for the novice reader. I'm big on humour, too.
