Thanks to my friend and fellow library professional, Christy Hartigan, I happened upon this great site supporting young adult (YA) literature.  Sync seeks to encourage young adults (ages 13+) to listen to audiobook versions of both contemporary and classic titles in YA lit.

According to the Sync homepage:

What is SYNC?

• SYNC is an online community that seeks to build the audience for audiobooks among readers 13 and up.

• Each week, SYNC will give away 2 FREE downloads–a popular Young Adult title paired with a Classic title that appears on Summer Reading lists–starting July 1 through September 1, 2010.

• SYNC is hosted by Audiobook Community, a new social networking site for the discovery of audiobooks.

• Listeners can choose to join a conversation about these titles with authors, narrators, publishers, librarians, and other listeners. (Listeners are not required to join Audiobook Community to follow the conversation on SYNC nor to download FREE titles from SYNC.)

In addition to the free weekly downloads, they offer great freebie downloads for librarians & educators: bookmarks, posters, newsletters, and more.  So download this week’s free audiobook and enjoy the YA audiobook community.  Tell me what you think of this recommendation in the comments section – anyone try out Sync?

    Hope to see you there 🙂
