Why not listen to lit?
Curious City is proud to have partnered with AudioFile Magazine to create and manage SYNC, an audience building literacy project for Young Adult and Classic/Required Reading audiobooks.
We have not only built a list of 20 FREE audiobooks that will be available in the Summer of 2012, but have created a complete promotional tool kit to allow librarians, educators, literacy folks, and bloggers to spread the good news to teens and other listeners.
Teens and other readers of Young Adult Literature will have the opportunity to listen to bestselling titles and Required Reading Classics this summer. Each week from June 14 – August 22, 2012, SYNC will offer two free audiobook downloads.
The audiobook pairings will include a popular YA title and a classic that connects with the YA title’s theme and is likely to show up on a student’s summer reading lists. For example, Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone, the first book in a new series about a girl who opens a door to two otherworldly cities at war, will be paired with Charles Dicken’s A Tale of Two Cities.
To find out when you can download titles to listen to on the run this summer, visit www.AudiobookSync.com or text syncya to 25827.
