The online community SYNC (a subset of “Audiobook Community,” a social network) has a program targeted at 13+ Young Adults this summer. SYNC is giving away 2 free audiobook downloads a week. They will pair a popular YA title with a literary classic from July 1 through September 1. Unfortunately, I missed the first 2 weeks; however, this week’s pairing is a great one: Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer (Read by Katherine Kellgren) and Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson (Read by Alfred Molina).

Free is just awesome. I’m still working my way through the free summer ebook giveaway by Barnes and Noble. I love their ebook Reader on my smartphone!
Here are a few other sites where you can get some free ebooks. I make no claim that the books are school-appropriate or child-safe. I found these through the Smashing Apps blog, which lists more than 15 total resources here.
