Free (Audio) Books!

How awesome is this? As they have for the past several years, Sync Audiobooks is offering up 20 free classic & YA titles for our listening pleasure this summer

While some of the pairings fall short of being "related" (the only real commonality between "The Woman in White" and "Anna Dressed in Blood" is that there's a central character of the female gender who wears a white dress) hey, they're free! Each pairing is only available for a week, so check out the calendar below, or go to their site to sign up for text or email alerts.
