Once again, audiobook publishers have teamed up to give us two FREE professionally produced titles through AudioSYNC every week for a summer of great listening, starting today!
Each theme-related pair of audiobooks will be available for one week (Thursday-Wednesday) so I will alert you about new titles for all 13 weeks.
You’ll need to download the free Sora reading app (instructions and sign-up link here) if you don’t already use it with your school or library.
It’s all free, and once you save either or both weekly selections to your Sora shelf, you can read them with your ears whenever you like – no expiration dates.
AudioSYNC summer begins now, with these two titles about the Freedom to Know:
