Young Adult audiobook giveaway

For a limited time this summer, Sync is giving away free audiobooks, mostly in young adult fiction. The books are free, but there are some hoops to jump through. First, you have to sign up for Audiobook Community. Then you have to join the Sync group in Audiobook Community and download them from there. To download the files, you'll have to install Overdrive Media Console (presumably a DRM program). Some of these books may not be available outside the US and I have no idea what players the Overdrive DRM is compatable with, so listener beware.

After the break, I've listed the available books.

Available July 1 - July 7
The Angel Experiment by James Patterson
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

Available July 8 - July 14
Over the End Line by Alfred C. Martino
The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay

Overdrive is fully compatible with Windows Media Player, and there is now a version for Mac. This is the content and drm management system used by libraries all over the US and Canada now, and yes it works outside the US. (I live in brazil most of the year, and download audiobooks, videos, etc, from my public library in florida to listen to and watch on my mp3 and computer. Fabulous system.
