May 18, 2017 Bonnie Audiobooks, Sync 4 Comments

This week’s free set of titles is ready to download! Make sure you get these downloaded by May 24th because a new set of books will be available to download on May 25th. In case you’re new to the Audiobook Sync program, here are the details:

Any individual may participate by downloading the OverDrive App to their device of choice and returning to the SYNC website each Thursday after 7am Eastern Time to download the new audiobook pair for the week. Each title is available for one week only, but once downloaded they can be kept forever, so the opportunity to listen can extend well beyond the term of the summer program.

This year’s program kicks off on April 27th and there will be a total of 32 titles available to download each week. Be sure to sign up for email and/or text alerts at Audiobook Sync to remind you when new titles are available. The audiobooks can be downloaded onto your computer and easily transferred to your smartphone for easy listening — and remember that these audiobooks are yours to keep!

Now without further ado, your free audiobook titles this week….

The Gathering (Shadow House #1) by Dan Poblocki | Read by Dan Bittner | Published by Scholastic Audiobooks | Download available here!

Multiplatform takes on horror with a trilogy that brings Miss Peregrine to middle grade with an online Skeleton Creek twist! Come Play With Us…

Buildings have memories. Places bear scars. We’ve all had those moments–a chill in the air, a sense that something terrible once happened where we stand. But some houses are more than scary. They’re hungry.

Larkspur House has lured five kids inside, and they’re trapped. The five will have to look carefully–there are clues to the house’s secrets scattered all over the grounds, and if they can figure out the past, it might show them a way out of their terrifying present. Will they stay strong enough to discover the house’s weakness and escape? Or will the horrors of Larkspur House scare the five right out of their minds?

In Our Backyard: Human Trafficking in America and What We Can Do to Stop It by Nita Belles | Read by Nicol Zanzarella | Published by Oasis Audio | Download available here!

Modern slavery is happening all around you . . . and you can be part of the solution.

Human trafficking is not just something that happens in other countries. Nor is it something that just happens to “other people,” such as runaways or the disenfranchised. Even kids in your own neighborhood can fall victim. But they don’t have to.

Through true stories and expertise from her many years of boots-on-the-ground experience, anti-trafficking expert Nita Belles teaches you everything you need to know about human trafficking in the United States, helping you identify risk factors, take practical steps to keep your loved ones and neighbors safe from predators, and recognize trafficking around you, so that you can help fight it.

Happy listening!

    Lover of tea. Crazed Bibliophile. Daydreamer.
    I have a ridiculous love for the written word. I read anything and everything: Adult fiction, YA, Middle Grade, even the occasional Non-Fiction.

    When I'm not reading I'm caring for my step-children, drinking obscene amounts of tea and contemplating what life will be like in the impending apocalypse.

    This is such a great program! I loved Dan Bittner’s performance in Where She Went so I just might have to download this one. The second book deals with some very scary real-life happenings. I’m sure it would be enlightening.
