Free Audio Book!

Until June 29th Maggie Stiefvater's best-selling novel, Shiver, is available for free here.

It costs no money to download the entire book. You will need to download a free program called Overdrive Media Console in order to download the book on to it. The media console is windows and mac compatible.

Audiobooksync is providing 2 free audio books each week for people to download each week of summer. This week it's Shiver and Romeo and Juliet.

June 30th-July 6th
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow and The Trial by Franz Kafka

July 7th- July 13th
Where the Streets had a Name by Randa Abdel-Fattah and A Passage to India by E.M. Forster

July 14th- July 20th
The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney and Beowulf by Francis B. Gummere

July 21st- July 27th
Chanda's Secrets by Allan Stratton and Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy

July 28th- August 3rd
Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari and Rescue: Stories of Survival From Land and Sea by Dorcas S. Miller

August 4th- August 10th
Immortal by Gillian Shields and Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

August 11th- August 17th
Storm Runners by Roland Smith and The Cay by Theodore Taylor (an audio clip)

It seems they're combining contemporary books with the classics in order to give them both more notoriety than they would have had separately. However, you don't have to download the classic to get the contemp. and vice versa.

Please, download and listen. (I know the Shiver audio is particularly amazing.)

Happy Reading,
