(My middle name is disappear. I’m glad to be back, though.)
Welcome to another bookworm tip brought to you by this broke uni student. Obviously, it had to be about a free something.
Well, AudiobookSync‘s summer program is coming back on April 29, and I’m excited to listen to the audiobooks they’ll share.
If free audiobooks aimed at teens are something you might be interested in, keep reading! I’ve listed all the important details (and would love to answer any questions).
Ready to be surprised?
1- I am not sponsored nor supported in any way by the mentioned website. I just want to share some happiness with my fellow book lovers.
2- I do talk a lot about getting free stuff, which is why it might seem like I don’t want to financially support authors. No.
I’m a full-time uni student in London and I’m paying my whole international tuition fee by myself (it’s sky-high, and I work the beautiful amount of three jobs to cover it all). This means that I have literally £0 budget for buying books.
I won’t list all the reasons why reading is beneficial (even necessary) to an individual’s development. The point is, I don’t want to drop it. This means that the only way I can read some books is by getting them for free (legally).
Even if I can’t offer monetary support, I still offer honest reviews and whatever promotion I can do on my platforms. These might convince someone else with the actual means to buy books to purchase a copy.
I can’t do more at the moment, but I do what I can.
1- What Is AudiobookSync?
Free audiobooks for teens all summer!AudiobookSync – Twitter
When I used AudiobookSync for the first time, it had its own website. Now it’s a page on AudioFile Magazine.
The point of the program is to offer two weekly audiobooks to teens throughout summer. It runs for XX weeks, so by the end of the run, loyal users should have XX audiobooks in their library.
2- How Does It Work?
Here’s how you can get the free audiobooks:
♡ Register to SYNC with your email (for free).
♡Download the Sora App (free as well). You can get the app on Android and IOS, and I have used it online on both PC and Mac.
♡Click on “I have a setup code –>” and use SYNC‘s setup code (audiobooksync). Click “Get started!”
♡ Sign in with the same email you used to register for SYNC. You’re in!
From here on, I’m relying on memory (I did this last year and obviously never since then).
I believe you should click on the menu setting and select the AudiobookSync library. The library should have put in evidence the two weekly audiobooks. If you click on the audiobook you want to get, there should be a “Borrow” button on the page. Click it, and the audiobook will be added to your library!
3- What Kind of Books does AudiobookSync Feature?
These are some of the audiobooks you will be able to get this year.
4- Other Questions You Might Have
How long do I have to download the audiobooks? Each pair of audiobooks will be available for a week (from 12am on a Thursday to 11.59pm on the following Wednesday). After this, you won’t be able to get these specific audiobooks from SYNC.
Can I download the audiobooks in MP3 format? For copyright reasons, you can’t listen to the audiobooks in any other way that isn’t through the Sora App. But this mean you can bring them everywhere with you!
If it says “borrow”, how long do I have to listen to the audiobook? 35,990 days (almost 100 years)!
5- Does AudiobookSync Have Social Media?
Here are three things I want to say about AudiobookSync:
- It got me into listening to audiobooks.
- Many of the audiobooks it offers are popular titles. The others have educational purposes.
- The audio quality is obviously great, as you get the audiobooks you would get if you bought them.
Did you know about AudiobookSync? Are you going to try it?
Do you have more questions about the website itself? I’d love to help you find out the answers!
