    Awesome! Is it possible to get last year’s lists? I love the pairings idea and would like to “catch up” on last years titles before the new round begins!

    Thanks SYNC for the marvelous opportunity to access audiobooks. I gave out the information about the program at the end of school to my middle school students. I wonder how many students will be taken advantage of this gift?

    I listened while traveling this summer. A great book really makes the time go by pleasantly.

    1. afadmin

      Thank you for sharing with your students! Travel well while listening!

  8. Laurie

    I am so excited for summer to begin! Last year I received so many fantastic audios from the SYNC program and can’t wait to share the news with fellow booklovers on my blog today.

    1. afadmin

      Welcome back, Laurie and Fetch Me a Fainting Couch!

  9. karenradz

    Thank you – this is wonderful!! I will be sharing this with all my students – 7-12.

    1. afadmin

      Thank you, Karen!! let us know if you need anything!

  10. Ann

    Once you have done the download is it on the device forever or does it expire like a library book?

    1. afadmin

      You have it forever, no expiration.

  11. Em

    Passing on to our YA coordinator

  12. Maggie Knapp

    Just checking before spreading word to students: Is any information collected (for ex: cell phone numbers when they text) for advertising use later? Hate to be a cynic, but just want to know what I am recommending.


    1. Michele Cobb

      No we do not share information – we only use text numbers to announce SYNC updates and new titles. Same for our email list. We do have opt in options for AudioFile newsletters but we are very careful about making sure it’s not kids mistakenly signing up.

  13. Brayden Leffler

    Does anyone know if they have the third hunger games book on here?? Thanks

    1. Michele Cobb

      We do not – click HERE for a complete Summer 2014 schedule.
