Start “Reading with your Ears” For FREE!

     Hey guys,

Let the free audiobook “reading” begin!  The info. below is directly from the SYNC website.  Don’t be discouraged if the first book download is a little difficult; it gets easier each time you do it.  BTW, I read The Eleventh Plague and loved it.   And I listened to The Grapes of Wrath and the cast was great!

Download the SYNC pair here!

This week we have a Young Adult dystopian title by the riveting writer, Jeff Hirsch paired with the classic, The Grapes of Wrath.  What theme unites this pairing?   Well, the R.E.M. lyric, “It’s the end of the world as we know it…” comes to mind.  Let us know what YOU think connects the two.

Drought and economic depression are driving thousands from Oklahoma.

“…bringing heart, soul, and tears to every line. A fine introduction to Steinbeck’s world.” –AudioFile Magazine
