Miscellany on stuffed animals and audiobooks
I'm over at the ALSC Blog today - complaining about stuffed animals.
Feel free to join me if you're so inclined.
In other news, I hope you've been downloading your free books from SYNC. Two free books are available each week beginning on Thursday. The books for that week are available for one week only. Books are yours - forever - no strings attached.
"SYNC is a free summer audiobook program for teens. Starting May 5th 2016, SYNC will give away two complete audiobook downloads a week - pairs of high interest titles, based on weekly themes. Sign up for email or text alerts and be first to know when new titles are available to download at www.audiobooksync.com."
Today is the last day to get Zac & Mia by A.J. Betts, and I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson. Tomorrow, it's How it Went Down by Kekla Magoon (with a full cast narration!) and The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man by James Weldon Johnson.
Below are the titles for the next few weeks (there are more to come after these!):
