FREE audiobooks: Sense & Sensibility and Irises #JIAM2012

Download the new SYNC pair for FREE here! What a great way to celebrate June is Audiobook Month!

Sisters must find their own way to freedom, sacrifice, and yes, even romance after their fathers’ death.  Who will you root for?  Jane Austen’s Dashwood sisters or Francisco X. Stork‘s Kate and Mary? And which young suitor?

This Week’s Audiobooks:
Available to download free June 21 – June 27

Irises Published by Listening Library

Two sisters, three young men, one agonizing choice, and discovering what’s truly worth living for.


Sense and Sensibility Published by Tantor Media

The Dashwood sisters are reduced to meager means when their father passes away–a story of love and heartache.

Available for a Limited Time:
Remember–Grab these titles before they are replaced by a new pairing on 6/21/12!  While the title availability is time-limited, your listening time is not.  Once you have the resulting MP3, the audiobook is yours to keep forever & listen to at your leisure.
