#JIAM Freebie Friday


Odyssey Award-winning audiobook Rotters and Frankenstein for free – a great way to celebrate June is Audiobook Month and to kick off the American Library Association’s annual conference. Thanks to Listening Library and SYNC for providing the horrifically good free download deal. But be sure to grab these fast – it’s only good for one week! Here’s the link http://www.audiobooksync.com/sync-young-adult-titles/rotters/

And if you’re attending ALA in Chicago, check out the audio events – they’re all FREE, including the Odyssey Award Celebration honoring the 2013 winner and honor titles. Get the scoop on all the activities and locations here: http://audiobooker.booklistonline.com/2013/06/24/jiam-audiobooks-at-ala/

Plus, visit the vendors to see what’s new with audiobook providers. But if you won’t be in Chicago, never fear. I’ll be posting interviews with the Odyssey narrators here on Audiobooker, and have this recap of new audiobook download features:http://audiobooker.booklistonline.com/2013/06/26/jiam-whats-new-from-digital-audiobook-providers/

Now off to battle the Blackhawks parade crowd on my way to the conference. Hope to see you there!
