Free YA Audiobooks for the Summer!

Hey, everyone. AudioFile Magazine is hosting a giveaway of 2 FREE YA audiobooks each week between the weeks of June 14 - August 22, 2012.

This is a really great opportunity to download some free MP3 audiobooks if you're into listening to them. I did this last year and got a few really cool YA titles, including Shiver by Maggie Stievater. Of course, this year, the books are going to be different, but they are going to be giving away some great reads again. A few that stand out are:

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch

Cleopatra's Moon by Vicky Alvear Shecter 

Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy

They are also throwing in with each recent YA title, a classic title as well, including:

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

Antony and Cleopatra by William Shakespeare (read by a full cast)

The Call of the Wild by Jack London

Wow! That is a great line up. I can't wait to download these books. Each week, two new ones will be available to download for one week only until the giveaway ends. Be sure you download OverDrive Software in order to download the MP3 files. That is a requirement. Go here to see the schedule of downloads and don't forget to check back each week for new audiobooks.

Don't miss out on this opportunity, you guys! 


  1. I used this last year to get Shiver. Of course this year the books I want to read are ones I already own. :( Argh!

    1. @Jenny: Oh, that sucks. But, they are the audiobook versions, so that's different, right?

  2. Thanks for the heads up!
    I tried downloading this week's but couldn't ):
    it's a odm file and my computer doesn't recognize it ):

    1. @Melannie: You have to download Overdrive software in order to download the MP3 files. I'll have to mention that in my post.

  3. Wow, this is so cool! I have the Smoke and Bone audio already, and it is really awesome. Thanks for letting us know about this! I am a total audio book junkie. :)

    1. @Camille: Yeah, I thought you might like to know about this because you love audiobooks. I hope they have something you really want to download. :)

  4. I've never actually listened to an audiobook before. My attention span is way too short to listen and do something else at the same time. I think it all becomes background noise. Or I'll end up falling asleep. But anything that get's people into reading is great!

    1. @Lan: I get annoyed with audiobooks when I don't like the voice acting, but if I do like it, then it's great. I just sit and pay attention to it and nothing else, like I would if I were simply reading a normal book.
