Free books!

First up, Tor has a free YA SF&F anthology called Fierce Reads that you can get more info on over here. (via bookshelves of doom)

Sync YA is all about YA audiobooks and to celebrate their launch they are giving away TWO free audiobooks every week for ten weeks! One of the books in each pair will be YA and the other will be a related classic. For instance, this week’s offerings are The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch and The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck. The first is a dystopia/apocalypse story where 2/3 of the world’s population has died from a lethal flu and the second, which I probably don’t even need to tell you about, is basically the seminal piece of literature of the Great Depression. Here is the link straight to the download page and here is the link for the schedule. (Mia – go look at week 6! I was giggling when I saw it.) (via The Shady Glade)

One thought on “Free books!

  1. Haha, I saw that! What a coinkidink. The story’s decently fast-paced and I think it would make for a pretty good audiobook, although I wonder if the heroine’s frequent lamenting of her circumstances (which, to be fair, do suck) would come across as more annoying…I tend to be far less able to tolerate annoying character traits in audiobooks, probably partially because they get soooo drawwwwn ouuuuuut.

    BTW, I totally snapped up the Fierce Reads anthology–hopefully I’ll get around to reading it soon so I can review it!
