Audiobook Community goes live!
Posted by: Mary Burkey


A social network for audiobook aficionados? Free downloads of YA titles paired with classic listening? A chance to mingle with narrators who voice your favorite titles? Audiobook Community is all this and more! Developed & maintained by the AudioFile Magazine staff, Audiobook Community is an open, uncensored, unbranded forum for all audiobook listeners to discover audiobooks and connect with other fans as well as publishers, authors, and narrators.

I’m super excited about Sync, Audiobook Community’s initiative to promote YA Literature. The top audiobook publishers are providing two FREE downloads a week this summer, July 1 – September 1, 2010! Teens & other YA lit lovers can download, listen, & join the online conversation about the audiobooks. Public & school libraries can jump aboard the initiative by using the professionally-designed promotional materials that you’ll be able to print from the Sync Tool Kit – there’s even space for your library to personalize the printables to include your logo or promote your collection with listen-alike lists. I’ll post more about Sync in the coming days as the Tool Kit and title list go live. But for now head over to, join in the fun, and invite your friends!
