AudioFile Sync Audiobooks for Teens


  • AudioFile Magazine selects the items. Publishers provide free access.
  • Multiple users can have the same title at the same time.
  • Check out 2 free audiobooks per week during the program (check out for 99 years).
  • The 2022 program runs April 28 through August 17.
  • Titles change on Thursdays (midnight Eastern time, so 11 PM Wednesday in Central time). Each audiobook can only be checked out during its featured week.
  • For a list of which audiobooks will be on which date (and for samples of the audio), go to www.audiofilemagazine.com/sync-season
  • This program uses the Sora app (or the soraapp.com website) to deliver the audiobooks.
  • First, go to www.audiofilemagazine.com/sync and register for SYNC. If you have participated before and are using the same email address, skip this step.
  • Go to soraapp.com or open the Sora app, and click, “I have a setup code” (near the bottom of the page) instead of picking a school. Enter audiobooksync as the setup code.
  • Enter the email address that you used when you registered on the www.audiofilemagazine.com/sync website, and click “sign in”.
  • If you have already set audiobooksync up as one of your libraries, click it on your list of libraries in order to select it.
  • Click “Explore” on the bottom of the screen to see this week’s available titles.
  • Click the title you want and click “borrow” to check it out for 99 years! Unless you return it early, you can access the audiobook for the next 99 years. If something happens to your phone or computer, you’ll be able to download it again on another device.
  • Titles can only be listened to through the Sora app or soraapp.com website. They are not mp3s.
