Overdrive digital audiobooks


AudioFile Sync Audiobooks for Teens


  • AudioFile Magazine selects the items. Publishers provide access.
  • Multiple users can have the same title at the same time.
  • Download 2 free audiobooks per week during the program. The 2020 program started April 30 and ended July 29.
  • Starting in 2020, this program uses the Sora app (or the soraapp.com website) instead of the Overdrive app.
  • First, go to audiobooksync.com and register (enter your email).
  • Then 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 audiobooksync.com website, and click “sign in”.
  • 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 100 years! Unless you return it early, you can access the audiobook for the next 100 years. If something happens to your phone, you’ll be able to download it again on another device.
  • You must borrow the titles during their designated week though. If you do not borrow one before its assigned week, you will not be able to get that title later.
  • Titles change at Midnight Eastern time, 11 PM Central time on Wednesday nights.
  • Titles can only be listened to through the Sora app or soraapp.com website. This year, they are not mp3s.
