Reading Matters: Resource Links

Audible has made hundreds of titles available for free during the coronavirus pandemic. All stories are free to stream on your desktop, laptop, phone, or tablet. No log-ins, passwords, or credit cards required. Log into audible, it's that simple.

Audiofile lets you download two free audiobooks each week. Beginning on April 30th, the program runs for thirteen weeks.   Whether you are new to SYNC or have used the program in the past, now is the time to register. This year's titles include The 57 Bus, Burn Baby Burn, Picture Us in the Light, and a 2020 TRCA title Monday's Not Coming.

Use the Libby app. Libby is a free app where you can borrow ebooks and digital audiobooks from your public library. All you need is an active library card from a Nova Scotia Public Library. The app is available for both android and apple users.

YouTube has some great audiobooks. I quickly found books by Neil Gaiman, Neal Shusterman, Suzanne Collins, and Rick Riordan. Books such as Animal Farm, Fahrenheit 451, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid are also available. Do you have younger siblings? Check out books by Roald Dahl, Mercer Mayer, Dr. Seuss and more.
