Grab your headphones because the #SummerOfAudio is back! Due to popular demand, we’re bringing back the Summer of Audio, and it’s bigger and better with 4,000 new human-narrated audiobooks and even more titles in high-quality text-to-speech audio.
Long-time Bookshare student, Jared, encourages other students to read as much as possible throughout the summer. “Reading with Bookshare takes me into a whole new world of adventure while also helping me cope with life’s challenges.” Jared and his friends have a book club where they pick a book that they are all interested in and that keeps him motivated to read over the summer. With Bookshare’s largest collection of accessible ebooks, you can find your next adventure this summer, too.

Teachers: Upgrade your Students’ Bookshare Memberships
Before you take off for summer break, make sure that your students have a Bookshare Individual Membership so they can download their own age-appropriate books to read during the summer and into the next school year. Whether students are transitioning to a new grade, a new school, or life after school, their Bookshare membership is their ticket to reading enjoyment and lifelong learning. Visit the transition resources page for helpful tips and step-by-step instructions to prepare students for a summer of successful reading.
