2019 Audiobook Challenge

This year I’m taking part in the 2019 Audiobook Challenge, hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer & Melanie @ Hot Listens. I do enjoy listening to audiobooks while doing things around the house, long drives or during workouts, this challenge is perfect for me.
There are several different levels to choose from and I’m challenging myself to be Socially Awkward (Don’t talk to me) 15-20 audiobooks. I’m hopeful that I can move up to a higher level.

The Challenge runs from January 1 to December 31, 2019. Please visit Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer, for challenge details and to sign-up if you would like to participate.

  1. I LOVE audiobooks! That's why Hoopla is about the best thing to happen to me this year. I think I tried doing this challenge two years ago, but I had so many challenges I kept forgetting to participate. Have fun and good luck! šŸ‘✨

    1. Thank you. I've heard many wonderful things about Hoopla, I'll have to look into it. I usually download audiobooks from the library, and for some reason the hold list isn't as long as books.

  2. Oooo good luck on this challenge! I loved listening to audiobooks back in my junior year of high school while going to school since it took an hour. Now it takes me maybe 15 minutes to get to college, so I didn't feel the need to listen to audiobooks constantly.

    1. Thank you Sophia. Oh my goodness, you probably went through so many books during that time on the way to school. I enjoy listening to as I do things around the house daily.

  3. Good luck with your audiobook listening. I used to be a fan but only managed two I think this year. Hopefully seeing recommendations from folks doing this challenge will inspire me to get back in to them :-)

    1. Thank you Stephanie. I do enjoy them, but at times I think it would be faster to read the book. It's great when I clean house, I always find something else to clean just so I can listen longer.

  4. Yay! I'm participating in this one next year. I wish I had known about it sooner, and I would have done it this year, too. Good luck!

    Lindsi @ Do You Dog-ear? šŸ’¬

  5. So glad to have you join us for the Audiobook Challenge. I hope you find some great listens. Good luck on all of your challenges. Happy New Year.

    Melanie @ Hot Listens & Books of My Heart
