Audiobook Challenge

Last year, I finally found some audiobooks that I LOVED. My prior experience has been sad, with bad narrators ruining books for me. (Honestly, the books would have been so much better in my own head.) With a few under my belt now that were so much better because of great narrators, I’ve got an audiobook going at all times. I am lucky enough that I work from home and don’t commute, but that means I’m not in the car a whole lot. But even just running errands, I can get 20-30 minutes of listening in while out and about.

So…I’ve decided to sign up for the 2015 Audiobook Challenge, which is being hosted by The Book Nympho and Hot Listens. There is also a Goodreads group that you can join.

There is no real commitment, other than just a fun way to give yourself a goal. I’ve signed up at the “Socially Awkward (Don’t talk to me) 15-20” level (they’ve got fun names for their levels), since I seem to be able to listen to 1-2 audiobooks per month (as long as it’s not an Outlander book!). I’ve created a separate Goodreads shelf myself for tagging all my completed audiobooks this year to help me keep track. And since I’m able to layer on audiobooks in addition to times I am actually reading a book, I think I’m going to up my goal for the year from 48 to 52 books. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but since I’ve already got two completed books under my belt, I think I can do it. (Granted, I started them both in 2014, but it’s a great way to get a jump on the new year.

Do you have a reading goal? Do you have a sub-goal for audiobooks? If you’re on Goodreads, leave a link below. I’d love to follow you and see what you’re reading. I’m always looking for recommendations for really great books!
