2019 Audiobook Challenge

The Audiobook Challenge is back for 2019!

Join Hot Listens and Caffeinated Reviewer for the 7th year of audiobook fun.

Audiobooks are great for those times you want to read but can’t for some reason like driving, doing chores, working out, or just relaxing.

I hope all those new and old junkies can join us once again for The 2019 Audiobook Challenge.

Listening has never been better! Thanks to the continued popularity of Audiobooks just about everything is being published on audio…YAY!

We will hold 2 updates with giveaways. First update will be June 30th, 2019 and the final update will be Dec 15, 2019.

There has never been a better time for reading with our ears ?

    I’m putting my goal low for 2019 (25) since I plan on focusing more on my print and ebooks TBRs.

    I am looking forward to this. My main genre is fantasy/sci fi. I commute 1.5 hours one way daily, couldn’t do it without my audio books.

    • That’s an awesome amount of time to listen to books every day. I’m sure I’d be upset by the wasted time if I didn’t enjoy audiobooks. Have you read / listened to the Alex Verus series by Benedict Jacka? It’s urban fantasy and we are doing a read-along in 2019. It is all on audio at my library; it might be at yours also.
