2018 Audiobook Challenge


The Audiobook Challenge is hosted by Hot Listens and Caffeinated Reviewer for the 6th year of audiobook fun.  2018 was another great year of listening.

 I met my goal of 48 with a total of 109 audiobooks for the year, unless I finish another one today.

    • Thanks. I was looking at the list this morning and seriously they were all but 1-2 amazing reads. I am so grateful to have such wonderful options. I bought *gasp* 115 on audible and have read almost none of them. I am starting to rectify that today. I am halfway through one of my purchases and will easily finish it so 110!

  1. You really hit the audios hard this year and listened to some good ones and established some more favorite narrators, I’m sure. It sure does free up to make chores more pleasant. 🙂

    Hope you pick up some great stories and add more good narrators to your list for next year, Anne.

    • I tend to listen to audios in the daytime when I am more active and read books more first thing in the morning or before bedtime. Or instead of bedtime.

      Here’s wishing you the best reads in the New Year! I hope to binge through Melinda Leigh series you brought to my attention thru KU soon.

    • Thanks. I really have fit it into my daily routine well so I listened to more than I expected. I projected 1 a week with a couple weeks where things didn’t work out. Instead, I find I almost always listen to 2 per week unless they are the 20-30 hour ones like Deathstalker or the Robin Hobb or Harry Potter books!

    • Thank you! It’s just become such a part of my life I’m able to listen more than I expected. It really fits well with my knitting and sewing and quilting crafts and while I’m cooking or waiting for my daughter’s medical appointments or setting up blog posts. I can’t listen while commenting or writing posts though. I also watch almost NO tv. That’s probably a big factor too.

  2. Wow that’s awesome you listened to so many audiobooks. And it’s fun to see them on a list like this. I’ll have to look up some of these.

    • I was noticing earlier today though how many of them were from November and December, like 25-30%. I have been listening while doing various chores. It’s great as I couldn’t listen at work except the 20 minutes at lunch. But I’m meshing into my life overall. Thanks.
