Audiobook Challenge 2017
Are you an audiobook junkie like me? If so, here's a challenge for you. One that's easy enough for the likes of me to participate in! I suck at challenges. It's sad, really. I see the word "challenge" and go into failure mode but I ❤ audio's and the rules here are free enough that I won't feel any desire to break them or just quit altogether. So, who wants to join me?! I'm aiming for Marathoner 50+. That's roughly one audio a week with two weeks free. I think that's doable unless I decide to revisit Stephen King's backlist, lol! Sign-up links are at the end of this post.
♦ Runs January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017. You can join at anytime.
♦ The goal is to find a new love for audios or to outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2016 than you did in 2016.
♦ Books must be in audio format (CD, MP3, etc.)
♦ ANY genres count. (Any?! That is awesome!)
♦ Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
♦ You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads, Facebook, LibraryThing, etc.
♦ If you’re a blogger grab the button and do a quick post about the challenge to help spread the word. If you’re not a blogger you can help by posting on Facebook or Tweeting about the challenge.
