I am excited to start this challenge since I have recently gotten back into audiobooks after a six year hiatus. I can't read in the car anymore (motion sickness) so I have started listening to books. I got through 3 in December so I think I can do the challenge at the My Precious level. That is unless I keep listening to the Outlander series! :) Details reblogged below...
You guys asked for it and the Audiobook Challenge back for 2014! Join The Book Nympho and Hot Listens for the 2nd year of great audio books.
Audiobooks are great for those times you want to read but can’t for some reason like driving, doing chores, working out, or if you’re one of the lucky ones like me, listen to them at work.
I know some of you are thinking, audio books? Pass. I thought that once too. But when you find a great narrator they can make the story even better. There are some series I will only listen even if I can get the Arc I’ll wait until the audio is available because the narrator does such a great job bring the book to life.
Reading Challenge Details:
- Runs January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014. You can join at anytime.
