2019 Challenges

2019 Audiobook Challenge

This will be my fourth year participating in this challenge! Hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer and Hot Listens, the challenge is one of my favorites as I LOVE audiobooks. I’m most definitely a Marathoner!


Challenge Details

  • Runs January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019. You can join at any time.
  • The goal is to find a new love for audios or to outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2019 than you did in 2018.
  • Books must be in audio format (CD, MP3, etc.)
  • ALL genres count.
  • 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.

  1. Yay, I didn’t know yet they had posted the challenge. I’ve been waiting. I’ll have to make my post for the challenge! Do you know if there will be a specific shelf name this year like audio-2000 on Goodreads? I think I will be a Marathoner for 2019. Anne – Books of My Heart

  2. I listen to at least 4 audio books per week right now, so would have no problem reaching the Marathoner level. My problem is keeping track and posting to challenges. I will give it a go, but can’t promise I will be diligent. I will make a shelf on my Goodreads profile to add them to and see if this works.

  3. Woo hoo, my marathoner friend! I really need to get back into my audiobooks this year, so I’m hoping to join you. I bought the new paper white that plays audios, so I’m hoping that will make it easier for me to listen, too. AND I have some great audios just waiting- looking at you, Becoming! Good luck with your challenge, Jonetta! ♥️

    1. I have the audiobooks on my phone. A few years ago, my hubby bought me a fabulous pair of Bose wireless headphones that I love almost more than life. I wear them while cleaning, cooking and other mindless tasks. I also have my phone synced with my car’s audio system for road trips, long and around town.
