2020 Audiobook Challenge

2020 Audiobook Challenge

The Audiobook Challenge is back for 2020! I’ll be joining Hot Listens and Caffeinated Reviewer for the 8th year of this challenge. I’m going for Marathoner again as I listen to more audiobooks than I read these days!

Challenge Details

  • Runs January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020. 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 2020 than you did in 2019.
  • Books must be in audio format (CD, MP3, etc.)
  • ANY genre counts.
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
