Audiobook challenge update

2014 Audiobook Challenge
2014 Audiobook Challenge

I’m participating in the 2014 Audiobook Challenge hosted by Hot Listens and The Book Nympho blogs.

I didn’t know June is Audiobook Month so I’m going to challenge myself to listen to one book a week during June!

I have quite a few audiobooks by now since I’ve joined Audible and I’m downloading the two free books from Sync each week this summer and also download books from my library or find them on CD.

At the beginning of the year I said I’d listen to 5-10 audiobooks this year. I didn’t listen to any audiobooks last year so this is a big jump for me! This is my update at the almost six month mark for the challenge.

Books read and reviewed:

1. Blood Rites by Jim Butcher (narrated by James Marsters) — reviewed Feb 28 –Grade B+

2. Maisie Dobbs (narrated by Rita Barrington)–reviewed April 7 –Grade A

3. The Winter Sea (narrated by Rosalyn Landor)–reviewed May 21 –Grade A

Books read, but not reviewed yet:

1. Silence by Michelle Sagara (read in April)

2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor (read in May)

3. The Emperor’s Soul by Brandon Sanderson (read in May)

I’ve listened to 6 books so far this year so that is within my challenge number of 5-10 books (Weekend Warrior). Since there’s over half the year left I think I should be able to move at least to the next level of listening–10-15 books (Stenographer). My favorites so far are The Winter Sea, Maisie Dobbs and The Emperor’s Soul.

I love to read--especially mysteries, science fiction and fantasy. I also love blogging, photography, gardening, playing Mah Jonng, reading with a cat on my lap, throwing a ball for a dog, creating cards to send to family and friends, reading book blogs, using my computer.

  1. I’m one of those who thought I’d never get into audiobooks, but of course once I started I got totally addicted. Remember you can also get a ton of audiobooks free from your library! I browse my county library’s Overdrive collection every week to see what new stuff they get.


    1. Thanks, Mogsy!I do find some audiobooks at my library, but they often don’t have the books or authors I’m looking for either in ebook or audiobook. Maybe the Maryland library system doesn’t have as many as some libraries. I know different libraries seem to have different digital books. The books I find are mostly older books.
