My reading challenges


I really enjoy reading challenges. I love a challenge I have to work to complete. They also help me try new authors I might not read otherwise, listen to more audiobooks, read more of my TBR pile. I don’t change the types of books I read so much as try to see if I can find more that might help me complete a challenge.

I’m signing up for five challenges I’ve done before and two new challenges. Last year I signed up eight challenges. This year I have one less challenge, but I may decide to sign up for one or two more next week!

2016 Audiobook Challenge

This challenge is hosted by Hot Listens and The Book Nympho blogs.

2016 Audiobook Challenge

I participated in this reading challenge in 2014 and 2015. listened to 17 audiobooks, but had challenged myself to 20 -30 audiobooks. I did listen to a couple more than in 2014 so that’s good.


I’m challenging myself  to the same number as last year–a Binge Listener (20-30 audiobooks).
Updates will be posted every six months and there will be giveaways then, too.
