My 2018 #Audiobook #Challenge!! #ReadChallenges




I am joining the Audiobook Challenge. Up until last year - when my brother introduced me to audiobooks, I found that I loved to listen to them in the car and last year was the first year that I listened to a few books that way. So this year, I want to challenge myself and listen to some books. I am a BIG fan of Caffeinated Reviewer and notice she does a bunch of audiobook reviews and saw that she was doing this challenge so, I joined!

So here is the info:

The Audiobook Challenge is back for 2018!
Join Hot Listens and Caffeinated Reviewer for the 6th year of audiobook fun.
Audiobooks are great for those times you want to read but can’t for some reason - like driving, doing chores, working out, or just relaxing.
I hope all those new and old junkies can join us once again for The 2018 Audiobook Challenge.
Listening has never been better! Thanks to the continued popularity of Audiobooks just about everything is being published on audio…YAY!
We will hold 2 updates with giveaways. First update will be June 30th, 2018 and the final update will be Dec 15, 2018.
There has never been a better time for reading with our ears 🙂

    1. I have listened to Dean Koontz book that had a famous person voice it. I can't remember the guys name and I loved it. I will try to specifically look for those tho. I found out if you have prime and we have had prime for years that you can get audio books for free. Well you pay for prime but I was paying for prime anyway. =)

      Are you joining?
