I'm joining the #2019 #Audiobook #Challenge!!


The Audiobook Challenge is back for 2019!


Join Hot Listens and Caffeinated Reviewer for the 7th 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 2019 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. The first update will be June 30th, 2019 and the final update will be Dec 15, 2019.
There has never been a better time for reading with our ears 🙂
