I am trying to broaden my horizons this year so I found this challenge, and I thought why not? Thanks to Book Princess Reviews for alerting me to this challenge. See all the reviews Mandy is doing here.

I listen to audio books occasionally, and I listened a little more when I had Audible Escapes. I don’t warrant enough audio book listening to justify paying for it.

My plans are to use Libby and Hoopla, just like I have been. So, far I finished two audio books this month. That’s more than normal so I’m already out ahead.

I want to challenge myself to do more so I’m going to try out Binge Listener. That’s around two per month. I already have a few books on hold for the later time of the year. They are:

I’m looking forward to all of these books. So far, I’ve finished two. I’m going to reach the 30 book goal no matter what and am so excited for this.

Do you do audio books a lot? Any favorite books to share with me? I’d love to know if you’re going to sign up too!

Share and Enjoy !

  1. I thought I replied to this yesterday, but apparently not, haha. Good luck with it!! Hoopla has been an amazing space for listening to them, and I’m definitely wishing you luck with hitting that twice per month!! (I think I’m already failing on mine haha).

  2. Ohh! I love this challenge! One of my goals this year was to listen and read more books! I love Libby!! It’s the best! Good luck with your challenge this year!

    1. Thank you! I’m excited but kind of nervous since I don’t listen to a lot of audio books, but I’m going to try and push myself to reach my goal.
