2015 Audiobook Challenge Sign-ups and Goals

Print



The Book Nympho and Hot Listens are bringing their audiobook challenge back for a third year, and seeing how I KILLED my goals in 2014, I’ve decided to participate again. I didn’t quite make it to 50 (still holding strong at 46), so I’m keeping my target level the same, and who knows maybe I’ll end up surprising myself. Here are the deets.

Reading Challenge Details:

 

  • Runs January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015. You can join at anytime.
  • The goal is to find a new love for audios or to outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2015 than you did in 2014.
  • Books must be in audio format (CD, MP3, etc.)
  • ANY genres count.
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads, Shelfari, Booklikes, Facebook, LibraryThing, etc. We’ve created a Goodreads Group for the challenge, feel free to join.
  • If you’re a blogger grab the button and do a quick post about the challenge to help spread the word. If you’re not a blogger you can help by posting on Facebook or Tweeting about the challenge.

 

Levels:

 

  • Newbie (I’ll give it a try) 1-5
  • Weekend Warrior (I’m getting the hang of this) 5-10
  • Stenographer (can listen while multi-tasking) 10-15
  • Socially Awkward (Don’t talk to me) 15-20
  • Binge Listener (Why read when someone can do it for you) 20-30
  • My Precious (I had my earbuds surgically implanted) 30-50
  • Marathoner (Look Ma no hands) 50+
