2013 Audio Challenge 1st Quarter Update!

Posted April 8, 2013 by Tanya in Uncategorized / 2 Comments

It is time to update on my progress with the 2013 Audio Book Challenge!  This first quarter I’ve done better than I thought I was going to.  I have discovered Amazon’s Whispersync and am grabbing up audio books like crazy.  I am new to audio books, only been listening maybe 4-6 months and can’t believe I waited so long to discover this!  

Some genres are easier to listen to than others.  I’m still adjusting to historicals, and some male voices done by women still rub me the wrong way. 

If you haven’t tried an audio book before now, you need to give it a go, and what greater incentive than to join the 2013 Audio Challenge hosted by The Book Nympho and Hot Listens.  To sign up, just go to the original post and add your link there.  Below are all the details.

Also, the hosts have an update giveaway going on for the participants on the update post.

Reading Challenge Details: 

  • Runs January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013. You can join at anytime. 
  • The goal is to find a new love for audios if you are new to them or to outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2013 than you did in 2012.
  • Books must be in audio format.
  • ANY genres count. 
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed. 
  • If you’re a blogger grab the button and do a quick post about the challenge. Please include a link back to this sign-up post so others can join the reading challenge too. 
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads or LibraryThing or on your audible.com or other accounts you have.
