It’s that time again to make my commitment to the 2020 Audiobook Challenge hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer and Hot Listens. The links will take you to their sign up pages where you will find many places you can find audiobooks. This year I’m going to go for the “Marathoner” level since that is where I hit in 2019. I don’t know if I’ll be able to make that again in 2020! Make sure to visit the Track Me Here page to see what books I’ve read for the challenge!

So. That year was a total bomb! Did I reach my goal of 50+? Hell no. Covid affected a lot this year and my audiobook listening was one of them. I spend my listening hours in the car, and due to months working from home, a lot of listening hours were missed. I did achieve My Precious with a total of 32 audiobooks for 2020. Not all of them have been reviewed yet so they are not all showing up in my list. The results list will be updated as I get the reviews written. To say I’m disappointed is an understatement. While I worked from home I really missed my listening time, but at home, I get interrupted so many times, it was pointless to try and get any listening time in. Since I am back to work, have a TON of Audible credits and audio review books, I am confident that 2021 will be a much better listening year. Check out some of my listens that I did review, there are some great ones in there.

For those of you new to the challenge. Here are the details you should know.
