It’s that time of year again where we all find the challenges we want to participate in for the year. The Audiobook Challenge is one I have done for the last few years and it has changed my life. Audiobooks have become a staple in my life that I need to relax when I can’t read my ebook or paperback. In 2017 I pretty much did close to the same numbers as 2016, but I’m hoping for more in 2018. I will participate at the My Precious level of 30 – 50 books again, but my hope is to get to 40. I missed that number by one book in 2017. I’m hoping that this year I’ll get over that 40 mark. This page will be my sign up post as well as my tracking page, so come on back to check my status whenever!
