2015 2nd Quarter Audiobook Challenge Update
It’s that time again. This 2nd quarter of the challenge comes to an end as spring comes to a close and we prepare to head into the summer months. The sunshine beckons for us to come out and play, but not without our audiobooks of course. This challenge is brought to you by The Book Nympho and Hot Listens.
- 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+
Since our last update, I’ve blown both my short-term goal of Stenographer and my long-term goal of Socially Awkward to smithereens. My current full-length novel count rests at 32 books, and my short story count is 8. I predicted in my last post I’d probably end somewhere between Binge Listener and My Precious, but it looks like I might end up actually hitting between My Precious and Marathoner. I might even make Marathoner! I listed both The Alchemist and the Executioness. They’re a double story, but I wanted to put their separate covers up. I’m only counting them as one book, though. I’ll be that woman on the beach this summer sunning with my Kindle in hand and headphones drowning out the world. Just don’t talk to me okay. 😉
Still trying to go for Marathoner, though I’ve fallen a little behind this quarter. More often than not, in the last few months, print books have dominated my time. If I buck up for the rest of the year and stay on track though, I still might just make my goals. Right now, I’m sitting at a comfortable 22 books for the year so far.
I am aiming for My Precious, but life has been pretty busy lately and I’ve fallen behind on my reading overall. Still, I have had a lot of long drives, which is when I enjoy audiobooks the most.
