2015 3rd Quarter Audiobook Challenge Update

2015 Audiobook Challenge

Another quarter is behind us, and it’s time again for another update on our progress for the 2015 Audiobook Challenge. We hope everyone had a great summer and got some good listens in, because we’re in the final stretch now. Less time to curl up with a book now that we’re heading into the busy fall season? No problem, whether you’re at home or on-the-go, it’s audiobooks to the rescue! This challenge is brought to you by The Book Nympho and Hot Listens.

Don’t forget to check out our progress from our 1st quarter and 2nd quarter!


  • 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+

Tiara’s Progress

I think I can, I think I can. Haven’t listened to as many books as I’d wanted due to busy schedules with work and life, but I’m still puttering along. I’m still aiming for Marathoner ( only 4+ more books to go!) at this point, but I’m still patting myself on the back because I way surpassed my initial goals for this challenge, which was a short goal of Stenographer and a long goal of Socially Awkward. So, I’m pleased with my progress on this challenge. I didn’t hit any of my upcoming listens from the last list yet, but hopefully, I’ll rectify that in the upcoming months.

Mogsy’s Progress

I made up for my embarrassingly sluggish performance last quarter by kicking some serious ass this quarter on the audiobook challenge. Back in June, it was looking bad for me. I was lucky if I was going to end up in the mid-range of My Precious. But now that I’m 42 audiobooks down for the year and with three more months to go, things are looking quite different. I like my chances so I’m going to go for broke and aim for Marathoner. I’m still behind Tiara, but 8+ more audiobooks to go seems entirely doable.

Completed Listens:

galaxy game Blood of Elves The Unremembered The Red First Light

Lords of the Sith When We Were Animals raven boys Crashing Heaven

Pacific Fire Departure The Time of Contempt Baptism of Fire

The Windup Girl The Witch Hunter The Trials The Good The Bad and the Smug

Aftermath Queen of Shadows Flex Reign of Iron

Upcoming Listens:

Six of Crows Ancillary Mercy Flux Dark Disciple

 Wendy’s Progress

Slow and steady wins the race — not that I’m actually racing anything. I’ve been officially working full time for several months now and getting into the full swing of the school year. I keep assuring myself that I will find the right groove to make sure I’m slotting in all the things I need and want to do. Reading is high on that list, but sadly, after a long day, sometimes I’m just too exhausted and/or unfocused to do that. Thank goodness for audiobooks!
