Mogsy’s Progress

I’ve just barely made it to My Precious! Tiara’s progress is blowing us all away, but I don’t think I’m doing too badly either. If I keep up my current pace of listening, I think I can still make Marathoner by the end of the year.

Wendy’s Progress

I’ve made it to Binge Listener with 22 books, which is not too shabby at all. Looking forward to the summer down time to get lots more listening in!

Tiara’s Progress

I hit my long goal of Marathoner and the year is only half over. I’ve officially listened to more books that I’ve sat down and read. I blame a busy schedule (and the realization that I can still listen to books even when I’m busy) for this achievement.

  1. Congrats ladies on your AMAZING progress here^^ WOW!

    I only got into audiobooks midway last year so this is my first full year doing them…I don’t want to jinx myself, but so far I’m ahead of my GR challenge and it’s TOTALLY thanks to my beloved audiobooks. LOVE them ♥


    • LOL. Thank you, but I just blame a super busy schedule as of late, which is why I’m answering comments a WHOLE MONTH late. LOL.
