Audiobook Challenge 2018: 3rd Quarter Update

It’s been another busy three months since my last update. Here’s what I’ve been listening to!

Challenge Details

  • Runs January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018. You can join at anytime.
  • The goal is to find a new love for audios or to outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2018 than you did in 2017.
  • Books must be in audio format (CD, MP3, etc.)
  • ANY genres count.
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads, Facebook, LibraryThing, etc.
  • If you’re a blogger grab the button and do a quick post about the challenge to help spread the word. If you’re not a blogger you can help by posting on Facebook or Tweeting about the challenge.


  • 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+
  • Marathoner (Look Ma No Hands) 50+




This quarter I reviewed 9 audiobooks (counting only those I listened to from start to finish, i.e. not titles where I tag-teamed both formats) for a total of 37 for the year so far. My Precious level has been reached, which was originally my goal. If I want to go for gold with Marathoner though, looks like I’ll have to up my game in the next few months. I hope everyone is doing well on their reading challenges!

  1. I am totally jealous. I know I could stuff in an extra 3-4 books a year just listening to books while on my little 20min commute to and from work, but when I tried to do that with the Song of Albion trilogy back in ’16, sigh, it was so HARD to concentrate on the books 😦

    More power to you!


  2. I might try this challenge next year and go for the weekend warrior – in fact I could probably make it to 7 books by the end of this year – which I know is almost laughable but I’m only just finding my feet with audio – and more to the point remembering to listen when I’m doing other things.
