Audiobook Challenge 2019: 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, 2019 – December 31, 2019. You can join at any time.
  • The goal is to find a new love for audios or to outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2019 than you did in 2018.
  • 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.
  • Updates plus a giveaway will be posted twice during the year. The first update will be June 30, 2019, and the last update will take place on December 15, 2019.


  • Newbie (I’ll give it a try) 1-5
  • Weekend Warrior (I’m getting the hang of this) 5-10
  • Stenographer (can listen while multitasking) 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 was not my strongest quarter, but it does bring my total count of audiobooks completed to 43! This means only 7 more to go until I hit Marathoner, and I have until the end of December to pull it off. I can do this!

  1. Just remember, if you believe in yourself, you can do anything! Even fly into the middle of the sun with just the power of your mind….

    Man, I really missed my calling as a motivational speaker. 7 more audio books seems quite do-able though. Good luck!


  2. You’ve got this, you’ll finish this race! Don’t stop now, keep listening.

    I’m currently a Stenographer, and maybe, just maybe, I’ll become Socially Awkward before it’s all finished. 🙂


  3. I love seeing this challenge each year but I always forget to actually participate w/ posts. It looks like I’m only going to make it to binge listener this year!


  4. You’re doing amazingly well. I really need to try out more audiobooks. I think I need to plan newer ones in advance tho – they always have really long waiting lists 😅
