Audiobook Challenge 2020: 3rd Quarter Update

It’s been another busy three months since my last update, but here’s what I’ve been listening to!

Challenge Details

  • Runs January 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020. 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 2020 than you did in 2019.
  • 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. First update in June 30, 2020 and last update in December 15, 2020.


  • 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+
  • The 100 Club (Audiobook Elite) 100+





With another 21 audiobooks under my belt, that brings my total for the year up to 58! I probably could have managed more, but my audiobook listening took a hit in September. Still, I’ve blown away Marathoner level and I think I can still reach my personal goal of 75 audiobooks by the end of the year, and maybe even 80 if I push myself real hard.

And that’s my progress update! Are you doing the Audiobook Challenge this year? If so, how are you doing?

  1. Doing poorly. I’ve finished a single book in the last quarter. Is it possible to have listener’s block? If so, I’ve got that. I still have faith in you for a hundred! All you have to do is… um. Okaaay, maybe 80 is more reasonable 🙂


  2. Wow, 58 so far, and still another 3 months to go! You have my respect, that’s quite a bit of listening. I’m up to 24. If I can continue that pace it’s possible I’ll hit My Precious. Considering last year I finished Socially Awkward (which seems fairly appropriate for me 🙂), I’m happy with the progress.
