Audiobook Challenge 2020: 4th Quarter Update

It’s our final update for the 2020 Audiobook Challenge! Thank you to the challenge hosts and here’s to another year of great listens. Let’s see how everyone did.

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.

Levels

  • 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+

In the last few months of 2020, I added another 15 audiobooks to my final count, making my grand total…73! Oooh, SO CLOSE. My “soft goal” for the year was 75 so I didn’t quite make it, but I think I got close enough that I will still congratulate myself 😉 It was a great year overall for the challenge, and at least I blew away last year’s total which was 60, so I call that a win! I hope everyone also did well on their audio goals this year, and we’ll see you again for the Audiobook Challenge 2021!

  1. Thanks for the post, Mogsy. I have never listened to a book, but my sister does, all the time, and she recommends it too. Perhaps 2021 will be the year of the audio book for me.
    Have a happy and healthy New Year.

  2. 73 is fantastic, nice job! I’m continuing to get into audiobooks. My goal this year was to break out of the Socially Awkward level, and with 33 I managed to skip a level up to My Previous. So many great books left to listen to!

  3. That’s very impressive. And tbh, now I’ve discovered that I can get along with audio books I suspect I will try more this year. I could do 15-20 I think.

  4. 73 is still amazing! I’d love to get that high a count of audiobooks again. I’m still feeling things out at my new job, I think now that I’ll be having some alone time in the office I might be able to devote some of that to audiobook time. I’m seriously impressed by you with this challenge!
