2015 Audiobook Challenge - (un)Conventional Bookviews

2015 Audiobook Challenge Sign-up

I have decided to do yet another challenge for 2015 – it kind of ties in with my 2015 Bookish Resolutions Challenge, and with my 2015 HW Challenge, so I figured why not? I own lots of audiobooks, but I’m not always so good at actually listening to those books. I have found a few narrators lately that I have really enjoyed, and so I thought that a challenge was just what I needed.

The 2015 Audiobook Challenge is hosted by The Book Nympho and Hot Listens, here are the rules to follow if you decide to sign up as well:

  • Runs January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015. 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 2015 than you did in 2014.
  • 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, Shelfari, Booklikes, Facebook, LibraryThing, etc. – Jennifer has created a Goodreads Group for the challenge, feel free to join.
  • If you’re a blogger grab the button (on the sidebar) 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.

To make things more fun, there are more levels for next year, you can choose as follows:

  • 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) 30-50
  • Marathoner (Look Ma no hands) 50+

I’m going with the Stenographer level, I’m aiming for one audiobook each month, hopefully, I’ll be able to stick with that for a whole year, AND have some fun with all the other wonderful bloggers who are participating in this challenge.

And I have to say I’m quite happy I don’t have to decide in advance which books I have to listen to – I can just choose whatever I want when I want 🙂

  1. Yay, you signed up! I only listed those I have sitting on my computer table waiting for me to review..lol. I have more in my audibles that I bought or got with a credit that I didn’t list..lol. I think one a month is very doable and you will ace it. 🙂

    • I think one per month should be OK, too. I only have audible books, and I added a ton in December because I got a $10 ‘gift’ from audible… and I got extra credits at one point, too. It’s going to be a lot of fun to participate in this challenge as well, Stormi 🙂 I’m glad you’re in it, too!

    • LOL Carmel! You’re right – one more challenge is just one more thing to keep us busy 🙂 And I’m sure one audiobook per month is doable. I really don’t need any more addictions, though 😉
