2014 Audio Book Challenge

Posted 10 December, 2013 by Lori @ Romancing the Dark Side in Challenges / 0 Comments

The new year is almost here and of course you know what that means…more reading challenges! I must admit I signed up for this challenge last year and failed miserably, but I’m determined to kick it’s ass in 2014! The 2014 Audio Book Challenge is hosted by two awesome ladies, The Book Nympho and Hot Listens. I always thought audio books were not for me until these ladies and some other friends convinced me to give them a try. They help ease long commutes, slow days at work or make boring chores a little more entertaining. Find more information on this challenge below and sign up HERE.


Reading Challenge Details:
  • Runs January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014. 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 2014 than you did in 2013.
  • 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, Facebook, LibraryThing, etc.
