  • Challenge Details

    • Runs January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017. 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 2016 than you did in 2016.
    • 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.
