2013 Audiobook Challenge Wrap up!

I can’t believe the year over! I hope everyoneΒ  reached their Audiobook listening goals. I have to say, this has been my best year yet, and it’s mostly because everything I want to read is being publish on audio, and even though I’m broke, I have loved every minute of it. No more waiting for months or years for the books I added to my TBR (thanks to all the wonderful book bloggers out there!) to be published on audio, most of them are being released at the same time as the printed version. YAY!

This listening thing just keeps getting better and better!

My update from the previous 6 mo.

Audiobooks I've listened since my last up-date.

The Book Nympho

I like to thank my co-host The Book Nympho.

I like to take a moment to thank Jennifer @ The Book Nympho for allowing me to co-host this fabulous challenge (honestly, it’s not really a challenge for me, since this is all I do…I’m a junkie..LOL)

To celebrate another year of great listens, and to thank you for your participation we are giving away, MORE AUDIOBOOKS!

All the participants are welcome to enter to win a 3 mo. Membership to audible.com. For international peeps (since are not eligible for the membership) we have a $25.00 Giftcard.

So, good luck to all! We hope you can join us again in 2015 Audiobook Challenge coming soon!

Enter your link below, I can't wait to check out your listens!

  1. I need to do my wrap up post, probably this weekend. As you probably know, I went a little bit nuts with the audiobooks this year. Last time I checked, I had heard 70 I think.
    Looking forward to next year!

  2. Wow that’s a lot of reading hours. Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  3. My goal was 52 but I\’ve already listened to 89 books this year and I\’m still listening. Thank goodness for the Navy\’s Overdrive web site (DH is retired USN). They have an amazing collection of audiobooks that I get to borrow for free.

    I’ve been pinning my books on Pinterest and it’s fun to look back at all of the pretty covers.

    • Excellent!! How lucky! I wish I could have a place to get them like that! This was a very expensive year for me..LOL, but I can’t help it!
      That’s a great idea, I’m terrible at keeping the books I’ve listened organized and I never thought about Pinterest! I already pin all of our reviews, but I will definitely make a new board for the challenge πŸ™‚
      Thank you! And keep up the good work!!

  4. I am impressed at that huge list of listening up there. I have incorporated more audibooks in my schedule and I was at one point getting in one a week. I haven’t had as much time lately so I have faltered. Still they are terrific when you are driving, exercising and doing housework. I love that I can access many of them with the Overdrive program and get them from the library.

  5. WOW, that’s a LOT of audiobooks! I have some of these on my phone already, and I have listened to a couple of CoHo’s audiobooks, too.
    It’s great that audios are being released so quickly now, it helps a lot to not have to wait for months and months!
    Have a fantastic week πŸ™‚

    • I know! That’s why I have only read 3 books!! LOL I used to do a lot re-listens, now I don’t have time for that with all the new books coming out every week. It’s great but it’s been hard on my wallet..lol
      I had some NA dual narrations that I really enjoyed this year πŸ™‚

  6. Wahoo you did great my friend. My tally post doesn’t go live until December 31st but my audio listen comes in around 32 but is more like 35 since the tally doesn’t update until the review posts..lol. Not bad considering I set a goal of 12 and began by listening to one audio a month and now listen to 3 or 4 πŸ™‚ I am listening to You right now and OMG…creeptastic!! Thank you for encouraging me:)

    • Said the girl that reads a book a day! LOL. I Listen to 3 or 4 a week, If I love it I can finish it in a day while I’m cleaning when I’m off from work, plus I can pin while I’m listening..lol
      I used to go to audible every Tuesday and maybe get one or two at the most, now almost every week there’s a ton I want..LOL

    • That’s a lot more books than what I read this year! My big total for reading, 3 books..LOL
      I’m sure you read a lot, I just listen instead πŸ™‚ I fall sleep with the audio on..LOL No lie! I put the timer on every night..LOL. This is an average of 3 a week.

  7. Thanks for running this challenge, I’ll be back to it for 2015. I am amazed at the audiobooks many of the readers get through, yourself way up there. I increased my listening this year, and am very happy to have made twenty, which has cut down a little on my Audible TBR list in my library.

  8. Congrats Loupe! I think I will be signing up next year πŸ˜‰ probably will be easier than that dreaded TBR list challange, lols πŸ™‚

  9. Woohoo way to go! 153 audiobooks is awesome! (I think I’m at 100, but that’s my best year yet) You’re right that the publishers are really good about releasing audiobooks at the same time as print. (Good for us but bad for our wallets) I still get frustrated though when I book I want to listen to is only available in print!
    I hope that 2015 is another great year for you! I will try to participate in the challenge next year,

    • You know, I was thinking, this is my best year for the amount of books, but I remember listening just as much the past few year. I don’t think I did a lot long books this year, like the Outlander series, and I didn’t do many re-visits like I used to. I used re-listen to my fav. a lot…LOL but now there are so many more choices, I can’t keep up with all the new ones I want listen to…lol
      I was telling Felicia that I read a comment on Book Riot where the commenter said he listened to 400 audiobooks a year! Can you imagine?!
      100 books is a lot! You are junkie πŸ˜‰ Good job!!

    • I just uploaded from my library from audible, I didn’t do a good job keeping up with the widget from Shelfari, but I’m going to try hard for this coming year.
      I saw some peeps keeping track on Pinterst too, I think I’ll do that.
      I just saw your audios, you did great!! πŸ™‚
