2017 Audiobook Challenge

I can’t believe that this year is almost over. It has been a good year for audiobooks. I’ve listened to 110 audiobooks this year. This is down a bit, but I’ve also listened to seven books that were over 20 hours long. One of those was The Stand by stephen King, which was 47 hours long. So, I’m going to call it a win.

Audible also did a ton of great deals as the celebrated their 20th anniversary. Audible also created the Narrator Hall of Fame and had their first round in inductees. If you haven’t check out the new Narrator Hall of Fame. I know several of my favorites were included and some that are new to me, but I’ll be on the lookout for something from them, for sure. Last, Audible has a new package for romance readers. You get unlimited access to their list of books (look for the R on book page). It is $6.95 per month for members and $14.95 for non-members.

This if the final wrapup 2017 Audiobook Challenge! Special thanks to our co-host  Caffeinated Book Reviewer for joining us for this year.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.
