2015 Audiobook Challenge

Hot Listens/2015 Audiobook Challenge
I enjoyed this challenge last year and   Hot Listens  and The Book Nympho are hosting it again.  Go on over there to check the full details out. It is very well run - gotta love that about a challenge.

The challenge is to outdo yourself from the previous year, and as I made it up to 20 last year I am going up to the next level.

End of Year Summary
I have listened to more than I thought. Taking on a little extra walking has led to more books listened to. Had so many that I loved, didn't really have any that didn't work for me. The ones that seem memorable at this time are:

I love all the in Death series so this one really stands for them all. I read many of them, because I have them in paperback, but any I don't have I listen to and I love them.


  1. I am also joining this challenge - 50+ is my goal for 2015.

  2. I joined this one on the goodreads group option

    1. Great. I keep meaning to check out the Goodreads group but I am getting a little befuddled, methinks I took on too many challenges, but so far head above water!
