2012 Challenge: Audio Book Challenge


Teresa at Teresa's Reading Corner is hosting the 2012 Audio Book Challenge. Click on the button or the link to go to the main challenge page for  more details. 

I signed up for the "Married" level to read (with my ears) 40 audio books.

"Married" is a pick-your-own-number level (over 25).  I listened to roughly 50 audio books in 2011, so 40 is probably a little low, but I am hoping that joining this challenge will inspire me to write more reviews of the audio book I listen to.

Last updated on December 26, 2012.  So far this year, I've read 42 books with my ears and am going to finish one more before the end of the year. But I haven't reviewed many, especially lately. I always have great intentions of writing reviews, but have fallen way behind.
