2020 CHALLENGE - Audiobook Challenge, Wrap-Up Post



I signed up for the 2020 Audiobook Challenge hosted by Hot Listens and Caffeinated Reviewer. It was my first year for the challenge because I love audiobooks and read a lot of books with my ears. Then 2020 happened and I forgot I had even signed up. I didn't keep track as I went along. Thanks to LibraryThing, I can go back and piece together my list.

My plan was to find as many audiobooks from my library that are on all the book lists I'm working on, with the goal of getting through at least 30 audiobooks in 2020. I ended up reading 61 audiobooks, so far surpassed my goal of 30!

Almost all of the audiobooks I read I got from my library, using the Libby app, and listened to the on my phone. I have a bare-bones Audible account and got a few books using it. I find that most of the books on Audible are available through the library, although you have to waitlist many of them.
