2017 Audiobook Challenge

Thanks so much to Kim @ Caffeinated Books and Melanie and Loupe @ Hot Listens for hosting this challenge this year!

From our hostesses:

The Audiobook Challenge is back for 2017!

Join Hot Listens and our new co-host Caffeinated Book Reviewer for the 5th year of great audio books.

Audiobooks are great for those times you want to read but can’t for some reason like driving, doing chores, working out, or if you’re one of the lucky ones like me, listen to them at work.

I hope all those new and old junkies can join us once again for The 2017 Audiobook Challenge.

Listening has never been better!  Thanks to the continued popularity of Audiobooks just about everything is being published on audio…YAY!

We will hold 2 updates with giveaways. First update will be June 30th, 2017 and the final update will be Dec 15, 2017

There has never been a better time for reading with our ears 🙂
