      Great job. I have no commute unless you count travel from coffeemaker to computer..LOL, but listen as I do my daily chores.

    You’re doing really well with 38 books. There are some great books on that list. Some I’ve listened to and some that I still need to try. I’m a huge fan of the Immortals After Dark series and the Search and Rescue series. I still need to get to the Dannika Dark books. I hope you find as many great books in the second half of the year. Thanks again for co-hosting.

      38 are the ones reviewed I am actually at 47. LOL I am listening to Run to Ground the new Ruggle series and oh man it’s good!!

    You are doing great! I’ve listened to 16 audiobooks (not all the reviews are posted yet) and my goal is Binge Listener. I’m almost there and even without this challenge I automatically have an audiobook ready to listen to. I love listening to them during my commute (and it’s helping me with my TBR).
