    Yay for you! I went for Marathoner as well and hit it and then some. I loved this challenge and appreciate your part in making it happen. The JIAM posts and great audiobook recommends have been greatly appreciated, Kimberly.

    You did really well and thank you for hosting. I love audiobooks and so enjoy them although I usually only listen for a short period each day. I didn’t quite make my goal this year, just a few books off,

    Oh my gosh, Kim, you definitely are a marathon listener! I have finally written some of my audio reviews, they will be posted next week. I had planned on listening to 12 books this year, but only listened to seven. Still, it’s better than none 🙂 And I’ve started listening in the car on my to and from work – it makes my commute so pleasurable. I almost want to stay in my car all day 😉

    My goal was 300, today I hit 310. Audiobooks are truly my addiction 😉 Thanks for letting me play along!

  5. Lover Of Romance

    I participated in this challenge but didn’t make my goal!!! So sad. I was just in the worst audio slump most of the year. And I just started getting back in them. Not sure I will make my goal. But I am loving Audible’s romance package because honestly…there are so many goodies especially for that price. I do love seeing so many Kresley Cole books there. She does have some good narrators to her stories.

    This is a great challenge, so thanks for hosting it. Will put up a blogpost about next year’s challenge as soon as I can get my act together.
    I went for the marathoner, and although this wasn’t a good year for me, I hit my goal. 🙂

  7. Mark

    The link up is already closed. 🙁 I never do my wrap ups until 12/31 since I can’t get all my book reviews in until then. I made it through 12 books. Post on the link on my name to see the wrap up post.
