    Uh ooops I put in the number for my mid year instead of the signup # for the first one. My signup is #27, my Mid year update is 31 (and will post tomorrow afternoon.

      As bad as it seems, it could be worse. A young blogger lost her battle with cancer this weekend and I know a young woman who has the beast of addiction tearing her life apart. Only she cannot see all that it is robbing her of. So hang tight my friend and let’s count our blessings even when things seem to be going wrong.

    Not convinced the link will be to my audios folder at the Audiobook Junkies goodreads group … but you’ll find my listens under Writer’s 2019 Marathon Audio Listens… 143 to date and well past my goal. I so enjoy this reading option
    [ and my eyes thank you !] ☺

      You can link directly to a bookshelf on Goodreads. I create on each year. For example 2019 Audiobook Challenge and just copy and paste that URL. Congrats on the number listened to thus far! That is wonderful!

    Wow, you’re doing great on your audiobook challenge! I’ve tried audiobooks, but they relax me too much, and I always end up falling asleep when I’;m listening to a story.

    You are doing great! I didn’t do any sign ups this year. But I am at 40 audios out of my goal of 75 so I think I am in good shape. I do have a couple of long ones I want to listen to though.

  5. Lola

    I haven’t done a mid year update yet, I might add that in with next week’s Sunday post. I just counted and I finished 9 audiobooks already this year, I set my goal at 12 for this year, so I am pretty sure I’ll make that goal and maybe even reach the 15 :). That’s awesome you listened to 61 already. I read Thee Mages and a Margarita and might check out the audio eventually too.

  6. Lorna

    I don’t know how to share my link like this. I kept track of mine on GoodReads. I had 53.

    • Kimberly

      I will pop over and see what you’ve been listening to..I am sure I will spy some Dannika Dark on that list πŸ™‚

    • Kimberly

      You didn’t mean in the linky did you? If so, just copy URL of Goodreads shelf and link that. I am pretty sure you meant to share in comments, but just in case.

    Way to go on your challenge goal, Kimberly! On track for your 100. Yay for Aurora and Murderbot on your list.

    I’m doing great on my challenge goal, too. I’m at 62 and am trying for 100. I loved Aurora Rising as my most recent fav.

    Love how many books you listen to. I have Wild Country in my sights, I am sure it will be as great as the prior books. I think while its hard to choose Diane Chamberlain’s Dream Daughter would be my favourite audiobook so far.

  9. Vi @Inkvotary

    It is embarrassing to have to say it, but so far, IΒ΄ve barely listened to one audiobook. After the prolog and a few lines into the first chapter, I didnΒ΄t make any further progress. Hopefully, that will change before we reach December.

    You continue to inspire me to listen to more and more. I’ve lately found that I can listen to nonfiction easier than if I read it, so it is really broadening my genres.
