Hi Kim. I’ll give weekend warrior 1 to 10 a try because I’ve already listened to 2 audiobooks this year.
1. Rescue me by Lill Shalvis 3⭐️
2 NOS4A2 by Joe Hill 5⭐️♥️
Trying for Newbie – I prefer print over audio, but I’m open to trying it. I’m #96 on the Linky, if this is incorrect.
Sarah, create a bookshelf on Goodreads called Audiobook 2020 Challenge. Link that bookshelf to the linky. Each time you listen to an audiobook add it to that shelf on Goodreads. Also if you haven’t done so, send me a friend request. 🙂
Ok, done. I finished 1 book and started a second today. Let’s see if I can get to 5. This is already more published books than I read all of last year, lol.
That is awesome!
I hope I entered challenge correctly. I have listened to 9 of my ten books registered on Goodreads so far this year. Good reading to all.
Do you know what # you are on the linky? I can check it for you.
Before I sign up and decide what number to st my goal at, I have a question. I buy books for my Kindle and often add the narration. Would that count?
Yes, it doesn’t matter how you obtain audiobook.
Thanks Kimberly, I’ll get myself organised, get a post written and then link up. X
I think I’m signed up correctly. I’ve got a shelf on GR, but will also post on my IG planner account where I am sharing another reading challenge.
You’ve got it! I sent you a friend request on Goodreads 🙂
Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard
I’m all signed up! Hopefully this year I’ll be better about writing the reviews as well as listening to the audiobooks.
As long as you add on or two sentences on Goodreads you are fine.
Lark @ The Bookwyrm's Hoard
Great! Thank you.
I can’t get the button image to post on the audio junkies group on goodreads. Have tried repeatedly.. need help plz 😉
Hmm, let me come over and try. It works on blogger and I had others test. So weird.
Don’t kill me but I posted the button.
where? it isn’t on my goodreads goal post, so I’m not sure where you posted it..
Thanks for helping !!
I hope I signed up ok but I love this idea, I use audiobooks a lot as my mental health causes overload and I can’t concentrate on print.
Yep, you are good to go Kate. I sent you a friend request on Goodreads.
I don’t think your html code is correct. I can’t get the button to appear when I copy and paste it. I’ll just add a link from my blog.
No worries, I tested it and it worked, maybe gremlins.
faith hope and cherrytea
actually it refuses to work for me as well…
can’t get it to post on my goodreads audio group for days and trying all manner of changes… );
I’m in. I just have to create my blog post announcing my participation. I enjoy audiobooks so much but don’t listen to as many as I used to because I no longer have a commute.
I’m not sure if I signed up correctly or not but I want to join!
You did it exactly right.. Angela from Musings of a Literary Wanderer correct? The link went right to your challenge page. Best of luck hitting the Binge level!
No, that’s another Angela. I don’t have a blog.
That’s ok. You don’t need a blog. What linky # are you and what did you link up with? A lot of non-bloggers create a bookshelf on Goodreads. (I make one there myself) Like 2020 Audiobook Challenge. You can then link up the shelf.
Angela, Moses Moses
I think I did it right now . I’ve never done anything with Linky. I’m not sure why mine has a big X though.
You are linked up now; I sent you a Goodreads friend request. As for the image, you need to upload one, since the linky couldn’t pull one from Goodreads. No big deal though. Update it if you want. Some images are crazy.
Angela, Moses Moses
Woot woot!! Thank you! I’m definitely excited about this challenge!!!
Signed up! I’m excited for this!
Boom! Officially signed up!
Signing up and I linked up! Is there a certain tag or way to post our audio books to keep track of our numbers?
Excellent idea #2020AudiobookChallenge
Oh man, with all the December busy-ness I didn’t get a chance to report back that I actually got 7 books in 2019 listened to. I was only at 2 mid-year–most get listened to during fall crafting season. I’d like to do this again but will track on a GR shelf and hopefully be better about linking this year!
LOL, Tari I do this all the time!! I signed up for several challenges last year, kept track on Goodreads and on my blog but failed to update on host site!?
Lillian @ Mom with a Reading Problem
Love this challenge! This year I’m going to attempt one audiobook a week. 😀
That is awesome, Lillian. I always have one audiobook and one book going. It adds up by the end of the year 🙂
We’re both signing up again 🙂
Want to join the audio book challenge
We’d love to have you join us!
I will definitely sign up for this one! I’ll come back with my sign up post as soon as I get it up.
Glad you are joining. I saw your post don’t forget to link up, if you haven’t already done so 🙂
I was only mildly successful in 2018 listening to more audiobooks – I’m hoping 2020 is a better year for me as I enjoyed this reading challenge despite the lack of focus, concentration and achievement! 🙁 I did help add several audiobooks to my regional library’s OverDrive account which I look forward to continuing to do. I also enjoy Scribd. Thanks for continuing to host!
Glad you are back!!
I enjoyed participating in this challenge in 2019 so I am joining the 2020 again. This time I am going for the Socially Awkward (Don’t talk to me) 15-20 level.
Yay, glad you are joining us again Lola 🙂
I did a combined 2019 Final Update & 2020 Sign Up post. I’m shooting for the 100 Club this year. Good luck to all joining and thanks, Kimberly and Hot Listens for hosting! 🙂
I’m in. I’ll set things up on my blog after the New Year! Woo hoo!
We added a new achievement level today!
Aaah, I love this challenge. 2019 was definitely the year I got back into audiobooks and would definitely like to improve on the 11 I read this year.
Yay. I hope you rock it!
I’m going with My Precious (I had my earbuds surgically implanted) 30+ in 2020.
Sweet! Good luck 🙂
I love this one. I’m in for Marathoner. Thanks for co-hosting, Kimberly!
We just added the 100 Club ?
