    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⭐️♥️

  2. Sarah

    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.

    • Kimberly

      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. 🙂

      • Sarah

        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.

  3. Pam Cecchini

    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.

  4. Chris Alexander

    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.

  5. writer..

    I can’t get the button image to post on the audio junkies group on goodreads. Have tried repeatedly.. need help plz 😉

  6. Kate Davies

    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.

  7. Anne@HeadFullofBooks

    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.

  8. Angela Moses

    I’m not sure if I signed up correctly or not but I want to join!

    • Kimberly

      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!

        • Kimberly

          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.

    • Kimberly

      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!!!

  9. Tari Hann

    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!

    • Kimberly

      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!?

    • Kimberly

      That is awesome, Lillian. I always have one audiobook and one book going. It adds up by the end of the year 🙂

    • Kimberly

      Glad you are joining. I saw your post don’t forget to link up, if you haven’t already done so 🙂

    Hallo, Hallo,

    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!

  11. Lola

    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.

  12. Mandy

    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.
