  1. Mary @StackingMyBookShelves!

    Hello,
    OMG, it has been way too long. I wanted to be part of this challenge. I am not blogging right now but I am thinking about doing it again. I received my BSN and have been working and don’t know if I can spend that much time in the blogging world. BUT — BUT — this challenge is one that I want to be a part of. I hope you are doing wonderful! I hope the grandkids are also doing great and your hubby!

    I am connecting via my GoodReads as that is where I am putting my reviews up!

    Have a wonderful year!

    Mary @StackingMyBookShelves!

    Love “Where I Come From ” by Rick Bragg. Well known Southern author writing about growing up in the South. Highly recommend !

  3. Stacey @ Travel the World in Books

    Great challenge and I can’t wait to get started! This is my first (hopefully of many!) years participating and I haven’t listened to many audiobooks lately. I’m looking forward to changing that and getting lots of ideas from everyone that signs up.

  4. Laura @ Books, Interrupted

    Looking forward to doing this one again! I realized as I was drafting my post that this is my 5th year participating. Crazy how time flies! I remember when I was brand new to participating in challenges – such a newbie then. LOL

  5. Kristine T Hall

    Looking forward to this! I’m going for Marathoner again– and just realized that I never summed up my 2020 audio reads… *sips coffee, clicks Goodreads* Thanks for doing this again!

  6. Chris Alexander

    I made it to Weekend Warrior last year. I’m going to try to bump it up a level this year.

  7. Afifah

    Hi! This year is the first time I join this challenge. I’m targeting the Newbie level! Really excited!

  8. Kate Davies

    Joining again this year, managed 56 audiobooks last year. Can’t wait to see if I can beat that this year.

  9. Kristina

    Decided to try it this forward year! going only with level one, as I had only read one book thus far in Audio 😅. Hence why wanting to join in on the fun!

    My post shall be up tomorrow Dec 28th @ 9am east 🙂

    • Kimberly

      Glad you are joining Kristina. I started slowly with audiobooks and now split evenly between the formats. I find I can read a book and listen to another at the same time. So when I can’t read, I listen while doing dishes, data entry etc.

  10. YalondaReads

    Looking forward to another great year! I achieved my goal in 2020 so let’s see if I can up it to Stenographer. Happy holidays and may your reading moments be many!

  11. Em

    Very Excited to join this year for the first time! I primarily read by Audiobook and am hoping to increase my number of reads through this challenge!

  12. Lola

    I am excited to be joining again next year :). My goal will be to listen to 12 audiobooks, as one per month seems to be the right amount for me at the moment. And welcome to your new co-host Jen!

    I signed up for the challenge for 2021. Do you know how i can get a free widget to show my progress on my wordpress blog? I have a spreadsheet that helps me keep track so i just counted them from the spreadsheet but i like to be able to show the progress on my blog like goodreads does.
