The Book Nympho

Back by popular demand, Audiobook Challenge is back for 2016! Join The Book Nympho and Hot Listens for the 4th year of great audiobooks.

Audiobooks are great for those times you want to read but can’t for some reason like driving, doing chores, working out, or if you’re one of the lucky ones like me, listen to them at work.

I know some of you are thinking, audiobooks? Pass. I thought that once too. But when you find a great narrator they can make the story even better. There are some series I will only listen even if I can get the Arc I’ll wait until the audio is available because the narrator does such a great job bring the book to life.

reading challenge details:

  • Runs January 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016. You can join at any time.
  • The goal is to find a new love for audios or to outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2016 than you did in 2015.
  • Books must be in audio format (CD, MP3, etc.)
  • ANY genres count.
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads, Shelfari, Booklikes, Facebook, LibraryThing, etc.
  • If you’re a blogger grab the button (on the sidebar) and do a quick post about the challenge to help spread the word. If you’re not a blogger you can help by posting on Facebook or Tweeting about the challenge.

Owner/Blogger at The Book Nympho
I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

    I would love to join this challenge. But I can’t figure out how. Last year I listened to 222 audiobooks. So this year my goal is again 200. So. How do I join?

  2. I have decided to discontinue my blog which means my sign up post Jane’s Book Blog, number 119 is no longer active.
    Instead I have joined as Jane on Goodreads, number 137

    I’ve just jumped onto the bandwagon 🙂 I can’t wait to start this challenge. Thanks for hosting it again ^___^

  4. Thanks for hosting again! This is seriously one of my favorite challenges. Last year was my first year and I blew my goal out of the water because I enjoyed it so much! 🙂

  5. Thanks for doing this challenge again for 2016, I’m looking forward to it. On another note, how did you create the progress tracker? I’d love to do one, it’s nicer looking than a Goodreads link. 🙂

    Do you require a review with each audiobook? I used to review all the time, but just don’t have the time anymore.

    I’d like to sign up but can’t really see how to. I already join goodreads challenge each year and I only read audiobooks. This year I think I am around 215 audiobooks so far. So how do I sign up?
