Audiobook CHALLENGE 2016.


A friend of mine told me earlier this year that she started listening to audiobooks instead of just reading books mostly. Mainly because she was too busy with her new baby to actually make time to read, but well.. It worked better for her this way.
It got me curious about listening instead of reading, so I took the free month at Audible and gave it a try. Sometimes I have to travel a lot by car, so I found it ideal that I could listen to books on long travels.

 And to be honest, I actually liked it ! At first it was weird, listening to the narrator, how she used different kind of voices to differentiate the characters, but later on I knew exactly who was who and I could even combine reading with other stuff, like driving or cooking. 

I did not read a lot of audiobooks, I only finished 2 audiobooks and I am currently about 65% through the third one, but I want to increase this number next year !

So, when I came across an audiobook challenge at the blog of Lisa @ Captivated reader
I immediately went to sign up ! The challenge is hosted by Jennifer @ Hot Listens and Loupe @ The Book Nympho, thank you very much for hosting this awesome event !!

Below you can find the rules and details for this event, that I got from Hot Listens.
