2016 Audiobook Challenge

Once again, I'll be listening to audiobooks next year.  I try to get at least one each month, and will again try to get up to 30, more if time permits. Go here to sign up and see more details.

2016 Audiobook Challenge
The Audiobook Challenge is back for 2016! Join Hot Listens for the 4th year of great audio books.
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 hope all those new and old junkies can join us once again for The 2016 Audiobook Challenge.
Listening is never been better, thanks to the popularity of Audiobooks just about everything is being published on audio…YAY!
There has never been a better time for reading with our ears :)
