2009 Audiobook Challenge

J. Kaye's 2009 Audiobook Challenge

So I heard about this Audiobook Challenge and was instantly intrigued. I do a lot of my reading by listening to audiobooks. For some books, I do better when someone is reading the story to me instead of me reading with my own eyes. Does that make sense?

I thought this challenge is perfect since:

  1. I should be listening to A TON of audios this year. I was appointed to YALSA’s Amazing Audiobooks for Young Adults. At least I think I was. I never really received an e-mail acknowledging my confirmation e-mail. The term is supposed to start in February so we’ll see. 🙂
  2. I will not be doing as much commuting as I normally do since I will be on maternity leave. My morning and afternoon commutes, though not very long, are prime listening times. I’ll figure something out. I’m sure the baby won’t mind listening to them with me once in a while.

Anyway, the challenge is to listen to 12 books in 2009. I’ll post my books here as I finish listening. Wish me luck!
