  1. I didn’t challenge myself this year too much for this challenge. I’m glad I already made quota as I haven’t listened to an audiobook for some time now. I tabled Watership Down for another go since I was so busy with the cross stitch.


  2. Good for you!! I have no idea how many audios I’ve listened to so far this year, though I tend to average 2-3 a month, depending on the length. Fewer this summer, as I am listening to Big Books also!

    I really want to read or listen to The Rosie Result – I enjoyed the first two books!

    Enjoy your audios the rest of the year (and BTW, it is alarming to me that we are almost to the halfway point of the year!)
