Audiobook Challenge 2014 Wrap Up Post

This challenge is hosted by one of my fav bloggers, The Book Nympho. Here are the rules (copied from the sign up page):
·         Runs January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014. You can join at anytime.
·         The goal is to find a new love for audios or to outdo yourself by listening to more audios in 2014 than you did in 2013.
·         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, Facebook, LibraryThing, etc.
·         If you’re a blogger grab the button 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.

You can choose whatever level you want to reach, and then start reading. I signed up for :
·         My Precious (I had my earbuds surgically implanted) 30+
I totally knocked that number out of the water with a total of 83 audiobooks!!!  Plus one additional book that I'm pretty sure will be finished tomorrow. That number doesn't even include the books relistened to within the same year, or at times in older years. Let me just say that nearly every book I read this year was an audiobook, mainly because I've been too busy to stop and find time to read, but I still want to know what happens in all the stories. For that reason, my addiction to audiobooks is stronger than ever. I can't wait for the next year's challenge, where I hope to choose a number even higher than this one (if one even exists)
