The Audiobook Challenge 2017

Posted on the 25 January 2017 by Thetravelingreader @travelingreadr

Over the last few years, I’ve come to enjoy and love audiobooks.
They keep me company over long drives (well, trips really, since our house is about 2 hours to and from work) and every time I’m doing something menial.
They’re especially perfect for affording me the time to read books despite my busy schedule. As of date, I’ve read (rather listen to) several that I’ve come to cherish with Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One topping the list (I so don’t like his Armada as it was just disjointed).

Hence, this year, I have decided to explore more about my love for words that are being read out loud with the exciting The Audiobook Challenge.
