MBS 2017 Audiobook Challenge Semi-annual Update and Check-in

2017 Audiobook Challenge

 2017 Audiobook Challenge

Audiobook Challenge Levels:

Newbie (I’ll give it a try) 1-5
Weekend Warrior (I’m getting the hang of this) 5-10
Stenographer (can listen while multi-tasking) 10-15
Socially Awkward (Don’t talk to me) 15-20
Binge Listener (Why read when someone can do it for you) 20-30
My Precious (I had my earbuds surgically implanted) 30-50
Marathoner (Look Ma no hands) 50+

I listened to 70 Audiblooks in 2016. I chose the Marathoner Level again for 2017 and hope to get to at least 70 if not more!
I have reached My Precious level  at 30 audios in five months and two weeks so I am moving along pretty well.
