2012 Audio Book Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for another 2012 Reading Challenge!!

This is my favourite challenge! Audiobooks are what got me back on the road to reading and are my preferred format!! Once again, it is being hosted by Teresa at Teresa's Reading Corner.

Here are the details copied from Teresa's blog:
2012 Audio Book Challenge:

I’ve been listening to your feedback and I’m convinced that the 2012 challenge is going to be better than ever. There will still be targets for achievement, but I’m raising them a bit since many of our participants are avid audio book listeners.

Once again, there are four levels to the challenge

Flirting-Listen to 6 Audio Books
Going Steady- Listen to 12 Audio Books
Lover- Listen to 25 Audio Books
Married-Listen to +++ Audio Books

*A big Thank You to fellow blogger and twitter buddy @dogearedcopy for her suggestions on the level names.

There will be a monthly link up so that we can share what we’ve listened to and make suggestions to each other. Along with that monthly link up there will be a special monthly challenge so make sure you stop by each month!

Inspired by Beth Fish Reads and There’s A Book I’m going to be adding a feature (still unnamed) in which we get to know Audio Book Publishers. I’ll be asking them about what they’ve got coming up as well as about their back list titles and of course, the chance to win an Audio Book or two!

I’ll also be adding a feature in which we can get to know our fellow participants. If you are interested in appearing in this feature, please fill out the attached google form.

Official Challenge dates: 1/1/2012-12/31/2012

Since I am currently listening to my 37th audiobook this year, I am aiming for "Married Level" which is listening to more than 25 audiobooks. I hope to beat my 2011 total, so I will update this post with the exact number that I am trying to beat!
