But yes I am signing up for 2019! I hope to reach Marathoner again, but since I will start working in the Fall who knows. But hey, reach for the sky!
SO Marathoner it is!

  1. Go YOU for 2019! I joined up but didn't make a post about it. I forget - should I do that?

    1. I think that we are meant to? I totally forgot too. As I told you, no update post

  2. I haven't counted but I'm a big audio book reader, because I have an hour commute each way every day. Audio books are what keep me sane on my drives. I might join.

    Good luck in the challenge!

  3. Oh sweet, are the details for the 2019 challenge up already? Nice! I'll have to make an intro post soon as well then!

  4. Thanks for sharing! So glad you are joining in the fun!

  5. I'm doing Maranthoner with you. Cheering you on, B!

  6. All the best, I am sure you'll make it. I will go for a lower total but still yay for audiobooks. Love your list of places to find them.

  7. I confess that I don't do audiobooks well

  8. Good luck with this challenge! I used to listen a lit when I worked because audiobooks were ideal for my dreary commuting hours. Now I struggle to find the time for them which is a shame as I think some stories work better that way

    1. Some stories truly shine this way :)
      And that sucks, but I get it, right now audio is great for me, but will it always be...?

  9. Good luck with this challenge! I am sure you will do well.

  10. I'm still struggling a bit with audio but finding more genres that work for me.

    I had to take a break after getting my ALA books but hope to get back to it next year.

    1. I have found that romance and YA transforms into greatness for me and then it is those I pick the most then

  11. I'm so glad to have you back in 2019. I hope you find some great listens. Happy New Year.
