  3. I'm not going to be able to his 100 either. I only got 82 this year. I hope you find some great audiobooks next year.

  4. Yes, you shall conquer this to get to all the good books. :)

    I'll be doing this challenge too. It would be great to reach that hundred club, but I'm going for Marathoner, too.

    1. I will just think that we had 100 last year too, so at least I did it once ;) Even if it was not a thing then

  7. It will be interesting to see how working will impact your listening. I ended up going up (This year I said 65, and listened to 75), I think I am saying 70 for 2020.
