Morning Meandering…. Challenges For Me!

1j

Good morning!  These bonus days off have been AWESOME!  Yesterday I had a couple of meetings and a couple of errands in the morning and then the rest of the day was mine – *insert mwwwwaaaaa haaaa haaa laugh here* .    I updated my sidebar, wrote a review, cleaned up some tabs and yes – I ever read.  :D

I have missed books.

Then last night after setting up the rest of my 2013 WHERE Are You Reading Challenge, I stared looking for other challenges I wanted to be a part of…. and here is what I came up with:

2013-Audio-Book-Challenge-300x202

The audio book challenge is always a fun one and really, not a big challenge for me as I am constantly listening to audio every day.  Still… I like to play. :D  Here is how she sets it up:

There are five 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 more than 25 Audio Books
  • You Define the Relationship- Create your own challenge (choose your own name and level starting as low or going as high as you’d like)
This is a fairly laid back challenge and I want it to be as enjoyable as possible.
  • Audio Books can be any genre

  • You can cross challenges

  • You don’t have to be a blogger to participate. You can tell us about what you are listening to in the comments of the monthly link up.

So using Teresa’s  guidelines, I am going to up the level and say I will go for a goal of 40 audio books this year and I will call it the ADDICT Level ;)

 

And Lori is having an A to Z Challenge that looks like fun so I thought I would try that too:

This challenge is simply to read a book that has a title that starts with each letter of the alphabet. 

I think that is about it.  Last year I had signed up for about 7 and just couldn’t keep up with them and honestly I don’t know how I did on them.  They are fun though, so here I go again :D.   It feels good to be getting back on track.

Today on my day off one of the things I will be doing is reading Lenore Appelhan’s debut book, Level 2.  Lenore is awesome, a book reviewer and someone I have had the privilege of meeting in New York.  You can find Lenore at Presenting Lenore, stop by and congratulate her on release day!

  1. Last year, I did a A-Z Challenge that was fun…finding books that started with X and Z was very challenging.

    I’m sure you won’t have any trouble listening to 40 audio books…lol

  2. I am so glad you are entering the A-Z Challenge!!!!

  3. BEST to you on your challenges! I might think about that audiobook one. I am on my third already this year.

  4. Good luck in your challenges. I opted out of the audiobook one this year since i have been listening less…. but am part of the A-Z challenge.

    Have fun with the challenges!

  6. I wish I could do audio books, but the CD player in my car is super sensitive and it takes forever to get through a book. I have tried downloading books to my MP3 player but was unsuccessful. Just imagine how many books I could get through if I could listen to some on CD. I am in my car 2.5 hours a day commuting to work. Dang it!

  7. Good luck with your challenges! I did the A to Z challenge for several years. I hadn’t noticed it until I put together my title index last year, but I have yet to read a title starting with Z since I began blogging in 2008. I thought that was kind of unusual.

  8. Yay, so glad to have you on board! Good luck with your addiction!

  9. Even though I didn’t “officially” sign up for any challenges I still am playing along! Have fun with them!

  10. Those two look fun! I’m doing three challenges this year (if you don’t count the Goodreads total goal), one of which is only from January to March. Mostly I just want to challenge myself to read more off my TBR, so the ones I picked work out well for that. Good luck with your challenges!

  11. Good idea – the challenges and the decision to stick with just two. They’re pretty unspecific too which will make it more fun.
