Audio Books Challenge

I was recently chatting with BookNAround about how she's still signing up for Challenges, and since this is my first year blogging and doing challenges I wanted to just stick to the ones I'd signed up for in December/January. Then today I run across this one that I really like and I'm signing up for it. Partly, it's because I have already listened to 3 audiobooks this year, and am participating in Audiosynced, the round-up of audiobook reviews hosted this month by Abby (the) Librarian. Also at the recommendation of a previous boss, I signed up for an Audible membership a few months ago. Between marathon training and driving and gardening (which I hate, listening to podcasts and audiobooks makes weeding bearable), I am listening to more this year. So here's the latest (and hopefully last) Challenge for me:

Audio Book Reading Challenge
hosted by Royal Reviews

There are four levels:
-- Curious – Listen to 3 Audio Books.
-- Fascinated – Listen to 6 Audio Books. This will be my goal since I've already hit Curious but want to keep things manageable.
-- Addicted – Listen to 12 Audio Books.
-- Obsessed – Listen to 20 Audio Books.

Audio books only (natch). You can list your books in advance or just put them in a wrap up post. If you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you. January 1st thru December, 2010.
So far:
You Were Always Mom's Favorite by Deborah Tannen
Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
Nurtureshock by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman

Liked your post. Someday I hope to write a book where the royalties will pay for the copies I give away.
