2018 - 2019 Listening Book Club

2018-2019 List

Listening Book Club

I had the pleasure of listening to 95 books last year (2018). I listened for free mostly with OverDrive, the free audio book service that is teamed up with several local libraries and some through Audible. Feel free to follow along, to comment and to recommend books.

2019 Book Collaborations

Inthethickofitblog.com rating legend:

5-stars Loved, loved, loved it, unique topic/story and dynamic narration

4-stars Good story and it had good narrator(s)

3-stars Average topic/story and it had good narrator(s)

I won’t have any lower ratings, when I sense a book is not for me I give up on it, life is to short to grunt your way through a book that isn’t for you. ;)
