2019 Listening Book Club

2019 List

Listening Book Club

I had the pleasure of listening to 95 books last year (2018) and I have listened to 115 so far this year. I listen for free with OverDrive, the free audiobook service that is teamed up with several local libraries. I added Audible with the Audible Escape Package to my budget this year and I just discovered Chirp, another audiobook service and I am enjoying deep discounts with that option. I will easily make me Goodreads Book Challenge of 100 books and will complete *Edel Pace’s 2019 Reading Challenge with the 4 ways I source audiobooks. .

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. ;)
