2022 Audiobook Challenge @kimbacaffeinate @twimom227 #2022AudiobookChallenge

The Audiobook Challenge is back for 2022! I’ll be joining Caffeinated Reviewer and That’s What I’m Talking About  the co-hosts for the 10th year of this challenge. I didn’t participated in 2021, but will be back at it in 2022. I’m going for The 100 Club since I listened to more than that in 2021 and audiobooks seem to be my preferred way to enjoy a book these days.

Christmas In July #Challenge

It’s that time again everyone. My annual Christmas in July Readathon. My goal is to read ten Christmas or Wintry stories during July. I am going to try to read all backlist books rather than the new ones for 2022. Here is my tentative list, but I may change the list as time goes on.

20 Books of Summer 2022 #20booksofsummer22

It’s that time again, 20 Books of Summer, or is it 10 or 15? I love this challenge hosted by Cathy at 746 Books. Click here for her announcement post. This year I am setting a goal of 20 books with “Summer” in the title. The majority of them will be backlist books (2020 or prior), that are sitting on my Netgalley Shelf. I am posting a list of possibilities, but will be flexible with this list. My problem is that I also do Christmas in July, so will have to see if I can get them read in July and August.

Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon! Final Check-In  #DeweysApril2022 #deweysreadathon #readathon @readathon 

Well, the readathon has ended and I managed 18 hours. I feel good about that. I had a few interruptions, a visit from a friend, several phone calls, and messages throughout the day, but basically I got a lot of reading and listening done. I finished two books, reread 4 picture books I had read with my grandson so I could write reviews, and started two new books.

My 2022 Challenges all in one place

I try to do a post with all my challenges linked so I don’t lose track of what I am trying to work on. Here I go. It looks like a lot, but I will definitely be double and sometimes triple dipping. (i.e. backlist, audiobook, specific prompt)

Designed to help you tackle all the books you keep meaning to read and still haven’t, this challenge is flexible enough to work for all kinds of readers.
