Hey, all you audiobook fans!


It's time for another audiobook challenge, and if you participated in the last one, this will seem very familiar to you. We’ve made a few changes to allow you to listen to more of those favorite authors, narrators and genres, but we’re still keeping it simple. Just pick your level, then pick from the lists of genres and characteristics you want to use, and start listening! You are welcome to pick any features that appeal to you, and they can be listened to in any order. Features can be used multiple times, but only once within each genre, so the more genres you use, the more times you can use a given feature. There are no limits on length except for the few rules where it is specified. Rereads/relistens are allowed. You may read small portions of a book you use in this challenge, but in order for a book to qualify you must listen to at least 75% of it.


Now let's get to the good stuff!


First, pick your level:

Occasional Listener - 5 books
Commute Listener - 10 books in a minimum of 2 genres
Steady Listener - 15 books in a minimum of 3 genres
Heavy Duty Listener - 20 books in a minimum of 4 genres
Earbuds are Fused to My Ears - 25+ books in a minimum of 5 genres

Genres to choose from:

Contemporary Romance
Historical – North American
Historical - European
Historical - All Others
Inspirational
Paranormal
Urban Fantasy
Romantic Suspense
Time Travel
Futuristic
Erotica/Erotic Romance
LGBT
Sci-Fi
Fantasy
Steampunk
Children's/Young Adult
New Adult
Classic
Mystery/Thriller
Horror
General Fiction
Non-Fiction


There is obviously plenty of room for overlap among the genres listed...if a book fits in more than one, feel free to use whichever one works best for you.


Now, pick the features you want to find in your audiobooks:

Favorite Author
New to You Author
Second Chance Author (one you've given up on for whatever reason)
Favorite Narrator
New to You Narrator
Second Chance Narrator
Male Narrator
Female Narrator
Dual/Group Narration
First Person Narration
First in Series
Continuation of Series
Stand-Alone (not part of a series)
New Release - 2015
Release Date - 2010-2014
Release Date - 2000 - 2009
Release Date - prior to 2000
Under 6 hours in Length
6 to under 10 Hours in Length
10 to 15 Hours in Length
Over 15 to 20 Hours in Length
Over 20 Hours in Length



When posting your completed audiobooks, please include the genre, the title (preferably a link, if a link isn't an option, please include the author), the name of the narrator/narrators, date finished, the feature you’re using, and star ratings for both the story and narration.

Examples:

1. Historical - European: More Than a Mistress, narrated by Rosalyn Landor - 1/3/15 – Favorite Narrator
Story: ★★★★ Narration: ★★★★★

2. Paranormal: Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh, Narrated by Angela Dawe - 1/7/15 – Favorite Author
Story: ★★★★ Narration: ★★★★


You may either repost or update your original post as you progress, but please repost when you finish...thanks!

Happy Listening!

I am in and I'm going to start at Heavy Duty Listener, but my earbuds will likely be fused to my ears again.

Lauren (laurenjberman) I'm in too for Steady Listener

Can we add Thrillers to the list of genres. I listen to a lot of those. Thanks.

Sure, I'm easy, I'll add it to the list. And if anyone has any other genre they'd like to see added, just let me know. I'll be happy to add genres up until the challenge actually starts, but not after that...I do reserve the right to refuse if I feel the genre is too much the same as something else we have, though! :D

D.G. | 4477 comments Question about the release dates...does that refer to the book or the audiobook? Maybe audios are released years after the books were released.

Just to keep things simple let's stay with the original release date for the book...audio release date can be hard to determine sometimes, especially for older books.

Dee (austhokie) | 7316 comments Karen - can we add children's as a genre? I'm listening to a bunch of books (like charlie and the chocolate factory type books)


message 40: by ~KarenH~, Moderator (new)

~KarenH~ | 6823 comments Sorry Dee, but I think I have to say no on that - both because I specifically said in the rules that I wouldn't add more after the challenge started, and because there is so much overlap with YA. I will change Young Adult to Children's/Young Adult though, since every children's book I looked at was shelved as YA at least a few times...even Green Eggs and Ham! Hope that helps!

I ran out of space in the first post. It wouldn't let me add anything. I figured I'll just keep adding until time runs out :) I like being able to keep track of all my audiobooks in one post


message 50: by ~KarenH~, Moderator (new)

~KarenH~ | 6823 comments Sounds great! I realized after I posted that you didn't actually say you were done with the challenge, just that you'd completed 104 - which is a crazy impressive number...I thought I listened to a lot of audiobooks, and I probably have less than half that many!
