How many minutes of listening do you think you'll do this year? Keep track of your listening on your Personal Challenge Log and at the end of the year, post your cumulative listening. We'll see who logged in the most minutes for a special reward!*

*To be eligible for a special reward, you must create and maintain a Personal Challenge Log.

Effie Kammenou (effiekammenou) | 32 comments I have a question. On the log, do we keep editing the and add the new audiobooks to the same comment section, or do we add the new books in a new comment on our log?

Also, if a book is technically not a romance do we still count it as minutes read or we don't log that book in?

All genres count in the challenge so that includes non romance.

It’s your choice how you want to structure your log but I highly recommend you keep a running total.

Here’s my log as an example of editing one comment box each time I complete an audiobook:

Here’s an example where a new comment box is used each time an audiobook is completed. Note how she maintains a running total.

Hope this is helpful.

At the beginning of the year, we challenged members to track their listening minutes during the year. Now it's time to see your results! You may begin posting your results on and after January 1.

Post your total listening hours in 2018 from your personal challenge logs and let's see who had the highest number of minutes logged for the year. Deadline for posting your results is January 7. We will select the winner on January 8.

You must have created a personal challenge log to participate in this challenge. See message #1 above for guidelines.

When posting your results, include the total minutes and the link to your personal challenge log.

Wow! Don't be embarrassed. you are lucky you can listen to books at work. I'm constantly interrupted so it makes it hard.

KathyB  (kathybrown) | 664 comments I finished 2018 with 77,686 minutes. This is my first year keeping track of audiobooks minutes. It was fun to look back and see all the great (and not so great) audios over the past year.

Looking forward to new audio challenges in 2019. I wish my fitness goals could be so enjoyable!
