I Joined the Audiobook Challenge

After reading about the 2018/2019 Audiobook Challenge, I decided to sign up…I have three under my belt already and one in the queue right now. I’ll probably have to recheck it out because I decided to read An Innocent Man by John Grisham first, so Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchman got put on the back burner.

I started listening to audiobooks through my Libby app from my local library around the end of last year, so far I have read Escape Clause (John Sanford), Finders Keepers (Stephen King), and The Girl on The Train (Paula Hawkins). Reese Witherspoon is narrating the Harper Lee book, and I think I need to change the speed she speaks because it’s too hard to follow with her reading that fast.

Thanks to Heather Tasker for introducing me to the contest.

If you are interested in joining the challenge, it is not too late.
