I have actually read a total of eight audiobooks to this point. I am including the first five below. I think eight is a bit overwhelming in one post, and I also do not think I will continue with this streak into the next month. Although, who knows. I am really enjoying listening to more audiobooks.
Some people question if audiobooks can really be considered reading. I have heard there are studies that show that you process the information the same way. I LOVE research, and may just go find this and write a post entirely devoted to the research of audiobooks. For now, I will say that I remember the books the same if they are audiobooks as if they are books. The only exception to this is if it is an audiobook performance, as opposed to a reading. I have the review an audiobook performance below. I do not tend to listen to these as much.
This post just focuses on the narration portion of the book. To read the actual review of the book you can click on the link under the picture. I do not rate the narration. I just give my feedback. I would not know how to translate it into an actual star rating, nor do I think it really is the best way to communicate how I felt about the narration.
I really wasn't planning on joining another challenge this year. I have the Amazon's 100 books to Read in a Lifetime to work on and I have already joined the The Alphabet Soup Challenge. That and with running my blog I didn't really want to overwhelm me. Yet, I couldn't resist. The reality is that this challenge fits naturally into my planned reading goals, as well as an addition I already wanted to include for the blog.
I joined because:
~ I already read audiobooks
~ I have a huge backlock of audiobooks that I own that I need to read
~ I planned on reading more audiobooks this year
~ I wanted to start reviewing the narration portion of the audiobooks that I am reading
I will be posting updates throughout the year. You can follow at my 2018 Audiobook Challenge page.
