This year I am signing up last minute. With only three months left for this challenge, I hope that I will be more successful than I was the years before. The challenge already runs for ten months now, but I had no audio I was willing to listen to, and with the last time in mind, where I had problems finishing at least one, I never thought of giving it another try. The audiobook challenge is hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Reviewer and That´s What I Am Talking About.

So here we go again. With only two and a half months left I think that I will be able to make the Newbie.

I do have quite a mountain of audiobooks, mostly unheard. Audible Germany offers from time to time a cheaper membership and with the “Short Abo” I had paid for during the summer, I have now some new audiobooks added to the already existing mountain of unheard audiobooks I call my own *sigh* So, some sort of fascination is already existing. But I have barely time to listen to them, except when I go powerwalking or am on my way to the grocery store. But at home, while doing my household or being in the garden? No chance. And shortly before sleeping no good idea either.

Despite that, I got some great audios from authors I love, and because of them and the ones I own for ages, I am signing up to try this challenge again and see what happens.
