  • audiobook-challenge-2017The Audiobook Challenge is back for 2017!

    Join Hot Listens and our new co-host Caffeinated Book Reviewer for the 5th year of great audio books.

    Audiobooks are great for those times you want to read but can’t for some reason like driving, doing chores, working out, or if you’re one of the lucky ones like me, listen to them at work.

    I hope all those new and old junkies can join us once again for The 2017 Audiobook Challenge.

    Listening has never been better!  Thanks to the continued popularity of Audiobooks just about everything is being published on audio…YAY!

    We will hold 2 updates with giveaways. First update will be June 30th, 2017 and the final update will be Dec 15, 2017

    There has never been a better time for reading with our ears 🙂

IMG_0075Hi Friends! It’s that time of year again where the resolutions role out and all of us with our best intentions step forward!

This year besides focusing on TBR physical books, which I was successful with last year, I will be focusing on those old old old ARC books. These are all digital, since 2013 or so. I’m anxious to go back into the archive and clear some of them out! Read More

IMG_0091It’s another year folks and that means another chance to get through my older physical books! I complain at the beginning of every year that I want less clutter and more space! So this year I’m going to be focusing on physical books. Last year I did a great job of cleaning out my book collection, purging the ones that I didn’t want to keep to make room for more open space!
