Hour 12: Audiobooks Challenge

blog header 1

Oh hi there, readers. Have you stretched recently? Hydrated? Stepped outside to enjoy the (hopefully) summer sunshine?

Around this time, we’re doing a changing of the guard at 24in48 HQ, since Kerry and Kristen are in EST and Rachel is a few hours ahead! It’s the perfect time, because we’re one-fourth of the way through this thing.

We’re back to ring the challenge bell, interrupt your reading, and generally remind you that you’re doing THE GREATEST JOB and we’re SO HAPPY YOU’RE HERE WITH US.

This hour’s challenge is brought to you by our partner Hachette Audio, and we’re SO ready to talk audiobooks. Rachel is a longtime audiobook champion, Kerry is no slouch in that department, and both of them

conspired to turn nonfiction-on-audio-only Kristen into a fully fledged fiction audiobook reader.

For this challenge, we want to hear (see what we did there 🎧) about your audio reading life. Do you get your books from Audible, or Libro.fm? What does your audiobook library look like? Are there any audiobooks you’ve listened to over and over again? What’s your favorite audiobook?

You’ll be entered into our random drawing to win a copy of one of the following audio titles:

📘 Interment, 📕 Once & Future, 📗 Teeth in the Mist, 📙 Dear Evan Hansen

For our international participants, you’ll be entered to win a $15 gift card to your choice of Amazon, Book Depository, or Wordery.

Before you get back to the books, help us congratulate our winners from our Hour 6 Challenge!
