2009 Audiobook Challenge

This is my reporting spot for the 2009 Audiobook Challenge - I recently started listening to audiobooks and so was very excited to find this challenge! The rules are pretty simple - just listen to 12 audiobooks over the course of the year. I spend a LOT of time driving children to and from activities and driving for work so this challenge should be one I can actually complete! Click on the title to go to the review.

Congratulations on finishing the Challenge! There are lots of good books in your list. I've read three of these: Night, The Book of the Dead, and When You are Engulfed in Flames.I can't say I "enjoyed" Night, but am glad I read it. It was a powerful reminder. We need to remember so this kind of thing doesn't continue to happen.

Flames was a very enjoyable read for me. I'm going to get another of his book soon.

I have read all the books Preston and Child have written together and enjoyed every one.
