  1. Looks like you are right on track for most of your challenges. I like the visual showing your progress, for each challenge. I’m a big fan of audiobooks too!

      I love audiobooks! My commute can sometimes be 2 hours, so it is a great time to listen to audiobooks. Thanks Cori!

      This year I wanted to read books from my TBR and so far it is going good. But there are so many I want to read and need more time in the day to do so lol. Thanks Sam!

      Thanks Mary! I like how Goodreads tells us if we are on track for the year. It really helps to know if I need to read faster lol.
