I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Whisper Stories in My Ear Audiobook Challenge

Last year I participated in the Audiobook reading challenge hosted by Royal Reviews. That challenge is being hosted this year by another blogger but I decided I would try a different audio challenge. The draw of this one is that it requires I write a review of the audio which I have been trying to do more of for awhile.

The Whisper Stories in My Ear 2011 Audiobook Challenge is hosted by Bewitched Bookworms. The challenge runs the length of 2011.

The general goal of this challenge is to read at least 12 audiobooks in the course of the year (to be eligible for the grand prize!) and you have to post a review of the audiobook (it can be on your blog or Goodreads etc). When you post your review you have to say that you listened to the audiobook version of the book, who was the narrator, the length of time the audiobook ran and your separate rating/impression for the audiobook (how you liked the narration of the story beyond what you thought of the story itself).

For my audiobooks that are historical fiction – the reviews will be posted on my blog. For audiobooks that are not h-f they will be posted on my Goodreads account.

Here are the books that I read:

1. Hamlet by William Shakespeare
2. The Fifth of March by Ann Rinaldi
3. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
4. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian by C. S. Lewis
5. Picture Perfect by Jodi Picoult
6. The Circus Fire by Stewart O'Nan
7. New York by Edward Rutherfurd
8. Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
9. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
10. The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin
11. Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse
12. A Perfect Union by Gabrielle Allgor
