    I’m in this challenge. Hope J Kaye gets lots of participants. Now I’m off to see your lists.

    I’m actually a huge audiobook fan, and got very much into it in 2008. I listened to 55! So I can join the challenge and try to beat my previous record. I’m interested to see your lists. Here are some of my suggestions from what I read in 2008:
    -Artemis Fowl (series is MUCH better on audio)
    -Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963
    -Founding Mothers
    -A Single Shard
    -Life of Pi
    -Freak the Mighty
    -A Northern Light
    -Dream When You’re Feeling Blue
    -A Thousand Splendid Suns
    -The Hannah Swenson series

    I’m currently listening to “Al Capone Does My Shirts” and am loving it!

    Wow, Heidi! You are a true audiobook addict 😉 Great list of titles – and Al Capone is on my personal all-time top audiobooks list.

    I am in on the challenge as well. I have listened to 18 so far this year, and am still going strong. I have created the list in my Audio Pod Library Favorites page and, if you visit my Bookmarks page, you can see which ones I currently have open and how far I have got through them. ( Feel free to visit.

    From what I have listened to this year, I would have to say that the series of 4 Bloody Jack audiobooks are the best read. (‘Bloody Jack’, ‘Curse of the Blue Tattoo’, ‘In The Belly of the Bloodhound’, and ‘Under the Jolly Roger’) I think one of them has previously won an Audie Award, and another is nominated this year.
