Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

Audiobook Reading Challenge 2015 - 2016

Audiobook Reading Challenge 2015 - 2016

Being a busy farmer spending a lot of time in the John Deere, from early morning till often quite late, I don't have the luxury of extra time for reading. It's not that I can't read at all, but we SF/F/H afficionados usually are obsessive about reading and it's this obsession that is now seriously curtailed by my farming activities. Fortunately the John Deere has a cabin with air-conditioner and a stereo system. Hence much of my chosen reading is done... well... eh... through listening.

Of course, having an uncle in the Netherlands that is equally obsessive about our genre, helps. As it is, getting hold of SF/F/H reading material in Namibia is hard, and audiobooks even harder, but the uncle shares through Dropbox and I'm now rarely without listening options.

I'm confident that this is also the case with many others, spending time commuting, or in the gym, or just driving long distances, all of which likely interfere with reading hardcopy text. This challenge is for you too.

It is straightforward. Listen to anything genre related and review not only the story, but also the narration. And if not, well, just have fun.
