More than 40 independent bookstores participated in our first ever, Summer Listening Challenge.
Each participant was asked to log 20 hours of listening and tell us which bookstore they supported and what activities they did while listening. You can find the summary of results in the graphic below.
From booksellers to toddlers, and meditation to metalsmithing, there is an audiobook for everyone and no limit on the activities that can be accomplished while listening! But more importantly, with each listen through Libro.fm customers supported their local bookstore and their local community. Enough from us, hear what our finishers had to say after listening to more than 1,660 hours of audiobooks.
