I am very tired after my nonstop weekend so here’s a pretty quick post about why I love audiobooks (because I WILL win one of Jen’s prizes :P).
I discovered audiobooks late. It really wasn’t until this year that I really got into them. Prior to this year, I had an internal debate about whether audiobooks “count” and whether I get the same thing out of them. I definitely think they count now, but I don’t think you get the exact same thing out of print and audio. And that’s not a bad thing – it’s just a different type of reading experience.
But the thing that sold me on audio? I can read SO MANY more books!
I can read when I am
- getting ready in the morning;
- working out;
- not feeling well;
- and so many more places I’m sure.
There are millions of books in the world and I want to read as many of them as I can. Audiobooks allow me to maximize my reading time. There are other things I love about audio, but this is THE reason I read them. And yes, it counts as reading.
If you heart audiobooks as much as I do, you should definitely head over to Jen of Devourer of Books’ blog for Audiobook Week.
And now I am off to bed. And yes it is 8:30.
