Today I wanted to touch on a subject that some people can get into a heated debate about. Audiobooks, is it actually reading?
I say that it IS reading. *Gasp* I know.
Okay, so maybe I am a bit biased because I consume most of my books through audio, but what is wrong with that. Nowadays if you go into an ebook, it will tell you based on your reading pace so far, how long it will take you to read a book. That's kinda cool, but audio books have been telling you since day one. That is a whole part of it. You know exactly how long the book is, and you can speed it up or slow it down based on how fast you are reading it.
But is it really reading if you can't see the words on the page?
Now here is where it can get tricky. I know for me personally I am a very visual person. If you describe a scene to me, I can see it in great detail. But my friend, on the other hand, can't, she sees colors instead. Maybe you fall into this category. She admits that it why she doesn't like to listen. But for us really visual people this is super cool.
So, this is my thoughts on the debate. Let me know what you think on:

Here we are as the shortest month comes to an end. I was quite busy at the begining of the month but I made time to read. I have found that my night ends around 10 pm, unless I am still trying to get things done, I normally shut down and crawl into my bed with a book. I try to read until like 11 or so and then head to sleep. I admit that this month I sort of ignored that rule.... (cough cough ACOMAF cough) and stayed up till closer to 2 in the morning. That made getting up the next day sort of difficult. Opps. So this month I read 4 books, and my average rating for the month was 3.85. So not a super high month for reading.

It is 1910, the age of flying machines is still in its infancy, and newspaper publisher Preston Whiteway is offering $50,000 for the first daring aviator to cross America in less than fifty days. He is even sponsoring one of the prime candidates-an intrepid woman named Josephine Frost-and that's where Bell, chief investigator for the Van Dorn Detective Agency, comes in.
Frost's violent-tempered husband has just killed her lover and tried to kill her, and he is bound to make another attempt. Bell has tangled with Harry Frost before; he knows that the man has made his millions leading gangs of thieves, murderers, and thugs in every city across the country. He also knows Frost won’t be after just his wife, but after Whiteway as well. And if Bell takes the case . . . Frost will be after him, too.

A Court of Mist and Fury (Book 2 ACOTAR) By Sarah J. Maas
Kindle Edition, 626 pages
Published May 3rd 2016 by Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Feyre survived Amarantha's clutches to return to the Spring Court—but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can't forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin's people.
Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms—and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future—and the future of a world cleaved in two.
With more than a million copies sold of her beloved Throne of Glass series, Sarah J. Maas's masterful storytelling brings this second book in her seductive and action-packed series to new heights.
