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:
