Jen over at Devourer of Books is hosting Audiobook Week (so cool!) and is having us all join in a discussion each day, regarding audiobooks. Today's question is a simple one: Why Audiobooks?
Well, I've been a voracious reader since around the age of 4 and have always had the age-old problem of so many books, so little time. Back in the college days, I was driving an hour to and from my school and started the Kathy Reichs forensic series on audio. It was my first venture into the world of audiobooks and I was completely hooked. That two hours in the car flew by, as I listened to Temperence Brennan and her team solve murders around the country. Those audiobooks solved my problem of not having any time to read, due to car time/homework/job/etc.
Now that I mainly focus on YA/Children's books to read and review, my audio choices are typically from adult authors...all those books that I want to read, but may not be reviewing for the blog. I listen mainly while working out, but also when out in the garden, doing those pesky household chores, cooking, and occasionally on our trips to NY. It's fantastic to be able to accomplish tasks and still get some reading done in the process. I also have at least one audiobook going, while reading three physical books. Keeps things interesting!
Head over and join the discussion, lots of great answers!
