Although “talking books” (aka audiobooks)have been around for decades, attitudes about and practices among readers vary widely.
Some of us occasionally – or even frequently – “listen” to some books while choosing to read others with our eyeballs. Other readers can’t even imagine enjoying earphone-enabled “reading,” much less making it a habit.
One reader, a Dickens devotee, decided to try an experiment to test out the durability of her own preference for getting her fiction via the printed word. Earlier this month, she posted her interesting (and well-written) report to the Chronicle of Higher Education.
What about you? Do you listen to books as well as read them? If so, we invite you to share your “book listening” patterns – or “conversion expereiences” with your fellow blog-readers.
