“Why I Hate Audiobooks”

Tim Patrick, aka The Well-Read Man, explains why he prefers putting books into his brain via his eyeballs than via his eardrums.

Incidentally, The Well-Read Man’s raison d’etre is Tim’s determination to begin, on July 1, 2011, a year-long project of reading (vs. listening to) Fifty of the Most Important Books Ever Published – and to tell us about it/them. He’s spending his time before July winnowing down to a final 50 the 1,000+ titles that one authority or the other has decreed as Extremely Important. For those of you who’d like to follow along with Tim’s progress on this commendable project, we’ve added a link to The Well-Read Man to the blogroll of the Atlanta Booklover’s Blog.
