I was recently asked why and what I like about audio books. I have to say there are many reasons why I like audio books. First and foremost is I drive a truck for a living and there isn’t much to do behind the wheel. I do talk to family and friends, but I get tired of the phone. Audio books provide a form of entertainment that simply make the hours fly by. I know I’m paying attention to what is going on in front of me, but audio books capture my attention so fully that I can’t believe how much time has gone by. Also since I don’t have the time that I would like to have to sit down and read, audio books provide that for me. Audio books can also entertain your children on long trips if you get books for kids. It keeps the car quiet and allows me to be relaxed and enjoy the trip. There are also so many authors published on audio books that it is easy to find your favorite author, and narrator, and simply enjoy what’s going on around you and still absorb a book. Now with the technology of some of the electronic devices, that read the book to you, along with audio books it has never been easier to take one or several of your books along without all the weight of lugging actual books around. You can clean, workout, or do any of your favorite activities while listening. Simply put in your earphones!
