July 17th: What do you love about audiobooks?

Well, see my posts from June! Hehe, what do I NOT love about audiobooks? They are amazing.

- They are perfect when I now have a toddler. I have no time to sit and read, and if I do she is there taking my book.

- I feel that I connect on a whole other level with audio. They truly bring me into the story.

- A good narrator can make a meh book good and even great. Some are a joy listening too.

- Good for your eyes ;)

- Good for multitasking. Especially when out walking.

Conclusion: I love audiobooks and they fit my life perfectly at the moment.

  1. I can see why they would be prefect for you right now and I've noticed that you enjoy more of a variety in genres since you started audio books.

    but *sigh* I still can't do them. I can't multitask with them and I drift off when listening lol

  2. I do love a good audiobook, but find I must have something else to do while listening, like going for a walk or travelling. If I just try to sit back and listen, I usually doze off!

  5. I mostly just use audiobooks when I'm on a long driving trip - they definitely help keep me awake.

  8. Yep. Totally agree. You can keep your eyes on your toddler while you read. Brilliant isn’t it!? I totally agree about a good narrator, they suck you right into the story. I would have had to quit blogging if I hadn’t started listening because I just haven’t had the time to read like I used to.

    1. I manage one print a week, which would have meant, yes one review a week then :/ Thank you audio!

  9. Okay... I'm back. Can't really catch up, but trying to keep up now. AUDIOBOOKS ROCK. I love how a good narrator brings the story to life with great dialogue and powerful emotion.

  11. Yeah, I can't imagine my life without audiobooks now. If it weren't for audiobooks, I wouldn't get any books finished!

  14. There are so many good things to love about Audiobooks, but if I can't get into a printed book then I pick it up in audio and sometimes that will help.

  15. Audiobooks are wonderful for all the reasons you mentioned. So many great narrators that really add to a story and can make a good story great (a bad narrator can do the opposite too).
