Why Listen to Audio Books When You Have
There are a number of other advantages that audio books come
with when compared to your regular paperback.
Audio Books Are Extremely Mobile:
Audio books are available in the form of DVDs, CDs, MP3, WAV
and other formats that can easily be carried around in your audio
or music player. This makes audio books extremely easy to carry
around. Since you do not have to read or hold the audio book like
a regular book, you can peruse an audio book while driving to and
from work, jogging, during your workouts or while doing household
Audio Books are Instant:
When you want to read a regular book, you generally have to take
time out to either get it from the library or buy it. In case you
buy or rent online, you will still need to wait till the book gets
shipped. Audiobooks, on the other hand, can be downloaded instantly
from a large number of internet sites and bookshops offering audio
book downloads. You just have to decide which book you want to read,
and you have it on your hard disk within minutes.
Audio Books are Cheap:
There are a number of reputable sites that provide audio books
online in the form of rentals and downloads. Some audio book libraries
will let you download an unlimited number of online audio books
for as little as $15. Even if you are not a voracious reader, you
can get audio books for as less as $2 or $3 per download from online
audio book libraries. If you are a classic lover, then you can get
almost all your audiobooks free, since audiobook versions of most
classics online are absolutely free.
Audio Books are Short and Sweet:
Most audio book downloads are available in MP3 formats and even
a regular, low on memory player can easily stack up on a number
of MP3 books. With a good MP3 player, you can start your reading
from the last point that you stopped your player at. MP3 audiobooks
also work where regular books do not. For example, they give your
kids company when you are not around to read them their favorite
bed time story, and are a handy companion to have around on dark
camping nights and long road trips. Now isn’t that really sweet
Audiobooks are Available in Every Genre:
With the growing popularity of audio books, you can now find
audio book versions of every popular book in print. Fantasy fans
can download the full series of David Eddings audio books, Christine
Feehan audio books and the Harry Potter and Eragon series. Romance
lovers can get audio book versions of Norah Roberts, Danielle Steele
and Barbara Taylor Bradford novels and thriller lovers can get just
about every author and every book in an MP3 audiobook format.
Now here are some suggestions on when to enjoy an audio
1. In bed. Sometimes we feel unwell or off color
and may just want to spend the day or a few hours relaxing in bed;
or maybe we go to bed at night and simply want to lie till until
drifting naturally off to sleep.
This is a great time to listen to an audio book: You have no
bother with putting on the lights, holding the book, flipping through
the pages or the effort of reading the book itself. You just lie
there and relax while the entire book is read to you!
2. While doing household chores such as washing
the dishes, general cleaning, or even preparing a meal. Many of
us find these tasks somewhat tedious, certainly the chore of washing
This is a great time to listen to an audio book because your
hands are busy but your mind is receptive; instead of feeling bored
and fed up you can fill your mind with the pleasure of listening
to a book of your choice.
3. Gardening. Another mainly physical activity
when much of the time e.g., weeding, mowing grass etc. - we don't
have to tax our brains. You can also listen to audio books while
gardening and have the pleasure of your book along with the satisfaction
of getting the job done.
4. Exercising or jogging. Working out or simply
jogging leave your mind open but your hands, legs and even your
entire body busy. This is a great time to enjoy an audio book.
A lot of us tend to exercise, whether for minutes or even hours
while their minds do nothing. But listening to an audio book during
this time will ensure you don't waste those periods of time.
Talk about killing 2 birds with one stone - exercising your body
and mind at the same time!
5. Commuting. This may be in your car or the
bus or train ride to work. Many people lose a great deal of time
doing nothing while commuting to and from their jobs - and the sheer
boredom of it can make them feel tired and irritable.
Why not use that time to listen to an audio book, especially
one that develops your mind and/or improves your professional and
business skills? Listening to an audio book that improves your skills
may help you develop career; more useful than simply sitting there
or even listening to music.
6. During air travel. You may not believe it,
but there are people who spend more time in the air (or waiting
in airport s!) than on the road. As with more traditional commuting,
this can be wasted and frustrating time which can be put to good
If you are a regular or even an occasional air traveler, consider
the enormous benefits you would get listening to audio books, especially
those that can improve your academic or work related skills; or
simply listening to a favorite novel. Great distraction for the
kids too if they're travelling with you...
