AudioBook Sales Are Booming

Mar 11, 2008
Audiobooks aren't just for long trips anymore. The market has taken off since the 1980s when the publishing industry began to record its best sellers. Audiobook sales have steadily increased ever since that time.

Instead of the author reading their own book, more and more publishers are using professional speakers to voice audiobooks and this is one of the reasons for the increase in sales. Also the fact you can download an audiobook and put it on your ipod has also attracted more people to use audiobooks.

The future looks bright for the audiobook industry with digital downloading capability and celebrities who take the time to promote a favorite book or author by placing their names on the jackets and their voices on the recordings.

The Internet has been especially helpful in causing audiobook sales to climb to the top of the charts. Web sites abound that offer audiobooks - some read by fans rather than professionals.

Since their inception, children's audiobooks have been instrumental in teaching children to read. Now, these same children have grown up and are using audiobooks in college. It's a way to increase the number of books they read on a subject and also increases their comprehension of the books.

For people who have trouble with their sight audiobooks have always been a great companion and increasingly magazines are now providing their publications in audio format which will benefit more people.

The fact that you can carry around audiobooks and your favourite music on an ipod means that they are the, must have, accessory that everyone wants. They make great christmas and birthday presents.

Rather than wasting time while you are waiting for a train or sitting on a bus you can use your ipod to improve your French verbs or learn more about motivating your employees. The variety is endless and you can listen anywhere.

One of the most popular audiobook topics is that of self improvement. You can increase your skill level by listening when it would be very difficult to read the same book due to the situation you were in, such as driving.

Audiobooks are really a great time saver, when we have to do so many things in a short space of time they enable us to learn a new skill while undertaking another task such as preparing a meal or driving. A lot of people now view them as indispensible and their popularity is sure to increase.
