If You Haven't Listened To Audio Books Here Are Some Reasons Why You Should

Aug 17, 2007
As a small child we learn to read. With this new found ability, we read everything that we see. For some of us, this joy of reading sticks with us throughout our lives. As we get older, we become busier and have less time to read. When we become older yet, our lives start to slow down but then people may have vision problems that restrict their ability to read. Several years ago there was a solution to this, and it has become quiet popular. The solution was books on tape. What a wonderful idea.

These books on tape could be played in your house whenever you wanted. You could clean your house while getting through several chapters of a book at the same time. If you had a cassette player in your car, you could listen to a book while you drove. As time went out, cassettes became replaced by CDs, and now MP3 players. There are still tape players and books on tape, but now, you can get them in a variety of formats so no matter what, everyone should be able to listen to a book.

You can take your CD walkman or MP3 player and go on a walk, listening to your favorite book. The great thing is that these books on tape have become so popular that there is a huge variety for you to choose from. You can listen to a mystery book on your way to work. On your way home, you can listen to a drama, and on your walk in the evening, you can listen to a relaxing story or a love story before bed.

The nice thing about audio books is that you don't have to buy them. You can get them from your local library; you can rent them, or even join a book club where you swap books.

Audio books are a great way for using your downtime. When you just want to relax and the TV is too distracting or there is nothing on to watch. When sitting at the airport waiting for you plane to arrive. These are so easy just to put in your portable player and you can start and stop the book whenever you want with just a push of a button. Who says you can't read in the dark? Now you can. If you have never listened to an audio book before, I encourage you to go find your favorite author and try one out.

If you are not sure what type of book you would like, or if a certain book appeals to you or not, you can find sites on the internet that charge only by what you listen to. That way you get a sample of the book to help determine if it is one you would want to purchase. I think if you tried it once, you would really enjoy it.
