5 Reasons Audiobooks Rule

Aug 17, 2007
1) There are many different formats for you to enjoy your audiobooks and thus can be listened to in many different ways, and on many devices. After downloading off of the Internet, audiobooks can be played on computers, then can be burned to a disc, and can be loaded to an iPod, Zune or mp3 player.

2) I am now able to take in many more books per month compared to when I only read my books because the amount of time I have to sit down and read written books is very limited. Before discovering audiobooks, I was able to squeeze in about 2 books a month. I still do read about 1 per month, but now, I add another 2-5 audiobooks that I listen to on my iPod or while I drive on my cars CD player.

3) I am far more productive with my downtime due to audiobooks. One way that I am now more productive is better using my time on the commute to work. I rarely listen to mindless radio anymore; instead, I now listen to an audio book. I am big on customer service at my job and I am able to learn a log from business and relationship audiobooks. Ever since I started listening to these kinds of audiobooks on my drive to work, my productivity has gone up and my boss has really appreciated and implemented many of the ideas that I have picked up on my commute.

4) There is a former colleague of mine who was an avid reader who recently had a stroke. He is extremely pleased to have discovered the joy of audiobooks for himself. He can now keep his brain stimulated and can learn new things with out having to pick up a book and read it. His vision has been blurry so it is difficult for him to stay focused on the printed words of books. The visually impaired also greatly benefit from listening to audio books. This way, they do not have to strain their eyes over the tiny printed words, instead, all they have to do is hit play and sit back and listen.

5) One thing I really love about audio books is that you no longer have to kiss your book good bye when you loan it out to a friend. I am sure that this has happened to everyone, after loaning out your book, you never see it again. Now it is no big deal, you can easily burn someone an audiobook on CD and not have to worry about getting it back. You could also easily load your audiobook to a friend's iPod or Zune.

In the past, you could purchase your audiobooks through catalogs or you could rent them from the library as books on tape. Thanks to advances in technology, these books on tape are now books on CD.

Today, the best, fastest and easiest place to find audiobooks is on the Internet. You can chose from many categories or genres which range from biographies, best sellers, juvenile, old time radio, thrillers, comedies, learn a foreign language, and religious titles.

You can download your audiobooks in both their abridged or unabridged form. It does not take long to download your audiobook either, anywhere from seconds to just a few minutes for the longest titles. If you are on a slow dial up modem, you can choose the smallest file which is still in surprisingly excellent quality. Virtually every title to choose from comes with a free sample download so that you can listen to the narrator before deciding to make the purchase.

I am confident that you will love audiobooks to if you have not already discovered them for all of the preceding reasons. You will free up a ton of time by listening to your audiobooks while you commute, walk the dog, or work around the house which really is priceless. I encourage you to check out how easy and affordable it is to download your audiobooks today.
