I will admit it. When I first started seeing advertisements for audible.com, my initial response was kind of snobbish. Is listening to a book the same as reading a book? If you listen to a book, instead of reading it, does that make you a bit lazy?
I decided to try it for a while and discovered that I really enjoy it. My favorite time to listen to books is when I am working. It helps keep me motivated and even seems to fuel my creativity.
Audio books are entertaining and educational. If you have not tried it, give it a chance.
