Lately, I’ve been hearing so many people talk about audiobooks, and how much they enjoy them. It seems as if they’re getting more attention lately, and of course that’s not a bad thing. In fact it’s a great thing, because it means more people are reading!
However, for me, I could never enjoy an audiobook. Why? Mainly because I could never focus on the story when listening to them. I tried to listen to three audiobooks, and within the first few chapters, I would try to remember what I heard, and it was like my mind was blank. I couldn’t remember anything that was said.
A lot of people talk about how they listen to audiobooks on there commute to school, or work, during breaks, cleaning, working out, whenever they have free time. I think that’s fantastic. In a way I’m jealous of people who are able to do that. I tried listening to an audiobook while cleaning, and I could not concentrate on the story at all. It ended up frustrating me to no end.
I’ve come to the conclusion that audiobooks are just not for me, and of course that’s okay. I wish they were though. While reading, I cant be doing anything else. I just have to focus on the story. That’s why I’ll be sticking with my physical and e-copies.
How do you feel about audiobooks? Do they not work for you? Do you love them? If so, what has been your favorite audiobook that you listened to?
