I love audiobooks because they allow me to multitask and sometimes consume a lot more information that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to read. The advantages are that we can listen to the audiobooks while driving or other quiet activities, such as baking, cooking, coloring, doing the laundry, etc. My voice is not worn out and is trying to read to them. And many of the audiobooks we like are read by professional actors, so they create different voices for different characters, which allows us to better imagine those characters.
Some people object that audiobooks destroy ancient literature. It is not useless to say that audiobooks have some additional benefits. Audiobooks are highly productive for students who want to become essay writers. Different streams of thought run through the mind of modern man.
It started because I wanted to “read” while traveling, but they are useful even when I’m home all day. I’ve read a lot of audiobooks over the past year and some have become my favorites. I started when I had a 35-mile journey and got tired of the similarity of radio. I had been taking audiobooks, 5 and 6 at a time, from the library for years.
Nowadays, reading is also not included in the busy schedule. It is also an undeniable fact that reading is necessary to be taught. Technology has reconciled conflict with the beginnings of audiobooks. Therefore; the audiobook industry is growing rapidly.
I work from home, and often when I’m doing something that doesn’t require too much concentration, I can put in an audiobook, which allows me to “read” a lot more than I could otherwise. As someone who has always been an avid reader but doesn’t have much free time to read traditional books, audiobooks have been a lifeline for me to keep up with reading. But even with all the benefits of audiobooks, they are not Books for all students. For others, the narrator’s voice can be irritating or using cassette or CD players can be cumbersome compared to the flexibility of the book. But most students will find that listening to well-told, quality literature is a transformative experience. However, a final factor can tip the balance between comprehension and retention firmly in favor of reading, and that’s the issue of multitasking.
If I get addicted to a great book, I take it with me and listen while I clean, cook, or try to accomplish something at home. My whole family listens to books as we travel, and that makes a huge difference in the quality of our trip. Sometimes we stay in the car listening after arriving at our destination. That’s why I usually listen to audiobooks by modern writers whose books don’t have very complex plots or nonfiction books. But I still feel like I might be missing something by listening to the book instead of reading it.
I don’t have kids now, but when I do, I can’t wait to listen to audiobooks with them over and over again! Another use of audiobooks is the ability to listen to books in new languages. I now practice Spanish by listening to the Divergent series and Fault in Our Sky and plan to listen to many of my favorite books in Spanish. It’s a great way to build bilingualism with yourself and with children! It’s great to read this article and see that others share my enthusiasm. Over the past 12 months, I’ve consumed a lot of audiobooks, averaging 2 per month.
I was always the best in my class with grades and reading (accelerated reader rewards were shaken!!!) However, as I became a busy millennial, it became increasingly difficult to read a physical book. One of the main setbacks of reading books was actually sitting: my back hurts when I sit for too long, but everything is uncomfortable for me. And going to bed and reading becomes tiring and uncomfortable after a while. However, with audiobooks I can walk, clean, cook, etc. and still enjoy a book! I’m a fan of podcasts, so audiobooks align with my love of oral/auditory stories.
