Audiobooks are my current obsession.
I have to admit with work, chores and exercise getting in the way of my reading time, it just seems inevitable that I’ll try it out. After all, libraries are now loaning audiobooks. And with the help of the Overdrive app, it’s pretty easy to download the audiobooks and return it before or once the loan period ends.
What can I say about audiobooks that I haven’t covered in an earlier article?
It’s convenient. I don’t need to think about saving actual space in my cramped room. I can listen to my favorite author’s stories (and in the case of some authors, their narration) while on the go which saves on time. Time I spend laying down or sitting down while turning the page of a physical book can be turned into time I can use to clean up, work, jog and travel while listening to a story.
Now I know that not a lot of people like audiobooks and don’t consider it reading. But personally, audiobooks have good and professional narrators whose interpretation of character nuances and voices actually make things more interesting in my opinion. In some cases, the narrators publishers get are also actors you see on tv or the movies, which makes it even more fun in my opinion.
Honestly, 21st century libraries are the best. They managed to find a way to lend audiobooks and ebooks. Unfortunately, the my local library doesn’t have enough audiobook titles to fill my obsession.
Hence, why I have turned to audiobook retailers. So if you are an audiobook enthusiast, here are some retailers I would recommend. They are by no means perfect but I’ve tried their services and each have their good points!Continue reading “Audiobook Retailers”
