Audio Books - Yes or No?

A few weeks ago I shared a list of books that are suggested to read this year.  That was on May 13 and I have yet to pick up any of those books on the list.  I really want to read more but I find myself not really finding the time.  My excuses are being tired and not wanting to stay up too late if I would really get engrossed in one of the books.  

 So, I'm considering an audio book.   And I'm curious...have you ever listened to book on tape/cd/other device?  Back in my days as a case worker, when I was in the car more often than not, I picked up a Harry Potter book on cd to listen to.  I enjoyed it but at the same time, I feel like there is something satisfying about turning the pages of a book; hearing the words in your own way in your head and knowing when you are nearing the end and all the anticipation that comes with that.  

What are your thoughts?

  1. My husband works for an Audiobook company and I don't even utilize all his free resources! Isn't that funny? I'm thinking of giving it a try, too. Especially when we are in the car.
