Audio books have been around for quit a while. There is a section at most book stores where you can find them and of course you can purchase them online through various websites like Amazon and Barnes & Nobel. I’ve borrowed many of them from the public library. I’m always reading more than one book at once and spend hours on the computer writing or reading so much that my eyes get tired. Listening to a book lets me enjoy reading even when my eyes are too tired to read from a printed book.
Audio books remind me of bed time stories. Sometimes I listen to them while I’m cleaning house or working in the yard and garden. Audio books can be downloaded from some libraries and many books that are classics can be down loaded for free to computers or MP3 players. One of the sites I use is Free Classic AudioBooks. They are great to keep you company and awake on road trips if you’re traveling alone or your companion is asleep during the drive. They are enjoyable and are a great way for people with vision problems or who have lost their sight to continue reading.
I’d love to hear how you feel about audio books. Leave a comment.
