The Book Blogger Hop is a weekly book meme hosted by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. Each week, there is a new prompt for writers and bloggers alike. This week’s question, submitted by Vicki Lee,
Do you believe audio books are the future and why do believe?
Absolutely not! Why? Because I cannot get into them! There are always going to be folks that cannot concentrate on something that is purely audio. Plus, there’s the appeal of reading things yourself, in your own head, where you can make up the voices and set the tempo. With an audiobook, you only get the experience that is as good as the one reading it. There’s no skimming, or quick reading. I simply cannot see audio books being the next evolution of reading to the point that it becomes the mainstream. I mean, we still have people fighting for physical books over ebooks and ereaders!
What do you think? Am I simply wrong and archaic?
