Some people still love the traditional printed book, but over the 12 months we have spoken to lots of people who tell us they are consuming more and more audiobooks, so if you still aren’t sure if audiobooks are for you, we thought we’d put down the 5 top reason why those that are now enjoying audiobooks have made the switch….
Most people said they were able to learn better, or knew someone who had success in learning whilst using an audiobook. We have touched on this subject before with our blog Benefits of Audiobooks in Learning and it is one that seems to come up time and again. Seemingly one of the main advantages is that you can pace the information you consume.
Some people are better at multitasking than others, but none can deny that sometimes it can be very useful and effective. Audiobooks are great for that. You can listen while you’re cleaning the house, folding clothes, cooking or anything else that doesn’t require much focus. It’s especially effective when you’re commuting, who knew you could learn so much while stuck in traffic!
Just like listening to good music can uplift your spirits – so can audiobooks. Reading inspirational quotes and passages are great, but it doesn’t beat listening to a person that motivates you to do great things while you’re learning at the same time.
Some of the people I have spoken to say that certain types of books are better consumed over audio than over text and the main categories for this were, conceptual books and biographies.
On the flip side, some of the people I have spoken to say they would avoid listening to audiobooks that cover a lot of detail and require you to take a lot of notes, e.g. how to books – and that made perfect sense to me.
Audiobooks are unquestionably convenient. You can have them on your phone, tablet, computer and even in the car. This makes the content accessible and you can easily continue where you left off from last time. Some will say that only the quietest of places suit them when reading a printed book, but the same question asked as audiobooks often indicated that with audiobooks they found it much easier to pick it up and start listening too – regardless of where they were, how noisy it was & what time of day is was, so all in all……it’s just so convenient.
