Talking audiobooks with Diana Lesire Brandmeyer

This week I’m a guest over at Diana Lesire Brandmeyer’s blog talking on the subject of audiobooks…

Three reasons why audiobooks are awesome

The rise of the e-book over the past few years has sparked some fun discussions about the various merits of ‘tree’ versus ‘e’… But there’s a third format that doesn’t seem to get all that much airtime – the audiobook. I constantly hear people say how they need to ‘read’ a book, and can’t absorb the words or the story when they are forced to listen. While I daresay this is true for some people – we’re all wired differently after all – I’m willing to bet a large number have never actually tried listening to an audiobook. I’m here to tell you they’re awesome!

To hear my three reasons you’ll have to click on over!


  1. It’s true, I’ve never listened to an audiobook, I sometimes wish I took more long journeys and had the means to listen to them. I love the kindle my Aunt gave me for Christmas, it complements computer technology, but have to admit I am struggling as to how I would listen to an audio with no CD player, no ipod, I better get over and read your post and see if it’s possible.


  2. Lovely to hear from you, Claire. But yes, I rather think a CD or MP3 player is a pre-requisite these days, especially if you don’t have long car trips.

    And kindles are indeed awesome!!

    I hope you enjoyed the full post…


I'd love to hear from you...
