Hey y’all! I thought this would be fun and I really need some help with this. I’ve been wanting to join Audible for a while now, but I was never sure if it was worth the money or not. Then there’s also the whole debate about if audiobooks truly count as reading. I figured that maybe y’all could help me out with this.
- Do you have Audible or an audibook app?
- Do you consider audiobooks as real books?
- Do you think Audible is worth the money?
- Do you like audiobooks?
Those are some questions I have for y’all! Comment below please!
I have one app that has audiobooks on it but they’re classics and only classics. It’s not too bad of an app, but I wouldn’t mind listening to some other audiobooks. I’ve always been unsure about audible though. I’ve always questioned if I would actually use it and enjoy it or if it would be a waste of money to me. It’s something I would like to try and I know they have the free trials and the canceling at any time, but I don’t want to sign up for it just to cancel or just for the free trial. If I’m signing up for it I want to actually enjoy it and use it.
There’s also the whole question about if listening to audiobooks counts as reading a book. I know this is a debate among the book community so I would love y’all’s opinions. I personally think that it counts as reading a book. I know you’re just listening, but you also have to pay attention and process the words just like you do with a physical book. And just like a physical book if you’re not paying attention and your mind wanders than you’re mindlessly reading or in the case of audiobooks you’re mindlessly listening. So, I guess it doesn’t matter if others don’t think it’s actually reading as long as I do. I would still love to hear y’all’s opinions though.
I’ve really been thinking about it lately because I think that getting Audible and having books to listen to while I work or get ready would be very helpful and great for my reading goals. I also think it would help to have when I’m in a slump and don’t feel like picking up a book.
Comment below your thoughts!! And have a great day everyone! ❤
