This weeks question is: If you are listening to an audiobook, do you follow along with the print version? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

I don’t listen to audiobooks so I don’t really have an answer to this one. 😃

However………,,,,,,,,,,,,,…. if I did listen to audiobooks, I suspect that it would be when I was doing something else such as walking or driving so I can’t imagine that I would ever follow along with the print version. I can see that it would be nice to have the print version too so that you could swap between the two.

This weeks question is:  Do you listen to audiobooks? If so, do you prefer listening instead of reading? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews)

I don’t listen to audio books at all. I read either physical books or ebooks and it’s a relaxation activity for me.

I know a lot of people listen to audio books while they are driving or exercising but I will generally listen to music at those times instead.

One thing that puts me off audiobooks is how long they are. The library sent me an audiobook by mistake once and I think it was something like 10 hours long.

I do like the idea of having the story read to me and I’ve heard great things about some audio versions so it might well be something that I will come to at some point.

This weeks question is:  Do you think listening to an audiobook instead of reading the print version makes it more difficult to write a review? Submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews.

This is easy to answer. I have no idea as I have never read an audio book. I know a lot of people listen to them as they exercise or drive but I tend to listen to music instead at those times. I received an audio book by mistake from the library and couldn’t believe how long it was so I’ve never been tempted. Maybe in the future.

I imagine that it might be harder as it might be more difficult to refer back to the book to check points. Ebooks are harder to review than physical ones for this reason.
