Book Blogger Hop July 15

 The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, it was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy @ the Ramblings of a coffee addict. . Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog. 

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.
