FOR READERS/WRITERS: Why Do You Like Audio Books?


Today’s reader/writer topic comes from QSFer Eric Alan Westfall:

With a theatre background I certainly don’t want to deprive voice-actors of income, but I’ve never understood the attraction/value of an audio book, except for the visually impaired, or someone driving long distances where holding a book isn’t possible.

I was given an audio version of a book that’s 8 hours long. I can read it myself in probably 3 hours. So why would I sit somewhere for another 5 hours, to accomplish the same goal? Why would anyone?

And given the probable cost of the audio version, do those who self-publish make a profit often enough to make the initial out-of-pocket cash expenditure financially worthwhile?

This particular inquiring mind truly wants to know. Want to edify and educate me??
