Sunday Confessions Oct. 2, 2011

Sunday Confessions is back after a summer long hiatus. This is a weekly meme started by yours truly as a way to get to share a bit about myself and also learn more about you. Sometimes its about books and book related topics and sometimes it's not. This is all in good fun and I would love it if you would participate.

Today's topic is on audio books. Over the past year I have really fallen in love with audio books.
 I mostly listen to audio books while cleaning around the house. It turns an undesirable chore into something more pleasant. I also like to listen to audio books with my kids. I was a little surprised at home much my kids enjoy these books. However I know some people view listening to books on audio as cheating because you're not technically reading the book. My view is it's not cheating. You're still experiencing the writers words as they're written, you're just using another one of your senses. I highly recommend audio books. If you've never tried audio books, I suggest you check out your local library. Chances are they have a good selection. 

So what about you? Are you for or against audio books?


  1. I'm definitely FOR audiobooks! I love listening to them on my commute, while working out, while cleaning, or while getting ready for work in the morning. It really helps the time pass and I can get through a lot of books that way! Plus I think some books are even better in audio format - especially if they are read by a fabulous narrator or the authors themselves. :)

  2. I agree! Sometimes I get so busy the only time I have to 'read' a book is if I listen to it on audio. I loved listening to Harry Potter on audio. Jim Dale is a fantastic reader.
