Do you listen to audiobooks?
Audiobooks have been a game-changer for me! I listened to my first audiobook in 2019 and haven’t stopped since. My new thing is listening to the audiobook while reading along with the physical book. I feel like I take in more information that way and it always makes for a fun reading experience.
If so, what makes a good audiobook? Is it the narrators or does it depend on the genre?
I think that it is a combination of this! I truly believe that a narrator can make or break an audiobook. There are audiobooks I had to stop listening to because of the narration and then there are books I never would have picked up if it weren’t for the narrator. For example, I will listen to anything that Bahni Turpin narrates. If I am looking for something to listen to, I will often search her name and see if she has anything new out!
I used to be pickier when it came to the genre of the audiobook I would listen to. These days, I am open to anything, but there are certain genres I will only read if I listen to them. Non-fiction and thrillers are good examples of this. There is something about these two genres that just lend themselves well to being listened to. Maybe I am an auditory learner and that is why I like to listen to my non-fiction?
