    Anyone been listening to any Audiobooks recently?

    I’m not a big reader but I’m more than happy to listen to an audiobook. Just about to start Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Haven’t read the Harry Potter books since I was younger.

    Love my Audible subscription.

    I've never attempted a book, let alone an audiobook lol.. I think the last book I read was Biff and Kipper

    My brother recently started with audiobooks, like me, he's never really read a book in his life, but he watched "After" and "After We Collided" and wanted to know what happened next as I think he said there was another 2 books or so.. and he said he was frustrated that there was another love interest that plays a huge role in the books, but has very very little mention in the film. Though he said he wouldn't be able to follow the audiobook very well had he not have watched the film, as he's like me and had crap imagination, but at least when you've watched the film, he can picture the scenes, picture the character etc.

    Doubt I'd ever give it a go though tbh, I'll just wait for the films lmao

    I've never tried Audiobooks, but Podcasts make me zone out. I used to listen to one Podcast, but it's so hard for me, as I'm a visual person.

    I used to listen to audiobooks, they're convenient when you're on the go and have no time to read however I much prefer a book as I tend to lose concentration so end up reading the same paragraph twice just to know what's happening; a lot harder to do with an audiobook!

    In spite of my existent admiration to all of those who by any chance recorded a LOTR reading mp3, audiobooks are entirely dysfunctional and act as a full-time replacement to the physical books as badly as ebooks do!

    Obviously there is this potential productive glamour vibe on being the "in my Car bounding for the Gym at Lunchtime Listening to the Second Part of Hjelmslev's Prolegomena!!"kind in liquid times when the whole culture makes one to think they're a loser if they have the time in their agendas to open a book, but if we wanna get the whole intellectual growth stuff that one gets from reading, it is already know that it is strictly related to the way our brain processes ~printed~ words in the written form rather than solely their subject! Of course the whole audiobook idea came up with the straightforward premise of making reading accessible to blind people but, hello!, learning Braile is so much fun and useful

    Since every single medium comes to life being a watered down version of the older medium it intends to kill, Podcasts still seem to me pretty much like "FM radio programs in mp3" with the terrible disadvantage of having no parameters of quality, then you don't always know where and how to start listening to stuff unless it is being made by someone you know? Of course, this one, for when the "in my Car bounding for the Gym at Lunchtime Listening to the Second Part of Hjelmslev's Prolegomena!!" type IS in the gym
