There's a time and place for audiobooks

I should start off this article by saying that I firmly believe that books are books regardless of format, including e-books, audiobooks and print. If it has the same words (read: not abridged), it has the same meaning. I love listening to audiobooks on my drive to and from work and while doing chores around the house – I get a lot more reading accomplished that way than I might otherwise.

There are several situations that are perfect for getting lost in a good audiobook. Next time you find yourself in one, grab some earbuds and give it a try!
