Books On Audio: A Beginner’s Guide


Although the audio books craze has hit a number of people, there are still some who are not clear about this whole new form of reading books. Books on audio are the most comfortable, easiest, cheapest as well as the entertaining forms of reading. Here are answers to some of the aspects that most people are not clear about.

Firstly most people think that for listening an audio book they need to pay a huge amount. But this is not true as you can download audiobooks from the Internet and they are absolutely free. Most of the websites offer them free of cost in trial versions. But if you go for the newly released audio books, then they may charge some amount.

Secondly, people often get confused as to which one is a cheaper option– audio books on rent or buying audio books? Renting audio books is definitely a much better option as buying all the books can be quite heavy on your pocket. But if you are doing some sort of audio book collection or planning to run audio books club there is no point of question on what you should do. You should definitely go for original audio books in the later case.

Thirdly, some avid book lovers also face problem while selecting the best among downloadable audio books or audio ebook, books on tape or audio books on CD. Here downloaded audio books are considered the best as most of the new audio books that come nowadays are available in this format. While one should also remember that the largest collection of audio books are in CD Format. So the decision rests entirely on a person’s needs, whether he likes reading old books or the newly released ones.

Also, you can find the audio books in all the genres. Business audio books, children audio books, thrillers as audio books and inspirational audio books are all available.

Regarding the place where they can listen to audio books, speaking truly there is no boundaries. In fact there are only two words for this question- anywhere and anytime. All you need is a player. If it is equipped with unlimited power supply you can listen to them while cooking, exercising, cleaning the house, running, driving, walking, flying, commuting, before going to sleep, working and almost doing anything on the Earth.

Finally most people are of the view that domination of audio books among the book lovers will one day wipe away the traditional form of reading. While this is not true as many people still love the comfort and pleasure that they get by reading printed books. But books on audio can really improve reading habits of people in the long run.
