Frank’s question this week is:
Aside from those with physical limitations that would impair their ability to actually read, does listening to audio books count as actually reading in your mind? Why or why not?
Having never purchased or listened to an audio book, I can’t really say. However, I do remember occasional classes at junior school when a radio broadcast would be turned on and we would be ‘read to’, then the topic discussed.
I was never read a bedtime story as a child, but I did make up a couple for my nephews when they were small, so this was probably the nearest I got.
I know of a friend who listened to audio tapes in the car to learn a foreign language, and other friends who prefer audio books simply because they take up less space and they can listen to them practically anywhere.
For me though, I prefer to have a printed book in my hand.
