I have been listening to audio books in one form or another since I was very young because I was born blind. I do read Braille, but have always preferred listening to most books. Growing up, I got books on tape from various libraries, but if I wanted to buy audio books to own, they were usually abridged. Now thanks to sites like audible, I can now own books, and I think at last check I have 997 since 2009. Might I also say, that you have a great narrator performing your novels. I especially like how he does various American accents.
I love to listen to Audiobooks when I am driving. I especially like to listen when I can read along with a good book, like Kindle. I also use a sleep timer to listen to Audiobooks while I am going to sleep.
I ONLY LISTEN TO UNABRIDGED AUDIOBOOKS.
The best audiobooks are narrated by at least 2 people. A different person should narrate each main character. When it is only 1 narrator for all parts it is confusing, I often have to go back and figure out which character was actually speaking. This is especially true when characters talk to themselves a lot. So sometimes you say, "Wait, they said, "WHAT?" And that is when I have to backup to check and verifying who said what.
I also really like when I buy a book thru Kindle, if there is an Audiblebook available I can then buy it for a reduced price, sometimes as low $0.99 cents.
At first I didn't think I would enjoy them,so I lost out on a lot of audiobooks. Once I took a chance on listening to them, I absolutely love them.
I almost exclusively listen to audio books these days, since my eye sight is failing me. I usually listen 2-4 hours a day, more on thd weekends.
I really enjoy audio books. Since I started working from home, I've listened more. I find for me though that I really need to like the narrator to enjoy the book. Sometimes I know it's a great book because I've read it before but the narrator spoils it. For me personally,I have yet to find a narrator that rivals Michael Dean.
I LOVE audio. I listen while I am doing other things usually walking or driving but with the restrictions of late I listen doing jigsaw puzzles or iPad games.....headphones are essential????????????
