What do think of audio books? I just got word that THE MEMORY HOUSE, which is still available, will not only be released next spring in mass market paperback form, but it will also be made into an audio book. In times past an audiobook was called books on tape and was mostly used by the visually impaired and primarily purchased by libraries. Most books were never transferred to that form. But as you know, times have changed, the digital revolution has occurred, and, along with ebooks, more and more books are being made into audio files. So it was pretty exciting to learn that THE MEMORY HOUSE will be an audiobook.
Then I woke up and realized I have never listened to an audiobook. Even though I have the Bible on tape, CD and on my iPad, I rarely access it through that venue. This begs the question, how many of you have ever actually listened to an audiobook, particularly a fiction audiobook? If you have, when and where do you prefer to listen? If you haven't ever owned an audiobook, does the idea interest you at all? Do you think you would ever buy one? Tell me what you think.
