Read with Your Eyes Closed: Why Audio Books are on the Rise

Busy lately?

Most of us are. In fact, we may be so busy we don't have time to read.

Now, I'm the first to admit that we have time for anything we CHOOSE to have time for, I'm also quite sure that our lives are busier than they were in the horse and buggy days - and that's with the use of all of the electronic advancements!

It's no wonder that audio books are on the rise. In fact, it shouldn't surprise you a bit that they are.

Do you have a Smartphone? Do you have a tablet? Do you spend those hours in the airport reading on your digital device?

When was the last time you vacationed? Did you listen to an audio book? Did your listen enhance your driving enjoyment?

Sure, you should never listen with your eyes closed while driving, but didn't the experience make the journey that much more pleasurable?

Well, did it?

What about listening to a book while cleaning your house? Exercising?

There is truly something to be said for closing your eyes and just sitting on the couch, listening to a book; listening to a voice tell a story made even more striking and memorable when voiced by a professional who knows when to pause...

If you've never listened to an audio book, perhaps now is the time to do so.

Why not start with this one? Hmmmmm.
