7 Reasons Why You Should Listen Audiobooks5 min read

I recently discovered audio books and just couldn’t help but notice many advantages of using them. Now mind you, I love a physical book as much as any bookworm but after getting an eye infection I had to find an alternative. I have noticed that many people don’t even consider listening to them and as much as I’m regretting not using that kind of format earlier I would love to enlighten my fellow reader benefits of using audiobooks and how much you guys are missing out! So, without further ado let me tell you why audiobooks rock.

1. THEY ARE PORTABLE:

❝BOOKS ARE A UNIQUELY PORTABLE MAGIC❞

-Stephen King-

They are portable like regular books but with more advantages, So you can get through more books like you can use them while you are driving, walking, running, brushing your teeth, getting ready or even during a workout session. I usually listen to them while doing chores, cleaning my closet etc.

2. SOURCE OF INSPIRATION:

Being a student myself, I know how to feel completing hundred of tasks at hand before the deadline, Things can get pretty heavy and it’s next to impossible to find any motivation to read but luckily many audio books like The Power of Meaning by Emily Esfahani Smith and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey can provide a great source of inspiration for future perspective.

3. BETTER PRONUNCIATION SKILLS:

It’s going to save you from the embarrassment of pronouncing a word (or God forbid a character’s name) incorrectly and enhance your listening skills and vocabulary simultaneously. e.g Isla “EYE-lah” and Les Miserables as “ley-mee-zey-ra-bluh”, Bet you didn’t know that either.

4. RELAXING AND FUN:

After a long day of looking at your smartphone, You can rest your eyes and let your imagination go wild by listening to a new fantasy series (I prefer Harry Potter and Percy Jackson and the Olympians series or any funny lighthearted book that I want to reread.) and its also great for those with poor eyesight. The human voice can be soothing and it sometimes quiets our racing thoughts.

5. SNEAK BOOKS AT NIGHT:This one is a winner for me, Sometimes a book is just so good that you just have to know what is going to happen next even its 3 in the morning! Audiobooks solved that for me.Lights out? No problem! I’ll be secretly enjoying my book while everybody is asleep and happily suffer in the morning.Real sneaky I know.

6. SAVE TIME USING AUDIOBOOKS!


Let’s be honest here, There are tons of book to read but we don’t have enough time or patience to complete a book from cover to cover, I know science don’t promote multitasking but think of how much information we can retain just by listening while doing work that does not require much focus and by changing the pace of book we can even complete the book at much faster rate.

In the end, It’s all a matter of preference some people are hardcore physical book lovers while other retain information better by auditory learning and as for someone who considers reading as a chore or reads slowly, I think it’s a great alternative for them. Those who don’t consider them as intellectual enough should reconsider their thought process because it’s same as reading just a little different which isn’t bad at all!

Happy Reading/Listening!

  1. Audiobooks are great but the feeling you get from reading the book physically is just unique. Also, I have found I remember stuff easily from the book when I see and read them. Maybe that’s just me..lol
