Why Downloadable Audio Books Give You The Most Value
Audio books, today, are not just recordings of people reading books. They are much more. With music and sometimes sound effects, and readers' voice inflexions, a well made audio book is a priceless performance. A movie for the mind, if you will.
Most people agree that well-developed minds prefer reading to watching movies or TV. The sight impaired as well as people with reading difficulties can develop their minds as much as people with perfect vision. But how can they attain the same information that book-readers get? The best alternative is the audio book.
There is generally no reason why you can't learn as much from an audio book as from a regular reading book. Many people claim to gain more from audio books. Perhaps this is because we like to hear stories. We like the feeling of someone talking to us.
Audio books are increasing in popularity not only because they provide an alterative to TV and movies, they also can be listened to in places where people do not bring their TVs. Joggers and exercisers listen to audio books while they are doing exercise. Other people listen to audio books while doing houshold chores. And many people have found the advantage of having audio books in their cars when they drive.
So, why specifically audio books online?
Until recently, when you wanted an audio book, you had to buy it or order it from a directory. And you'd have to wait until your cassette or cd arrived. With online audio books, you can download the book right away. With mp3 audio books, you can download them directly to your mp3 player. Otherwise, you can always download an audiobook to your own desktop, and burn it to a cd if you wish. Downloadable audio books online have made the process of getting audio books much easier and faster for everyone.
Another advantage is the price of downloadable audio books. When you download, you save the publishers money, because they don't have to burn a CD, and they don't have to ship. They pass the savings to you, and often you can find downloadable audio books costing less than half that of "on the shelf audio books."
The many and varied uses of audio books are endless. With ipods and little mp3 players, you can listen to audio books just about anywhere you go, and just about anytime you feel like it. Learn a language as you drive to work. Or do a guided meditation during your lunch break. Downloadable audio books bring you the greatest informational, educational, and entertainment value for your buck.
