I can't get into audiobooks.
I've tried listening to a few, and I just can not ever make it for more than a few minutes.
Furthermore, when someone tells me they've read such-and-such book and then I find out they actually just listened to it via audiobook, I feel as if they have lied to me.
I don't think there's anything wrong with audiobooks, and I think they're a wonderful way for people to explore literature.
They're just not my personal cup of tea, and I appreciate it when people differentiate between reading a physical book and listening to an audiobook.
I'm not sure why that difference is important to me, but I don't think it's too much to ask.
And since we're on the subject, if you do enjoy listening to audiobooks, I've had several people recommend LibriVox to me so I'll just pass that right along. It's an extensive collection of free audiobooks read by volunteers. So if you're into that or you've been wanting to expand your knowledge of classic literature, but you're not into reading physical books, this is a great resource for you.
And as a bonus, Haley from Carrots for Michaelmas wrote this post a couple years ago recommending her favorite readers on LibriVox. So there's that.
Do you like audiobooks?
Is there anything that people expect you to like based on your interests, but you actually just aren't into it?
