For me, I primarily read books on my Kobo but I do occasionally listen to audiobooks, depending on the narrator. For example, I really love Andy Serkis' narration of The Lord of the Rings and Stephen Fry's narration of Harry Potter.
Was the only way I got any reading done for ten years…. Anyhow, I run a bookstore so, as you’d expect, paper all the way hereI absolutely read books on the toilet. No shame in it. With 3 young ones running loose around the house, sometimes its the only peace and quiet us parents can get.
You make an excellent point. I've tried to read non-fiction on both Kindle and audiobooks, but it is hard to work with. I tend to use non-fiction more as reference and am more likely to skim and skip around than read straight through. This is harder with the electronic mediums.I voted for physical books, but it's more complicated. I tend to buy new fiction as e-books, and history (usually) in physical format. But I've also started listening to a lot of podcast material (history).
Here's a tip with Audible. Sign up for the subscription. You get 30 day and usually 2 or 3 credits free. Claim the credits (they're yours to keep) and then cancel the subscription. Listen to your books. By then you can repeat the process. I've been doing this for a few years without spending a penny on audio books.I have been listening to audio books recently as its a wonderful way to spend two hours on my cycle home. I don't want to subscribe though and i'm finding them a bit scarce on Amazon as they're really trying to push "Audible". I only listen to books that i've read before. No new ones.
