Advantages of Using Audio Books
Most publishers have noted and anticipated the rise of audio books and its outselling e-books and paper back because of the rise in the usage of iPods and MP3 players. We can well understand why audio books is becoming popular because this is one device in which you can have you story even without using your holds and even when the lights are turned off.
This device is very practical to the modern person who does multi tasking by taking away things that will impede or hinder them from doing so. Besides this is really the idea of bringing down various devices to a bare minimum.
There is a great advantage of listening to audio books to book lovers since you can listen to your favorite novels anywhere, anytime, even without light, even in total darkness, when you are strolling, traveling, doing errands, and your hands are not tied that they can do something else, and your eyes are not locked in the words that can strain them, since you can look at different sights while listening to your favorites stories.
A 10-Point Plan for Options (Without Being Overwhelmed)
There are already many individuals who have found interest and amusement in listening to audio books, preferring this over reading soft cover books and also because professional actors are used to read the stories together with background sounds and music to make it more dramatic. This adds a new dimension to the story than pure intellectual enrichment, emotional fulfillment and entertainment found in simply reading them.
The question of whether listening to audio books is really the same as reading them can easily be resolve by observing the two ways that our brain decodes something that exist. One is through seeing words and allowing our minds to decipher them into something cognizable, while the other is through sound or what we hear -which is also converted into something perceptible to us. By the time fifth grade is reached, the brain can decode both spoken or written words. When it comes to shifting values, there is a slight difference. This means that there is a need to develop a habit of decoding letters into sound. This is very similar to the adaptation of a second language. When your native language is English, then to say it in Spanish is to first cognitively base what you want to say in English and translate them in Spanish. Once you get used to it, it might sound spontaneous but the reality of decoding English to Spanish is still very much alive.
The predominance of audio books today with all of its vestiges surmount any form of enjoyment of a novel, although it is still a matter of getting into the roots of whether you can read better through your eyes or through your ears, which is really a remote issue.
