Hey guys! Today I am going to be talking about The Audiobook Problem. I saw this post saying that Audiobooks have begun to outsell print and I got majorly concerned! This is not going to be a long post but I hope to get my message through.
Now, what my point is that, I don’t get why people are buying audiobooks more than print! The whole joy of reading comes from having a physical possession of a copy of the book and being able to hold and hug it when you are reading it. Also, which reader does not like smelling the pages of a new book?! I know, I do!
I am a little shocked by this post that I saw because Audio Books are such a new thing and they have become so popular over the last few years! Even though I like listening to audiobooks as they help you multitask and do whatever you want to while kind of reading a book. Trust me, I have nothing against them, I actually like listening to them and have a couple myself, but I think we are losing the real meaning of reading a book !
I feel so bad because first we were introduced to e books and now this. It is like we are losing everything to technology. I am not saying that is a bad thing but I do feel that it has gone just a bit overboard! First, all the parents used to be so proud that their kid was off the laptop and iPad and was READING! But now, we are either listening to the book being played through headphones attached to our phones or reading it on an e reader!
I do LOVE E readers because they give me a chance to buy a lot of books at a cheap rate! But now, there are some books which have HUGE audiobook sales! WOW! I cant even…. I just wanted to say that I feel like the world is slowly losing the actual feeling of a floating sensation you get when you are reading a book! It is a magical experience, actually holding a book in your hand and stroking the pages softly while you read it! That magic is reducing and I, for one, am not ready to let go!
I adore giving my full attention to a book ad I know that when I give it my divided attention, I am not allowing the book to blow me away. I feel like we should all give every book a fair chance to be read instead of listened to!
These are strictly only my views on the topic and I would not like any of my thoughts to influence what you think! I respect all of your opinions and don’t ever let anyone change them!
All righty,guys! That is it for my post today… I hoped you enjoyed it, I hope you have a great day! Comment down below your thoughts on this change in the book world and I will have another post up soon so I will see you then! Goodbye!
