I listen to a lot of audio books. My eyesight has deteriorated in the last several years and they have become my primary source of "reading." It's been an adjustment for me because I have had to change reading habits that have developed during the previous 60+ years and replace them with new ones.
This has not always been a bad thing. At first I had to get a firm grip on my wandering attention span and teach it to focus. Becoming adjusted to having a book read to me instead of allowing my eyes to skip merrily along bouncing from one sentence or paragraph to the next was at first the hardest thing for me to do. Listening I discovered was entirely different from reading. I was being forced to go at the reader's pace, hearing every detail and often, if the reader was good enough, absorbing every nuance. Things that I had skimmed over in my headlong race to the finish.
And because I have a very inquiring mind I began to wonder who these readers were? It seems to me that audio books are becoming more and more popular. There certainly are more of them available than there used to be. I can even download them electronically from my library! How cool is that?
