Audio-book or hard copy???
I can’t do audio books. I like reading myself.
Both…but audiobooks give me the opportunity to be more productive and to have a nice commute
And CD when you have to drive a lot
Hard copy. I don’t consider audio as reading a book. It’s just a completely different experience for me.
Both. I use both for different reasons.
Hard cover, & paper backs all the way.
Hard copy for sitting and being able to read. Audiobook for cleaning, shopping, driving and exercise.
Sometimes I do listen to audiobooks while reading a hardcopy
I do both but I prefer hard copy
I live in hard copy. ?
I love all platforms 🙂
Both have their place in my life!
I definitely prefer a hard copy, but I do have audio books.
I do both simultaneously
I prefer hard copies, but I have a 50 minute commute for work and audiobooks have become my best friend for that!?
Both add ebook
Depends on what you have time fot. And if you really love it, both
Hard copy and occasionally an ebook
Hard Copy & Ebooks
E-book or hard copy
e-book or audio
Hard copy. I wasn’t successful in paying close enough attention to the one audiobook I’ve tried.
Depends – I love both audio & text (digital or print) because visual and audio double team to expand the brain’s perception. Cases for Audio + Text: *if the work is linguistically musical litfic – so not the 3rd book in a commercial puff, romance, or YA series, why bother.) *if the work is voiced by someone sublime (like Shakespearean audio featuring Yule Brenner or the velvet-to-grimy fiction narration of Robert Goll) *if it is narrated by the author, such as Toni Morrison, who knows the cadence/rhythm of their writing and where they want emphasis placed. *if the text contains substantial dialect that may be difficult to sound out if never heard before or if you simply want to capture the verbal flavor as in the epic Man Booker winner “A Brief History of Seven Killings” by Marlon James, where Jamaican dialects are on parade, or “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain where pain of social status is accentuated by voice performance, best to go with both! *if the reader has the atypical “auditory dominance” in their sensory modality and would benefit from both *if the reader struggles with dyslexia, sight, or hand issues then audiobooks are a Godsend to help train the eye, brain, or simply ease suffering.
Both- that way I’m always reading even when I need to use my hands 😀
Both for me. I love to read but I also love being an online gamer so if I’m not online I like a hard copy but if I’m online I like an audiobook (currently listening to Moving Pictures by Terry Pratchett while I gank ‘n’ spank some poor unfortunate 😛 )
If I love love love the book I will buy a hard copy.
HC – I have tried a few times but I really can’t get used to audio.
Hard copy. It is very hard to find a good book with a good Narrator. My mind just won’t listen for long. My husband like audio books and we listen on car trips but they generally lull me to sleep.
Hard copy, 100%
Both. I use audio books in my vehicle. I also read hardback books and for the gym I use my Nook. I get more reading time in this way.
Hard Copy ?
Audiobook for me
HC or EC
Where can I get audio book..
Hard copy. Preferably hard cover as well.
Hard copy ?
Both. I’m not picky.
Hard copy, aka: paperback
Both. I listen when I drive long distance or I’m doing mundane chores. I also find listening helpful when there’s a lot of foreign phrases interspersed (The Name of the Rose comes to mind) or ethnic dialect (Their Eyes Were Watching God – once I got a sense for the rhythm of the dialect, I was able to read the print book more easily). The rest of the time I read print editions, bound books and ebooks both.
I prefer hard copy
Audio books! I went through several of them on my most recent road trip, 18 hours each way!
Hard Copy! Although my kids and I have started audiobooks we listen to TOGETHER in the car
They are 12 and 14 I should add
always Hard Copy
I like immersion reading, getting the book and adding narration to follow along
I love real books, but audio books are more convenient.
Both. I listen to audio in the car.
Both. I can’t cook or do housework without a good novel or nonfiction book playing in the background. But on the other hand, I love to set down and read.
I’m deaf, so hard copy.
I love my audio books
I can’t stand audio books I can’t concentrate and it’s listening not reading xx
I use to think that way too… but then my life happened lol and even after eye surgery reading takes a toll so I only read a little before bed plus with audio I can speed the book up
Audio but if I love the book I will purchase the actual
Love them both!
Love them both.
