The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings Of A Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.
This week’s hop is: Do you listen to audiobooks? If so, do you prefer listening instead of reading? (submitted by Elizabeth @ Silver’s Reviews).
I definitely listen to audiobooks. In fact, I always try to find an audio for a book first, so I can save some money buying an ebook. I don’t think I prefer audiobooks over ebooks however. It really depends on some factors though. For instense, audiobooks rely heavily on the narration. If the narration is not that great or just not for me, I prefer an ebook over the audiobook. But if the narration suits me, I’m fine with it.
What about you? Do you listen to audiobooks and if so, do you prefer them over reading?
