In the past there has been a perception that listening to an audiobook is ‘cheating,’ or not really reading the book. (snip) That perception has really receded in recent years, and in fact, there’s new research from a professor at University of Virginia that your brain is just as active while listening to an audiobook as it is while reading.
I have not been an audio-book or podcast person. Perhaps I need to change. I prefer to chew over pages.
