Monday Madness

Hello, wonderlandians! It is Monday. . .

(Monday Mood)

Today’s topic is something that I have wanted to talk about for a bit. I keep seeing around the YouTube sphere and well as the Blog-o-sphere. There is a really interesting question that has been going around. It is about audiobooks. Are they real reading or not? If you listen to audiobooks does this make you not a real reader because you are not physically reading the book? These are the questions that I have been seeing. Everyone has really strong opinions on if this makes you a real reader.

As someone who listened to audiobooks almost exclusively over the better part of two year yes I say that I am real reader. I am consuming the same story just in a different format. You just have to make sure that you are getting the unabridged recording to audionbook. If you are getting the abridged version they are cutting out huge chunks of the story to cut down on the amount of listening time.

I guess I get somewhat mad when people say that listening to a book makes me not a real reader. When I wad a kid the only way I read was with an audiobook.

I really just wanted to get the converstation startm Let me onow waht you think. I will be making a more indepth post about this soon.

Thank you for joining me here in our part of wonderland. Don’t forget to feed the unicrons on your way out.

Until next time

Much love
