Do audiobooks count as reading?

Show Notes

We’re big fans of audiobooks.


We’re bringing the great debate to our podcast and asking the question, do audiobooks count as reading? Bookstacked writer Michael Burns dived into the history and culture around audiobooks in a recent article, and we decided to dissect it on the show.

When’s the best time to listen to audiobooks? Is the audiobook ever better than the book itself? How much of an impact does a narrator have on an audiobook? What audiobook recommendations do we have? There’s plenty to discuss in this episode!
