Audio Books have now been around for a number of years and having apps with integrated technology to read yo you has only boosted their popularity further. In most smart phones there is a feature that allows the phone to scan and read sections of whatever your reading aloud so you can listen to it as opposed to reading it.
There are also specifically tailored apps that will download the complete selection of novels, biographies or personal interest and read it to you with the comfort of your headphones on or coming though your speakers. It is not everyone preference but it is a means to engage deeper into language, the power of good story telling and also a great alternative to being a modern zombie spending countless hours being drained by television. What’s even better with audio books is that they are not saturated with an abundance of adverts for things you don’t want technically need in your life.
With eBooks now becoming more popular than ever, what are the advantages of buying books this way? Many phone and tablet platforms now offer the purchase of digital copies of many books; these books can be purchased and downloaded to your account. One of the benefits of this is that you can download a copy of the purchased book on to more than one of your devices. Many people opt to use eBooks when on holiday as it also saves on luggage space and means that you can take many books down to the beach or swimming pool with you by only taking your phone or tablet.
You will also find that there are many eBooks that are free to download and if you are a quick reader this can save you quite a bit of money. Most eBooks allow you to preview the book and read the first few pages without having to buy where as it is not really thought of as acceptable to stand in a shop reading the pages of a book before you decide to buy it.
Many great films all began in a book, where an author takes you on a journey and you’re able to use your own imagination to take you through the story. Many people, and children in particular, enjoy watching films and buying DVDs however, spending some time reading can also be a rewarding experience.
Reading a book is completely different to watching a film, you don’t rely on graphics and actors, and instead you rely on your own imagination. For example many people have read harry potter, and watch the films and the vast majority will say ‘the films are nothing like the books’.
If you’ve not sat down in awhile with a book then it could be time to dedicate some time to reading, it could be your new year’s resolution and there are so many new unique experiences that books can take you on, so experience it first before it hits the motion pictures.
