Do you remember the first time you listened to an audiobook? For me, it was 13 cassette tapes in bulky packaging that held BBC Radio 4 dramatization of the Lord of The Rings. It was a massive investment for a teenager, yet I loved all 56 hours of it. I’ve been a book nerd from the day I learned to read, and audiobooks presented a way for the story to live again. By the time Harry Potter became available on audiobook, I was no longer a teenager, yet I bought every book on audiobook, in addition to books. Today, I am format agnostic. Print, ebook, audiobook, I love it all. In fact, when they find a way to connect a book directly into my brain, I will be the first in line.
