Comparing Audio and Physical Books

The generation gap plays a major role in comparing audio books and physical books. Audio books are considered the in thing these days while physical books have been around for hundreds of years. While both books have the same content or knowledge imparted on the reader or listener, comparing them is inevitable because there are still many people, particularly the older generation who do not have an idea what audio books are.

Audio books can be listened to on an audio CD, iPod or mobile phone. It is light and you can bring it anywhere and can be read to whether you are on a train, car or plane. Audio books are comparable to the prices of physical books and sometimes they are more affordable. Physical books are of course the books you find in bookstores. While you can bring them along with you, some might be too heavy to carry and could take up a lot of space in your bag. These books could turn brown in years to come and could be torn and left forgotten in the bookshelf.

When it comes to comparing these two kinds of books, it will all depend on the person who will use it. For people who are always on the go, an audio book is a great option. On the other hand, for those who could spend time to read in a corner and let their imaginations run wild, then a physical book is the best option for them.
