Physical Books versus Audio Books

When comparing physical books and audio books, the generation gap plays a big role. The in thing these days are audio books while physical books have been around for so many years. Both books have the same knowledge and content imparted to the listener or reader, comparing them could not be avoided since are still a lot of people, especially the older generation who do not know what audio books are.

You can listen to audio books on your iPod, audio CD or your cell phone. It is lightweight and can be brought anywhere and listened to on the car, train or plane. The prices of audio books are similar to physical books and even in some cases more affordable. Physical books are those you commonly find in bookstores. Although you can also bring physical books along with you, some might be very heavy and take up a lot of bag space. Moreover, physical books will turn brown in years and could be left forgotten in the bookshelf or get torn.

When comparing these two types of books, it all depends on the person using it. For busy people and those who are always on the go, audio books are perfect. On the one hand, for people who can and are willing to spend a few hours curling up in a corner and get lost in a book or two, physical books are the best option.
