Fiction Gets a New Lease with Audiobooks

SFFaudio News

The Guardian Unlimited Books BlogBelinda Webb of Guardian Unlimited talks about her New Year’s resolution of listening to audio books in her latest column:

The audiobook is perfect for the time impaired. In 2005 and 2006 the UK audiobook market was worth a whopping £71.4m. Audiobooks can seem rather expensive considering they use no paper and don’t have to rely on expensive warehouse storage and distribution, but, for me, it will still work out cheaper than the combined cost of a gym fee and my book-buying habit – and it will do much more for my own sense of achievement.
