I shot through audio books when driving to college in a city 50 minutes away. I can recall thing that happen on the road when I re-read listen to books again later. I love how the human memory works like that. I often got lost in novels in high stress times and no-fiction when I was less stressed. I felt like I got an education from the drive and one from class that day some times. Listening to books on subject was always nice when I need to make a subject stick for finals.
I really dug having a book in paper form and the audio book also. I always feel like a live a book better in audio than print. I feel like the book and I interact with one another sometimes when I can listen to it and react. I realized at one time that I prefer audio because my Mom always read to me as a kid and I learn better that way. I am an auditory learner. I can get the same out if print, but it is not as easy for me to process.
