I Was Wrong About Audiobooks

In my 20s, I refused to listen to audiobooks. For starters, to me, it didn’t count as actual reading. I also loved, and still love, paper books. To experience an audiobook felt like a betrayal to this admiration.

On top of all of that, I also thought it’d be incredibly slow, and I wouldn’t be able to skip around the book as I like to. I’d have to listen to it front to back.
