WARSAW – Let’s celebrate June! June is the beginning of summer, Father’s Day, and, June is Audiobook Month!
With an abundance of literacy benefits and entertainment value, eAudios and audiobooks are heating up headphones everywhere. What would a summer vacation be without some fun in the sun and an audiobook in your beach bag?
Did you know that listening to a downloadable audiobook is the fastest-growing way to experience a book? On family road trips, play an audiobook for the whole family to listen to, and you’ll have plenty to talk about when you reach your destination. Stuck on a plane, train, or bus? Escape the crowds with nothing but a pair of headphones and a good book.
If you want to experience your favorite classic in a new way why not try it on audio. Listen to it on your way to work, in the shower, or before bed. The opportunities are limitless, and the types of books you can find on audio are growing. One of the many benefits of listening to an audiobook is that some are read by the author or include commentary by the author.
Finding a spare moment in these busy times can be hard. This is why so many readers are turning to audiobooks. Not only are you enjoying literature but you can multitask while listening to a book, these amazing audiobooks make it possible for us to read on the go.
Audiobooks are a great way to keep kids, teens, and adults reading. Listening to audiobooks can increase your reading accuracy, improve your comprehension, and increase your motivation. 85% of what we learn, we learn by listening. A study conducted by the Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior found that our brains are actually more likely to create meaningful imagery when we listen to a story, as opposed to when it’s read in a traditional format because it allows more room for our brain’s visual processes to kick into gear.
We live in a world full of people, but there are times when we feel alone. Unfortunately, the comfort and company we need is not always easy to come by. In need of a companion for a road trip, listen to an audiobook. Want a kind voice to help you sleep, audiobook! Whatever your situation, an audiobook can be there for you, always ready to read you a story.
