Do people respond differently to audiobooks and real books? Show more Show less
Back to question

More and more people are listening to books rather than reading them, but how do the two experiences compare? Do people retain the same amount from audiobooks? Is one format easier to get into than the other? How do the different formats affect the experience of the book? Does the format change the way the book is interpreted?

Yes, people respond differently to audiobooks and real books Show more Show less

Books create a more emotive and personal experience than audiobooks because they are physical, tangible objects that can contain and display art. An audiobook exists in an intangible, digital space.
