Audio vs Ebook vs Paperback

Out of those three, what is your favorite way to enjoy a book? For me it just depends. It depends on the time of year, it depends on how busy I am, it depends on how much I’m traveling… I really like all three, but sometimes it just depends on what else is going on.

When there’s a foot of snow on the ground and it’s four degrees outside. Nothing beats a hot cup of coffee and a good paperback.

If it’s ninety degrees outside and I’m cutting grass. Difficult to hold a paperback or tablet on the riding mower. I have listened to a lot of audiobooks on the mower. Some good, and some that are so bad that I find myself switching to FM radio on my mp3 player.

I have favorite authors, but I also have my favorite narrators. How about you?
James Marsters (yes, he was on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is the voice of The Dresden Files.
Dick Hill (Jack Reacher), Kirsten Potter (Lisa Gardner), Richard Ferrone (John Sandford Prey series) just to name a few.

I also have a new favorite narrator, Elizabeth Phillips. I had put out a couple of chapters for an open audition to read my book The Next. There were a few good ones, and a few bad ones that liked to breathe into the mic when they spoke.

When I heard Elizabeth read the first chapter, I knew she was the one that I wanted to bring this story to life. I’ll also provide a link where you can find the book on Audible. Once you hear her read the first chapter, you’ll want to hear what happens

One thought on “Audio vs Ebook vs Paperback

  1. Like you, I find that circumstances play a big role in what format I’m reading. I like print, digital, and audio. Audio is great for my work commute. Print is great for lazy afternoons, and digital is usually good for on the go and waiting in lines. I recently had to go to the courthouse to fill out some paperwork and wasn’t allowed to bring my Kindle in. That graphic novel in my bag was a lifesaver while I waited.
