Is reading the book or listening to it the same?

Shall we sound off? What are your thoughts? https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/08/op...

I agree that listening is fair game. I have a friend who only does audio books, and she participates in a Book Club and it works fine. A long time ago I tried audiobooks, but I found myself mentally drifting so that I lost where I was in the story and had to go back and find where I left off. I did this so frequently I ended up buying the physical book and finishing it that way. So I'm confident that it's not for me, but I know it works for others, and I think it's a clever way to enjoy the written word while doing "mindless" tasks.

Beth | 7 comments I would not have made it through my long commutes while in grad school without my audiobooks! I began with the notion I would get through all the classics I should have read in high school/undergrad but quickly determined modern fiction actually kept me awake and focused! Since I was still working full-time with a family, that drive became my sanity hour!
