The recent revelation of Google making a play for the audiobook market with DRM-free audiobooks got me curious about audiobook consumption.
Do you listen to audiobooks? How?
I don’t, and after being frustrated with the format for a number of years I have come to the conclusion that I’d probably prefer the “abridged” version of an audiobook – one that more closely resembled story-telling rather than simply reciting the contents of a book. (If you’re not sure what I mean, think of how the War of the Worlds radio play differed from the book – it’s the same story, only in very different forms.)
How about you?
