What are audiobooks and why you should try them 

An audiobook is a way of enjoying a book by listening to it instead of reading it. Someone reads the book aloud and records their voice so you can hear the story or the information. You can listen to audiobooks on different devices, such as your phone, your tablet or your computer. 

Many new books have audiobooks made for them, especially if they are popular or well-known. Audiobooks are great for people who are busy or who prefer to listen rather than read. They also create opportunities for voice actors who can bring the books to life with their voices.
