Audiobooks or Print Books?

Audiobooks are audio files on any device, like your phone. Audiobooks are voice recordings of any book. Basically, it’s a book that’s being read out loud to you. Audiobooks could also be hard to listen to.  The reason why they could be hard to listen to is that people would lose focus while doing something else. 

On the other hand, print books are easier to read. Meanwhile, there are virtual options for some books on the World Wide Web, Print books are a lot better than reading them on a screen. According to,Print is easier to comprehend than digital text.” And I agree. Reading print books, you can absorb more information, and remember more of the plot. Also, there are thousands upon thousands of books. You could go to the library, get a library card, and grab a book, and read. Seventh grader, Connor Schroyer said, “I prefer print books. The reason why I prefer print books is because when you get lost, you can go find it really easily.” To add on, another seventh grader, Avery Jewart said, “Probably print books. The reason why I would say print books is because it’s easier to get lost and involved in the story. You can also read it in your own way. You can choose the way to interpret, like the voice in your head.”  A third and final seventh grader, Olivia Rozier was asked her opinion on the matter and she said “I choose print books because I’m used to them, and I like reading them. I don’t really listen to Audiobooks.” 

Everyone has a different opinion on whether you should read print books or listen to audiobooks. Some teachers have added audiobooks and print books into their curriculum but at the end of the day, it’s a personal choice. If you like print books, read a print book, if you like audiobooks listen to an audio book.
