I love listening to audiobooks when I'm travelling. (I get moetion sickness so I can't read, even if I'm not driving.)
I have enjoyed several audiobooks that I seriously doubt I would have read as books, thanks to great narrators. I can only listen to them for a maximum of maybe 20-30 minutes at a time, or my mind wanders off somewhere and I have no clue what went on in the book. That does not happen to me when I'm reading books! When I'm reading something good I completely lose the outside world!
