I'd be impressed too! But I'm a visual person, I couldn't do it.

The other thing with audiobooks, is anytime there is some kind of noise (say my uphill neighbor is having his tree trimmed or the downhill neighbor's kids are making a racket), it's going to make it harder to listen and hear the spoken word. I don't do well at all hearing with other noise around, never have. Whereas noise doesn't impede my visual reading much. Though I have to admit, during wildfire season, I might go through a lot more eye-drops....
