We all know that sooner or later, the print media will lose completely to the technology of making audio books and ebooks. It's already started and it's gaining ground fast.

Which kind of electronic book do you see yourself drawing more closer to using?
 
I learn more by reading than listening. But there are places where an audiobook is convenient like travelling when you are trying to be attentive.

It did felt odd to me the very first time I tried audio book but I'm used to it now.
 
I feel I would prefer eBooks more because some eBooks have pictures to go along with text. I can also read an eBook while having a conversation on the phone or when not having a face to face conversation with someone in real life.

Reading an eBook on an eReader or computer is more private than listening to an Audiobook with speakers where everyone close to the speaker can hear what you are listening to.

You have a very good point there about the inclusion of pictures in ebooks which helps with better explanation on the subject you're reading.
 
Audiobooks are better when you are very busy and need to be listening to it on the go.
 
I haven't used audio books yet but I'm open to giving it a try whenever I have something in that format I have to listen to. I'm used to ebooks because I read a lot of it always.
 
I have used both methods but prefer audiobooks over e-readers, but either way is fine. And you're right, paper books are on the way out and so is every type of media.
 
I honestly prefer physical books lol but for this I’d choose an e-book. I do better seeing the words than hearing them. But audio books can be great for long trips.

I might sleep off listening to them on a long trip. Although, it may depend on what the content of the book is about and what the voice sounds like lol.
