Why audiobook? Because audiobooks are the future of books
What is the future of books? Audiobooks or talking books, feel experts. Books started evolving as ebooks in the digital world, as people set up their private world around their smartphones and tablets. People, especially the generation aged 18 – 35 have shifted their focus from television to mobile phones for entertainment; so much that the television channel giants are airing their shows through mobile phone apps like HotStar by Start TV group. Web series and YouTube channels are the latest in entertainment and stealing the limelight from organized television channels. While books evolved as ebooks, which can be read using a mobile phone or tablet as a reading device, it still needs to be “read”. As our lives get busier, our work eats up most of our time and energy, our energy to ‘read’ keeps getting diminished. This is why ebooks never really became very popular. What is the solution to make people read books? The answer is, if someone reads it to them, the way our parents and grandparents read out books when we were kids. Audiobooks are coming to revolutionize the world of books and change the way we know books. Books, in the form of sound files can be ordered from online bookstores, downloaded in your mobile phone device and ‘heard’ while you travel to or from work, or university, or college, or school or relax at home. All you need to do is plug in your earphone to your phone or tablet and play the sound file. A nice sexy or baritone voice reads out your favourite book to you with light music in the background, through your earphones. And you don’t have to give the effort of reading the small letters. You can close your eyes and listen, or simply look out of the window of the car, bus or train while you are travelling. It is an experience similar to listening to the FM radio. And audiobooks will be priced less than printed books. You can listen to your favourite book in one go or in several sessions. And yes, just like ebooks, audiobooks are portable; they have no weight or bulk; your phone or tablet or laptop can accommodate hundreds of books and you can choose which one you want to hear.
We have seen that things evolve and change rapidly in today’s world. Writing letters is a thing of the past; landline phones were replaced by mobile phones and then smartphones; television is losing viewership to internet based entertainment; brick and mortar shops and stores are closing down in the face of online megastores. There are hundreds of examples of these changes around us. Printed books will also give way to audiobooks faster than you can imagine. So, embrace the change and get ready for it.
