    If I'm listening to an audiobook instead of reading it myself, it's because I'm busy doing something else. If you're not devoting all your attention to reading, you're probably missing a lot. A bad narrator can really take you out of it too.

      This, Ive listened to this book three times and each time I became aware of a whole "frequency" of topics I wasnt aware of in previous listening, first was the super technical parts, second time was the social/banter/lab talk parts, third was other technical parts I didnt notice.

      Feel like I have to relisten to catch everything since Im doing other stuff at the same time.

    Listening to an audiobook is superior to reading and I'm tired of pretending otherwise

    you're not engaging with the text, which is what reading is.
    i've listened to books and got the gist of them but it isn't the same.

      Define "engaging with the text"

    It's a totally different experience. How could you listen to anything that even has a slight play textually and understand it?

    It's only reading if you're high IQ enough to transcribe the words in your head as you listen. Then you can engage with it pretty much like a written text. You need to be paying attention for this, not just passively taking it in like most audiobook listeners do.

    Right now I’m unironically listening to 12 Rules and I feel like it’s written in a way that I’m not missing anything. Very much in plain language. If you are listening to any “great book” you are most definitely not reading it and missing a lot. Definitely some merit to listening to it at 1.5 speed as a skim and then returning to it for a more thorough pass

    there are some books that will never be audiobooks, and then there are some audiobooks that weirdly are audiobooks... Like Enneads

    When you read almost a whole page and by the end of it, you realize your mind wandered off and you don't know what you just read.

    No it's not. Letting words flow over your ears is not the same as imbibing a text visually.

    The hard pill that IQfy isn't ready to swallow is that books are not an art medium but a storage device. Books were not meant to be read in silence, they are records of the oral tradition. The correct way of "reading" is to either do it out loud, or to have someone, preferrably a supple underage slave, read it to you right before you sodomize his butt. Audiobooks are not a soulless invention of the robotic age like the luddites often think, they are bringing back the original, true form of consuming the written word.

    Its not but it gives you the same information of you are paying attention and can be useful for the dyslexic folk and, for the purpose of discussing literature, its functionally the same so I don't get screechy about it unless someones being one of those "listening is actually better because I can do it while doing other things" dog c**ts.
