Every June, the APA carries out a campaign to increase awareness and enthusiasm for audiobooks. With a long list of benefits, it’s no surprise that the popularity of audiobooks has skyrocketed.

Audiobooks not only make long drives fly by for commuters, but they are a multitasker’s dream. You can enjoy books while cleaning the house, cooking dinner, or working out at the gym. With a format that’s proven to help students become better readers and listeners, audiobooks are also a favorite among parents and teachers. But even more, audiobooks are simply fun.

Audiobooks bring print books to life with music, sound effects, and the voices of favorite characters. And sometimes listeners just want to close their eyes and let someone do the reading for them! With benefits as diverse as the listeners who enjoy them, audiobooks truly offer something for everyone.
