Hello everyone. This is Howard Sundwall, on the board of the WCPL. I’ve been invited to co-write this blog and I’m happy to be here.
In addition to several print books I’m reading right now, I’m also listening to an audiobook (downloaded to my iPhone free in MP3 format from the CCLS system). It’s “The History of Warfare” by my favorite military historian, John Keegan. That leads me to a question. You read a book but you listen to an audiobook. Is ‘listen’ the right word? It doesn’t sound strong enough for the engaged, active listening that’s required. We need a new word for attending to audiobooks. Audioreading? I don’t think eReading fits — that’s for reading an electronic book (something else I do on my iPhone!). Lreading? Ear-reading?
