@Askswell | 📙Do you READ books anymore or do you prefer to LISTEN to them on Audible?🎧

Hello, my swellcast family. Happy afternoon. Hey, I had a question. I was just sitting here thinking, and I was like, you know about books, because I love books. I love everything about books. I love reading. When I was a child, I read so much I would get awards for reading. And I enjoy a book because you can be anything in a book. Your whole adventure can start from the front page to the ending

I wanted to get some books lined up before I made my subscription, so I'll know what books that I wanted to go ahead and go about and order them, because I think a few of them I was looking for, they weren't there, and I kind of got disenchanted by it. But that's not the only audiobook. Audible is not the only one. It's so many different ones. You can also do it through your library

So it's an adventure in itself and I love contributing to that by writing a book of my own, or even some coloring books for kids with words in them, with stories, rather, in them. So, yes. Thank you so much for commenting on this. Well, oh, and I do like some poetry. I was into poetry a long time ago, but I don't think I've done any kind of recent poetry

Hey, Evelyn. I was just having another swell conversation with somebody else on here about reading books versus listening to books. They're asking for a creative, productive app and I have recently discovered Blinkst, and I think it's like a spark notes version of Audible, which I think is great because some books just don't need to take 8 hours to listen to and my personal opinion anyway, I think it can be condensed. Blinks does that pretty well

It's. Thank you so much for responding to this well. And I absolutely have not heard of Blinks. That sounds wonderful. Like a Cliff Notes version. Because you're right, some books, I don't need to wait 8 hours to hear everything. So a broken down version would help me just fine. I love when people give me app information or information that's going to make my life a little bit easier, can help me learn and do it easier. I love that

@LadyFi. I love reading books, but I struggle to follow and connect with an audio book.

But, yeah, great question and I like to hear that you're a reader because I am as well, so great. Very happy to hear that. And like I said, I hate to draw away from your question, but I want to do a little bit of advertising because it's relevant to the subject. You might have heard them coming out with a brand new segment on Swell sometime soon. It's going to evolve around writing, which isn't necessarily reading, but it's connected

I read the book about the sign in Harry Potter, the Elder Wand and all of that other stuff. But anyway, I have the entire set, so but my kids, they are not Harry Potter fans, so they don't read it at all. But I remember when Harry Potter first came out and you could only get like the first or second book. But anyway, yes, when your series comes out, I'll be sure to check it out. Thank you for stopping by and leaving

These are also great for key ideas of main books, which I agree, we don't need 8 hours often to listen to you some key points repeated very frequently. So yeah, just wanted to throw in some two cent there. Love this topic, love to hear there's people interested in reading and always looking forward to new Swells. Bye

And I think once people get past, oh, I have to touch a book in order to read the book, I think that audiobooks will blow up even further. Now, for the newer generation, that's what they know. I mean, they don't remember going to the library and checking out books using the Dewey decimal system or using the card catalog. They don't remember that, so they have no way to even compare that
