It is if you're blind.

On tape?

Ah, when I was a middle-aged hasbeen. I miss those days.

Is watching porn like having sex?

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

Well I mean it is “like” having sex. It’s just not exactly like having sex. Both can make you cum.

Listening to an audio book is like reading. Does the brain interpret it similar to reading the written word? Does anyone know?

I'm cumming.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

I stand corrected. I thought it was asking if audio books were considered reading, not are they the same.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

Masturbating to porn is masturbating, not sex.

Short answer? It depends on your brain, and how narrowly you define "similar". Is it less of a learning experience than reading the written word? Yes.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

Masturbation is a sexual act, hence it is “like” sex in the same way that human tastes like ham.

Of course not. I can listen to an audiobook while walking the dog, running after a bus or walking by the river. Try doing those activities while reading a book and see what happens.

I like the satisfaction of placing a bookmark into a physical book to save my place and being able to line up all my books on a shelf. Books on tape are great but they don’t give the same satisfaction.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

Sure, much the same way watching a movie based on a book can be considered reading.

How many students have been surprised over the years with a failing grade based on that nonsense?

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

Yes and no. You are still using your imagination but can't get the sensory pleasure of holding a book.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

I don't find it to be the same. Sometimes the way someone else reads something puts me off.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

I would rather hold a book in my hands. I don't know how anyone can read books online. Gives me a headache.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

Same. I tried listening to A Dance With Dragons simply because my hardcover was too heavy and bulky to take with me while I commute. Even though it was read by Sir Derek Jacobi, I couldn't get through a whole chapter. Especially when he did "voices".

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

👍

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

No comparison. Reading a book is far better, for all the reasons that the other book lovers have already stated.

Cutting through all of the CRAP!
Listening to books on AUDIO is NOT the same as READING A BOOK!

For those who are actually LITERATE, there is a satisfaction in sitting down to read a good book.
However, there is a pleasant satisfaction in sitting back and enjoying the experience of someone reading to you. I took great pleasure in that when I was a little girl.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

I can read but nowadays I have this annoying inability to settle down and read so audiobooks have become part of my audio experience when I’m travelling or doing chores.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

I love it when traveling. I also enjoy it as I fall asleep.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

No not the same. Reading builds a unique skill set than being read to.

Re: Is listening to books on tape the same as reading?

Yeah but some people should learn how to listen.
