I love audiobooks
I have been listening to audiobooks for about 10 years. It's one of my favorite things to do when I'm driving or before bed. Anytime I want to relax and go to another place I put my headphones on and shut my eyes.
One of the things I really love about audiobooks is when I find some really talented narrators. They just make the story come to life with there emotions and different voices for the characters. I find my self looking for books read by narrators I love. Just like I look for book of authors I love.
I'm 35 now and I plan on continuing listening for the rest of my life. The collection of audiobooks I have is one of my prized possessions. When I'm older and my eye sight starts going like my grandfathers did I will be listening to audiobooks just like he did. The only difference is I will have my own small library at my fingertips.
I absolutely love Audible, BUT
I updated to the new version on my iPad Air 2, had to log back into the app which took literally forever but finally connected. My audio book recent list is no longer in the proper order. I was unable to play the audiobook I have been listening to, the app just clocked trying to open the book. I deleted the book from my device and downloaded from the cloud and had to start the book from the beginning in order to get it to play. I do hope that adding all of the extras will not impact those of us who use Audible for actual audiobooks. I could care less about the channels, but I listen to my audiobooks daily.
New update ?
I love audible.... but I usually speed up the reading slightly because I can't listen to it super slow... and it used to tell me how much time was left in the book when I listen to it at 1.5 (it would be faster than the normal audiobook time) and now it doesn't do that so I don't know how much time I have left in it! Just changed with the update but I hope it goes back to how it was before. I like knowing how much listening time I have left at a quicker speed than normal.
