Fast Company – More People Are Listening to Books

Just came across this interview with Audible founder and CEO Donald Katz on Fast Company’s website.

I’m surprised that audio book sales grew by 20 percent last year — just seems like a lot.

I also hadn’t heard that Amazon Kindle plays Audible audio books, but I suppose I should have known since I had heard that Amazon acquired Audible.

And the idea that one day you’ll be able to use the Kindle to read a book from the same point that you left off listening to to the audio book excites me!

How do y’all feel about audio books?

Listening to Barack Obama’s Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance sold me on audio books.
