YA Indie Carnival - Do You Audiobook?

YA writers and bloggers unite each week to share their thoughts on what it's like going indie in today's publishing world.

Today we're discussing audio-books. To be honest - I don't have much experience with this. I've tried listening to books on CD before and it soon became apparent that I'm a visual learner. I need to see something with my eyes or I just tune out. 

However, I know plenty of people who love audiobooks. My brother is case in point. He used to listen to books as he drove through rush hour to work. I know many authors are starting to look at getting their books made into audio books. I think it's a great idea. I have investigated briefly, but the site I found is only open to the USA. I will keep my ears and eyes open for other options in the future, but for now, people are going to have to read my work :)

Are you an audiobook person? 
Do you prefer listening to or reading a book?
If you're a writer - have you made your books into audios? Is it worth it?

  1. I'm absolutely an audiobook fanatic. Rush hour traffic would not be tolerable without them. :)
