As a teacher I'm well aware of the fact that different people prefer different learning styles. I'm definitely a visual learner, and the written word is actually visual in it self. As a child I hated audiobooks. Whereas I could read a paper book for hours on end, audiobooks gave me absolutely nothing.
Today I've decided to give audiobooks a second try. They give me the opportunity to multitask, like folding laundry or mopping floors *sigh*. It's hard growing up, having to act all responsible and stuff..
