Audiobook narrator Simon Vance on listening to a book rather than reading.
Read/listen to the conversation between Vance and A Burnable Book author Bruce Holsinger—on their recent collaboration, and how Henry VIII’s voice was conceived for the book.
My husband and I are constantly having this argument: Can you say you read a book if you listened to it? I say yes, he says no. He says you can say you “experienced” the book. I say that I can describe an audiobook just as well as one that I’ve read with my eye balls, if not better.
