An audiobook is a recording of a book or other work being read out loud. Instead of reading the text on a printed page or screen, listeners can experience the content by listening to the spoken words. Audiobooks can be produced in various formats, including CDs, downloadable digital files, and streaming services.
Audiobooks are popular for their accessibility and convenience, allowing people to "read" books while engaging in other activities, such as commuting, exercising, or doing household chores. They are available in a wide range of genres and are often narrated by professional voice actors or even the authors themselves, enhancing the listening experience.
