Books have always been an essential tool for mankind to attain knowledge throughout history. Nevertheless, they are not the only route to becoming a ”knowledgeable person.” Anyone can be as scholarly as a bookworm without reading any page. In the modern society, technology has given each individual an extremely useful tool for attaining knowledge without reading: an audio book. With an audio book, a person can gain a specific amount of information in a convenient and speedy way. He or she can just plug in earbuds and do other physical activity, such as running or working out. Furthermore, audio books significantly help people who have dyslexia, a type of language-based learning disability which prevents comprehensive and fluent reading. According to austinlearningsolutions.com, there are over 40 million American adults suffering from dyslexia. With an audio book, this reading disorder is no longer a problem. A senior at Faith, Mikayla Martin gave this opinion: ”I appreciate audio books because they allow people who struggle to read visually to get the same experience of reading.” This is absolutely true! Audio books have been bringing a whole new world to visually-impaired people since 1969, reports silksoundbooks.com.  Now, thanks to the popularity of sites such as Audible.com, much more of the public has started to enjoy audio books. Audiobooks.com provides more than 100,000 audio books, so start exploring the options!
