I started listening to audiobooks about 3-4 years ago and now I listen to audiobooks just slightly more than I read ebooks. The split is about 60/40, maybe 55/45 audiobooks over e-books. I have a Kindle & IPad Mini, I listen to books on my Kindle and typically read on my Mini. I read about 1 physical book a year, if that. This year I read a few, maybe 5 and am currently reading an ARC Paperback right now.
I recommend everything!
It depends on the person and their preferences. If they don't like action I'm not going to recommend Matt Reilly to them. But if it's just a free for all recommend anything, I typically will list about 25-50 books.
I love making recommendations and love being ask for recommendations. I definitely do recommend The Night Circus to anyone who likes magical type books.
I read a LOT. A typical month for me is 25-30 books. When I do challenges (like I recently was involved in one that lasted 5 months) I read much much more. The last few years I've read over 300 books in a year. This year I'll be nearing 500. I'm a bit burnt out after reading so much for the challenge (289 books in 5 months) so I've only been listening to audiobooks at night before sleeping, since it finished. I have a horrible time falling asleep at night so audiobooks help with that, or at the very least, keep me from being bored while I'm tossing and turning.
