We need to acknowledge that the world is changing in a very fast speed. We need to learn sometimes, to adjust to change.
Book traditionalists have insisted that piped in sounds distract from written word and stamp on the imaginations of readers.
The users of soundtrack books believe it is about time such improvement takes place.
A friend recommended that I tried a soundtrack book this one time. The book was Rich Dad Poor Dad. It was so difficult to focus on what I was hearing.I got so bored from plugging headset and listening. However I think there can work best when you are travelling you don’t have time to stop a car and read.
I love the smell of old books.for now I think i will stick with hardcopy.
But I have this question in my mind: will books without soundtrack one day seem as archaic?
