In defense of the spoken word.

Books on tape have always felt like, well, cheating to me. I mean, smart people read, right? Dumb people buy tapes of books to save themselves the effort, right?


Well, here's a college professor who makes a powerful claim that it is the spoken word that drew him to literature in the first place.

Silly people. Books on tape are for listening to in the car, during the commute to and from work. I mean, why waste such an amount of time without reading a book? When I get home or at lunch, I dig back in whichever paper book I have at hand.
