I would agree with Mark YN and Jim Dale (Harry Potter narrator) that is good for reading. It helped me find books my sons and I like to read. I also am more likely to try books that are not Science Fiction or fantasy, at least from the library or podcasts.
It gives peeps a chance to read when they might not have the chance to sit down and read a book, and it also probly increases interest in reading.

It’s been well established that reading to children helps encourage reading. My son and I read together all the time. I think if they are used correctly, audiobooks can be a great tool to help people get interested in reading.
