I do the same.

Although if I'm taking a road trip or something I will listen to audiobooks.

If so, I "read" that book many years ago!
I looked on Amazon.com. I had read/listened to "The Lion's Game" years ago. "The Lion" is book two in the series.

I prefer to hold an actual book, to breathe in the fresh scent of ink and paper when I first open it, and to watch the words dance across the page. I am very visual, so I get more out of seeing the way words and sentences are constructed and creating my own interpretation of a character's voice, accent, or tone. I am sure there are very aurally oriented people who get more out of listening than seeing; it just depends on your learning style.

Try listen to the daily NRA Podcast once in a while when music get's a bit boring.

It can be informative and interesting.

Lots of good "GUN" podcasts for your IPhone

I, too, am a visual learner. I retain more when reading than just listening. And I like to smell the book, too.

I read books because of the security where I work. We aren't allowed to have any "computer-type" devices, cell phones, recorded/recording media. The flight to and from work is my quiet time, so to speak and that's where I do my reading. At home, I sit quietly on my couch and read. That is where I could use the book on CD (or Kindle or one of the other tablets) but for me, that would be a waste of time and money. I already have the books so that's what I read.
