Audiobooks are great for adults as well as for children. The books are a great way for children to enjoy hearing characters come alive while adults can listen to the book while exercising, driving, working or relaxing at home. 

What's more, audiobooks are an additional format that can help authors sell more books. In this way, authors do not have to solely depend on print and e-book formats. 

While readers continue to love print books and e-books, audiobooks are fast becoming a favorite among consumers. People listen to audiobooks in their cars, on their phones, and on mobile devices. 

In its 2018 StatShot Annual Report, the Association of American Publishers found that audio remained the fastest-growing format, with a 28 percent growth from 2017 to 2018 and 181.8 percent growth from 2014 to 2018.

Publisher's Weekly reported that audiobook sales climbed from an estimated $2.1 billion in sales in 2016 to $2.5 billion in 2017, a 22.7 percent increase. 

According to Statista, 57 percent of consumers listen to audiobooks on their smartphones, followed by 52 percent who listen on their desktop or laptop computer.

If you are a writer and want to join the audiobooks movement and find another way to reach a new audience, (MANA) can help.
