Audio books send me to sleep. I have to be fully engaged with my entertainment, which usually means movies or TV shows, or reading a good book. Listenig to someone read a book? Zzzzzzzzzz!

That's what I like about them, especially a good familiar story -- it helps put my brain into neutral and stops those "I'm bored, but exhausted" gears clashing. Also great for those long business drives!
