The benefits of building an audiobook collection are quite similar to those of building a collection for printed books. A collection, as defined by Wikipedia, is “an assortment of information, sources, resources, and services: it is organized for use and maintained by a public body, an institution, or a private individual.” For the most part, we will be discussing the advantages of collecting audiobooks as a private individual. Books have been created and produced in spoken word format for a variety of subjects, and as a result, the mix of audiobooks varies for everyone. But why have a collection at all?

The primary advantage of having an audiobook collection is easy access to the information you value the most. Whether it’s a tribute to a favorite author or a business reference collection to refresh your knowledge on what makes a great business, your audiobook collection consists of books that you have enjoyed and cherished enough to know that you’ll either need them again or want the pleasure of listening to them again.

In many ways, audiobooks have followed the same trend towards affordability that movies have. I love movies, but if you had asked me 8-10 years ago whether I would start collecting them, I would have questioned if you thought I was made of money. Nowadays, my older nieces, in their late teens and early twenties, buy movies the way I used to buy music singles in my day. Since the prices are so low, they accumulate movies in what I often think is an indiscriminate manner. Now that audiobooks have decreased in price and are also available in downloadable formats, it is easier to collect them on your digital player or computer.

One of the other main benefits of collecting audiobooks versus printed books is their size. If you are an avid book lover, you might collect hundreds of books. Where do you store them? Not everyone has the space, but you can store hundreds of downloadable audiobooks on your computer to burn to CD or transfer to your digital player. If you prefer having the physical product, you can collect audiobooks in CD or cassette format, but these can be a bit more expensive and will undoubtedly take up more space in your home than a download. If you cannot afford to build your audiobook collection, you’ll be pleased to know that public libraries are also recognizing the benefits of offering audiobooks to their members. This can be an inexpensive way of “auditioning” books for your permanent collection.

Shopping for audiobooks has become very convenient due to the prevalence of online stores. Building your audiobook collection can also be made easier by browsing through audiobook catalogs provided by some of the online bookstores, like mine. An audiobook catalog offers an easy way to find books that you’re interested in without having to be online and without having to search for specific titles. If you want to see what’s available in the business field, you can consult that catalog. If you’re a health and recreation enthusiast, you can flip through and see what’s popular in that area.

Building an audiobook collection is no longer out of reach, and besides the benefits of easy access and compact size, there is also the advantage of portability. You can listen to your books while commuting or working out without having to carry those often cumbersome printed books.
