Audio Books

Commenter BS King wonders over at her own site, Fair Trade Certified, what the proper phrasing is for referring to books you have listened to, but not read. It is rather a question of whether you get full credit for audio books.

Taleb notes this historical figure, with a comment on his reading habits.
Both Huet and Bayle were erudites and spent their lives reading. Huet, who lived into his nineties, had a servant follow him with a book to read aloud to him during meals and breaks and thus avoid lost time. He was deemed the most read person of his day.

Sounds like audio books to me.
