Turning Up the Volume on Audiobooks in Canada
Positive reports from The FutureBook Conference indicate that audiobook use is on the rise, especially in the US, the UK, and Sweden. In Canada, audiobook use has been the focus of an in-depth survey.
At the end of last month, BookNet Canada released Are You Still Listening? Audiobook Use in Canada 2016, a survey of audiobook consumers, who they are, what they’re listening to, how long they listen, how much they pay for audiobooks, where they get them, and other factors that provide a snapshot of audiobook use in Canada.
BookNet Canada is a Canadian-based nonprofit organization that works closely with the Book Industry Study Group (BISG).
