Audio books really upped my reading habits after I started working and didn't have as much time to read, now I can listen in the car or while doing busy work at my desk.

BUT there is something special about the smell of a printed hardcover in your hands, especially when you get about halfway through and it just sort of lays open naturally.

I listen to audio books while fishing. No time to set aside reading a traditional book although I have tons. I do take traditional books on "phone-free" vacations. Nothing like sitting in the shade on a cool afternoon reading a good book.

One book I like is "The Truth Machine" by James Halperin

"The Truth Machine (1996) is a science fiction novel by James L. Halperin about a genius who invents an infallible lie detector. Soon, every citizen must pass a thorough test under a Truth Machine to get a job or receive any sort of license. Eventually, people begin wearing them all the time, thus eliminating dishonesty in all parts of human interaction, and eliminating crime, terrorism and a great deal of general social problems"
