Audiobooks on YouTube: How to Listen for Free – by The Book Designer…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Audiobooks have absolutely boomed in popularity in recent years, and it’s not hard to understand why.

Today’s lifestyle means that most people spend a lot of time on the go, whether that means they’re commuting to and from work, juggling a few different jobs, or managing household affairs. People are often looking for something to fill that time, especially ‘dead’ time like commuting which would otherwise be spent in silence or listening to the radio.

And this boom is a great thing! Audiobooks make books more accessible, and having an easier way to read means people are likely to read more. However, audiobooks can get expensive, and while some people will go back and listen to audiobooks again and again, a lot of readers might feel hesitant about dropping so much money on a book they’ll listen to once.

What is a poltergeist?

The word poltergeist is derived from the German for “loud ghost” or “noisy spirit”. A poltergeist is a type of spirit or ghost that can create physical disturbances in the real world such as making loud noises and moving objects or even destroying them. It is also believe in ghostlore, that poltergeists can pinch, bit, hit, and trip people, as well as being able to levitate objects and move them around.

The film, The Exorcist, is based on the ‘real-life’ haunting of a 13-year-old boy referred to as ‘Roland Doe’ in 1940. After the death of his aunt, Doe began to experience strange occurrences whereby his mattress would move, a mysterious liquid dripped from the walls of his bedroom, and scratching noises came from beneath the floor.
