Books - Paper or Audio?

A few posts ago, in The Return of the Story Teller, I had wondered why audio books have not blown away paper books.

Having almost finished the 29 hour audio book, Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, I know why.

Audio book does not let you think. When I read a book, I stop, think, reread and then proceed. Audio books do not give you the time to think. It is a constant supply of data that goes directly to the brain through the ears for post processing.

I think I will stick to books, of the paper kind, for some more time.

What do you prefer? Paper Books or Audio Books?
