There are so many people in the world who love reading books, and the Audio books have made things even easier. You can just play it, and start listening. So it makes you to complete even more chapters than you usually do while reading it yourself.
When you can’t find a book in Audio format, what could you do in this situation? There is a perfect solution for that, and I have tested on iPhone. All you need is an app, and it does everything you want. You can use the app “Books Speech” that is available for iPhone as well as iPad.
