Nope.

An audiobook doesn't allow progressing at my most comfortable speed (which may vary, depending on the subject). An audiobook does not easily lend itself to re-reading a paragraph which was not understood. And worst of all, an audiobook doesn't allow for code or for diagrams.

I read most fiction in written electronic format, but find audiobooks too distracting for my only use case - driving. For technical stuff I still prefer dead trees.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
