A Question Regarding Audio Books

There was a nasty comment left on one of my audio-book reviews last week, not here on Booklikes, but somewhere else. The name calling bothered me a little bit, (then I decided to OWN it and changed my moniker on the site), but what really bothered me was the comment that listening to audio books is NOT reading. 




While I realize that technically, listening is NOT reading, I believe that in spirit, anyway, it IS reading. I currently have a poll going on the Char's Horror Corner Facebook page, but what say you, Booklikers? Is listening to an audio book reading? Yeah or Nay?
