Kindle Text to Speech Not Like an Audiobook

Now, that I have my new Kindle, I can say with certainty that Kindle’s text to speech is not like an audiobook.  It is like text to speech on a computer screen.  I with almost absolute certainty suspected that coming in, but it makes it all the more difficult to understand why some publishers spoke out so strongly against the text to speech function.  I agree with those that say this whole thing is dumb.  Don’t get me wrong, I like the text to speech.  It seems like it will be helpful to keep concentration if my eyes are getting a little weary.  But, it is nowhere near the point where I would give up my Audible subscription (which I love).  And, I think anyone who makes it out to seem like text to speech will kill audiobook sales is being silly.
