I have embraced "intensive reading." I am an avid reader and using audible in combination with kindle, I can switch back and forth. You can download the kindle app on your iPhone or android and even a kindle. When these devices are Wi-Fi connected they sync. I can be listening to the audio version on my phone over the car stereo and then I can pick up where I left off when I open the app on my iPad. While cooking dinner I can ask Alexa, my Amazon Echo Tower, to read my audible book. With the sleep timer and I can fall asleep to audible.
