$250 for six audiobooks.  WTF are they smoking?

Erm, all audiobooks cost about that much. It’s not like they cost 99c each. Besides, you get a lot of audiobook for your money (100+ hours).

I really love the idea and the crest on the back of the ipod, but I think it’s really dumb that you have to buy the audio books with it.  I love the series, but hate audio books.  I really wish they sold the ipod alone.

Way, way, way too much money for these books.
