To encourage myself to exercise more, I wanted to download some audiobooks to my iPod. However, I was surprised at the cost of the books and limited selection at iTunes. They had some that were between $10 to $15, as well as others that ranged from $30 to $40 for one book. Shocked Is that normal? I didn't think ebooks were even that expensive. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Heather

No need for the red face. We've all done something like that. I'm a serious fan of audiobooks and tend to be a little pushy in trying to get others to share the fun. Enjoy!

Yup. She's right. I'm laughing at myself because, hey, that's what I should have said in the first place. Cool

What's really annoying is my library uses two audio download services and neither is compatible with iPod because they use WMA format (I think it has to do with the license and expiration). If I ever wear out my Nano I'm going to a different player.
