Open Letter to Audio Books Makers

Dear Audio Book Makers.

Your products, in my humble opinion are too expensive. Five yes, ten maybe, thirty NO.

Also, while I have your attention: More IT, please. I understand a lot of the techy books I’m interested in may have code examples or diagrams that don’t translate, but if the price is right I’ll deal. Perhaps you could shoot me a pdf with my purchase?

Finally, I wanted to let you know that I’m okay with text to speech. I don’t know if that would save you, and ultimately me, any money but It’s not so bad these days. I might have abandoned you completely for your cousin the eBook Makers, had the Kindle not been smote. Although, a cursory search reveals that I might have some of the same issues with them. Maybe I’ll write them a letter too.

For now, I’ll stick to my podcasts. I’ll check back with you later.
