But are they overpriced? Let's take Mr. Follet's book; I would guess that it's going to take even the very fastest reader at least 10h to read. It costs $20, so that's $2 per hour. Do you honestly think that is too much to pay for good quality entertainment? It's far cheaper than practically any other form of entertainment that I can think of.
