given that the cost for duplicating a cd is ridiculously low compared to the cost of publishing a book, this seems like highway robbery.
For Potter fans who haven't read all of the books, don't have the time to sit down and read thousands of pages, and who prefer to optimize their commute by listening to audiobooks or other spoken-word content (like podcasts), I think this will be welcome news. When you consider the price of comparable audiobooks, I don't think the price is unreasonable.
