I went looking for a book I read thousands of years ago, Clifford Stoll’s The Cuckoo’s Egg. Found it on printed media, no problem. But I mostly listen to books now a days, so I went looking for the audio book, because it exists… on tape.
The price for used tape is about $40.
That would trigger a few other costs if bought, like a USB-tape deck which is another $40 .. to just get it onto my phone.
I wish the book would get recorded as an audiobook again, either Mr Stoll himself narrating the book, or a professional at Audible. I’d buy it in a blink.
