WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, a book I have never read, consists of only ten sentences, yet it is the second most popular audio book in the iTunes Music Store. 

Who purchases a ten sentence audio book, even if it’s only 95 cents? 

According to the product description, the recording is six minutes long.  Six minutes to read ten sentences?  I may just have to purchase the audio book to figure out what the hell is going on during this recording.  

As if to highlight the lunacy of a ten-sentence audio book, iTunes labels the book as Unabridged.

No kidding.

    I guess if you’re just too busy to read to your kid for ten minutes, you can play the audiobook and the kid can follow along with the pictures?
    Whatever, that’s just too weird.

    Ten minutes? The audio book is only six minutes long!
