I can't find this information anywhere in the iTunes music store. How much space does a 4-5 hour audiobook take up on an iPod?

Depending on the bit-rate/length of the novel, I've seen them take from as little as 250megs, to 1 gig...

They usually average from 300mb to 700mb.

Huh. I'm trying to decide whether or not to get Philip K Dick's 'Galactic Pot Healer' but I'm not sure if I want to spend the space on it. It's like a five hour book. I wish they'd give a dang size of the file, you know?

If you buy it from Audible.com, you'll have different options for the audiobook. They let you choose between quality and file size.

Really? Oh, that's pretty cool. I'm going to check that out.
