I want an Audible Student Discount

I love audiobooks. Unfortunately, Audible is $15 a month which is far too expensive for a college student like me. I’m proposing to Amazon that they give a student discount. I’m sending them an email with this idea, as follows:

As both a college student and a lover of story I read a lot. Scratch that, I try to read a lot. I have a minor case of dyslexia so books can take a long time to work through. If I’m reading a book unassisted I can usually get through 15-20 pages before my brain starts aching and I fall asleep atop my book.  As a college student I am required to read a heavy load of very dense material which can be very hard on me. It also makes it near impossible for me to enjoy any books aside from what I have assigned. With audiobooks it’s a breeze; I read along with them and my brain is positively peppy. My next book that I plan on reading is Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. Unfortunately I was assigned over 50 pages of reading yesterday. Making it impossible to attempt both.

Let me make this clear, I cannot afford $15 a month. I’m working very hard to pay for my own education and to complete that education. That being said, I crave reading. I miss exploring uncharted waters with pirates and flying above Elizabethan London with Peter Pan. I miss the feeling of anticipation when you don’t know what’s going to happen next. I miss stories. I miss books. I have not read a book during school time in 3 years. It would make me unfathomably happy to reread The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (He narrated it too!) or A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket (Read by the incomparable Tim Curry).
I propose a student discount, maybe down to $7 or $8 a month. I also like the idea of giving students a couple extra redemption points around the start of the semester for their school books. My roommate is having to simultaneously get through Beowulf and A Passage To India, both incredibly dense. She plans to grow up and write, and she doesn’t have time to read. 
I love that amazon gives student discounts. It’s one of the many things that makes going to college just a little bit more bearable. I emplore you to consider my request.
Sincerely,
Jack Paterson

still laughing about yesterday during gender/sexuality studies class when our professor had everyone chant “VAGINA! PENIS! VAGINA!” a few times to make us more comfortable with saying those terms

and this girl just stands up slowly and says “…this… this isn’t math class…”

Is there a joke here that 15 thousand people get but I don’t?
