What is the life time of a CD/DVD drive?

I'm converting my audiobooks on CD to something that I an play on my iPhone. This means that I have to read a lot of CDs, the average audiobook has about 10 CDs.

I noticed that, after reading about 5000 CDs, the drives start to give me read errors until they would not recognize any CD inserted into the drive any more.

What kind of life do I have to expect from a CD drive? Is 5000 CDs a lot or little?
