The Price of Books

The price of books is nothing short of incredulous!

If you are after a publication other than the inane and shallow ramblings of Katie Price or other non entities who churn out uninteresting "celebrity" autobiographies on the back of appearing in the Daily Star once, it would appear you have to be prepared to suck your teeth and re-mortgage the house.

I would not mind if the book was concerning a popular topic but "Building the Post War World" is hardly going to be appearing on the top of everyones "must read" list!

So refusing to hand over 35 quid to invest in this riveting read, I have decided to borrow The Tardis take my 35 quid to post war Britain and rebuild it myself. the added benefit of this being I will probably still have some monies left over for a Big Mac on my way back to 2010!

Happy Days and a Happy New Year!

  1. Unfortunately, for anything other than a mass market book that is probably a fair price if the publishers are going to cover their costs and hopefully pay the author. If you think about it though, that's only the same as a couple of new dvds that you'd watch in an evening and then stick on the shelf. I'd rather have a book that will give me hours of pleasure reading it for that money, I think.

    Happy New Year to you too!
