Whenever I buy books I know that the money I spend on them I have starved. This means that I save money to buy books and when I have about 50levs (2levs=1dollar/euro approximately) and I spend them all on books I know I have spend too much but still i do it! what does Rs stand for?

books are very cheap in india! this is wonderful! i wish they were as cheap here. A book in bulgaria is about 6$ at least and in englih it can hit 70$ and even some bulgarian books have the same high price! and 70$ is a half of the average monthly payment in our country. sad isnt it?

The average book costs £7.99. If it is hardback though, I've seen books retail for as much as £30 When looking for books, I usually check out charity shops and such to look for second-hand bargains. You can find a lot of literature gems at really cheap rates, as little as 10 pence even

My dream house doesn't have a kitchen but has a library lol. Libraries are great especially when you have created them all by yourself! Here there are 2nd hand stalls for books but they don't sell contemporary books and I actually pretty much enjoy modern literature because it affects more recent problems of the society.

Well, I usually buy books that are upto 500 Rs (about 10$). If a book is high priced, I usually make a Xeroxed version of the book. It is black-and-white but it saves considerable amount of money. I am a student and I buy upto 4-5 books each semester. Can be less but not more at times. Didn't buy any book this semester. I download free eBooks often that does the job.

I have noticed that books are very cheap in ur country. Here they are very expensive and a maniac like me needs 10$ to buy 1 maximum 2 books. And as a student I have to buy many books for educational purpose and I buy many for personal entertainment and that means a lot of money spent on books. Where do u find free ebooks?

Hello, I do want to spend more on books, though I spend nearly half of my current earning in books. As I am still a student and as I am an avid reader myself, I often buy books. When it doesn't fit my budget I look for an older edition, but buying seems to be an addiction in itself. Sometimes when I am in dire need but the book is out of print, then I consider downloading an Ebook instead. I usually buy engineering books but I also have a fascination for other kinds of books, literature, especially non fiction. Books here didn't cost much until recently. The government has put taxes in publication, thats what I've heard. Books have become costlier. I don't go to book fair as I think costs are unfair there. Lolzzz Take care God bless you

Half your earnings means that you are a dedicated book reader. I am a student myself and I understand how many books you are obligated to buy for lectures, courses etc. In September when a new School year starts I spend about 200$ on books (At the very least).

As a saving freak, I try to save my money and it is true that I am stingy at times, though I do not earn and can spend my father's money! Okay, I spend about 1000 Rupees a year in books as I am a member of a library that updates its books regularly and I also download the e books!

For me, i usually buy books during a book sale here in the philippines but i also read a lot from ebooks since i really love reading. I also installed an application on my phone that lets me read books while im outside the house or while in the mall since it's in my phone. It's really handy especially when you're waiting for someone or you're passing some time alone and want some quiet time outside the house and you don't have a book with you :)
