Books are becoming more and more expensive

Perma-link for article:

One of my most admired authors Ruskin Bond, who is a Britisher but came back to India after 3 years in ‘cold and rainy Britain’ and eventually settled down near Mussorie in the midst of hills and greenery, and has now turned 83 years young.

He has just written his autobiography ‘Lone Fox Dancing’, which is priced at Rs. 599/-. I don’t mind investing the money, but I hesitate because after I have read it once, no one else would benefit from it. If I lend it to a friend, it will not come back (you know that well, I suppose) and the person would not even read it. Books are becoming more and more expensive. I have more than 4,000 of them in our library, which I want to share with others. But there are no takers.
