Sell house, buy books!

Wednesday, 29th June 2005

Vibhu points out that you can “fill that big gap in your bookshelf” with Amazon’s offer of “The Penguin Classics Library Complete Collection.”

Well, the offer, along with shipping, costs $8,001.97 – that is INR348,461.14! At this price, each of the 1082 titles on offer comes at INR322.05 – way too high for classics where copyright has lapsed and no author royalties are involved. This would be a good deal at maybe a tenth of this cost. Anything more isn’t really worth it.

However, if you are the type that insists on nothing less that a complete collection, you might have to sell your house, or at least a part of it!
