By now, you probably have some sort of knowledge of the cost of book purchases.
The more expensive the book, the more valuable the book is.
It’s why bookshops, online bookstores, and book fairs all offer discounts.
For a price book, you can expect to get the same book for half the price.
But, is that worth it?
And what about when you’re looking for something a bit more affordable?
And if you’re interested in the history of the world, how does it compare?
In the early 1990s, the book price of the average American was $6.95 per page.
By 2000, that figure had fallen to $3.60 per page, but has since rebounded to $2.00 per page and is now at $1.00.
In this infographic from the Library of Congress, the US dollar is the most popular currency, and this chart shows how that has changed over the past few decades.
And the price of a book can go up or down based on what you buy it for.
That’s because of the supply and demand in the book market.
If you buy a book for $6 and then sell it for $3 later, you will get more for your money.
If, however, you buy that book for a much higher price, you’ll get less for your dollar.
What is the best price to buy a new book?
In terms of how much you can afford to spend, there are two basic types of books.
There are books that are highly sought after, like the best-sellers and best-selling authors.
Then there are books, like great new releases and classic classics, that are worth a little more than $1, but that aren’t a big seller.
If this sounds confusing, it’s because the price you’re paying will affect how much more you can buy for.

And if that doesn’t make sense, the Library also has a handy chart that shows the current best-seller price and how much it has gone up or fallen since it was last updated.
You can also find a list of the most recent bestsellers here.
