    A scandal particularly with programming books. When you consider that the 'classic' programming books are bought by millions of students all over the world every year... theres no excuse for the 40-50 price tag.

    They're really expensive here too ( France ) due to heavy taxes... That's why I'm damaging my already poor eyesight, reading stuff I download on Kazaa!

    Exactly, you'd think they'd realise that people will not pay the prices and are finding other means of reading them.

    Well, if you did something illegal, they wouldn't try to understand... Just sue you and send you to jail or whatever...
    They are the Government, they can't be wrong, can they?

    My books tend to be older paperbacks from the charity shops

    ....although as a stereotypically tight yorkshireman, I do think 25 pence is extortionate!

    Yes, libraries still exist but I don't like to go there ( too much people, too much noise...), books are in an horrible state ( missing pages, someone wrote in it...) or somebody has just borrowed the book I wanted... Plus I like to have my own books!
