The book buying business is getting tougher for consumers who like their British imports: The recent Rebecca Tope is a fine example. A paperback copy of Death in the Cotswolds costs 6.99 British pounds as did her earlier A Cotswold Killing. A Cotswold Killing sold here in the US for $9.95 while Death in the Cotswolds has come in with a US price of $15.95.
And don't bother to run out and hope to find A Cotswold Killing at 9.95 anymore. That price too has risen to $15.95.
Thanks to the current English exchange rate, we are getting royally pounded.
