    Izsilstvo

    Zakaj se knjige prodajajo s pridatkom izsiljevalskih cen? Sploh obstaja razlaga za ta trend? Res ne vem. Ampak bistvo zadeve je, da so knjige, izdane v Sloveniji, preprosto predrage, da bi jih normalen človek sploh upošteval in kupil. Potem se pa čudimo, da trg s knjigami pada na kamnita tla. Halo!

    No pa prikažimo en primerček. Pred nedavnim sem bil prisiljen kupiti slovensko knjigo, ki je sicer bila za pomembno oceno, ampak kakorkoli. Bila je to Pimlico napisana od gospoda Dekleve. Ampak kaj je sedaj to? Koliko me je stala uboga 161 stranska žepnica? 14,56€? Kaj! Še sanja se mi ne. Vem pa, da me je knjiga naročena iz amerike, s poštnino, knjigarniško provizijo, lokalnim davkom, priznane avtorice in svetovna uspešnica stala ubogih 7€. ÄŒe vas res zanima je bila to Memnoch the Devil od Anne Rice (434 strani).

    Zakaj vraga torej obstaja ta razlika, ko je to tako očitno perverzno? Knjiga, izdana v mojem lastnem mestu, stane dvakrat toliko kot knjiga z druge strani sveta! Kaj ni nikjer pravice, občutka za realnost, ali smo pač kot narod tako zabiti, da smo pripravljeni toliko plačati za kurčevo knjigo?
