    I understand that there’s less of a demand for them than non-jewish books but you can get a classic mon jewish book for $-34 and jewish ones are close to $20.

    Buy used.

    It’s the same story whether the book was bought new or used.

    Where do they sell them and that doesn’t explain why they are so much more expensive.

    You answered your own question.

    There’s less demand. Therefore they print less. Therefore they cost more to print. Therefore they need to change more to make the business work.

    Jewish store owners have to make a living. So do the publishers, distributors, and author.

    Amazon Prime allows you to download to a Kindle (or other reader) a modest selection of “appropriate” books for Jewish kids at a lower cost than purchasing hard copies. The current choices are limited but hopefully will expand as more authors/jewish publihers are willing to put their works online. Adocs has it right….pricing ia entirely a function of supply and demand but hopefully electronic downloads will substantially lower the costs of distribution.

    If they are not worth the money, don’t buy them.
