Well, it's hard to argue that books in general are ever going to be in short supply. I think the point was that trying to find a specific book can become increasing difficult, and I think that's equally hard to argue. Try, for instance, to find Carroll John Daly. You can find a few re-printed shorts, and there have been three or four books re-printed in the last twenty years or so. But that's about it. Anything other than those few things will cost hundreds or thousands of dollars (U.S.), and Daly just ain't worth it. Perhaps when I'm rich and famous...
