Right. The price for a paperback holds steady at 25 cents for ten years. Ten years later, it's three times as much due to what: inflation, paper costs, distribution? (Isn't McFadden the same publisher of the women's confessional magazines? I'm reading a 1971 paperback reprint published by McFadden-Bartell
(MB). Was MaFadden one of the B-list paperback publishers?)
