In this year Italians and French people disbursed 50 and 55 million respectively for the same purpose. Austrian people spent less than 30 million which was lower than half of the Germans spending for books. After 2 years, spending by those nationalities for purchasing books increased. In 1999, the expenditure by Germans for books reached to 90 million while it was 60 and 50 million for French and Italian. Expenses on books for Austrian remained the same as it was in 1995.
