The line graph compares four different nations, namely Germany, France, Italy and Austria in terms of the sum of money spent on books from 1995 to 2005.
Overall, there was an upward trend in the total amount of money used for buying books in four countries. It is also noticeable that Germany had its citizens spending the largest amount of money for this purpose over the span of a decade.
From the outset of the study period, in 1995, the expenditure on books by Germans was by far the highest, at 80 millions (US dollars). Meanwhile, the figure stood at about 57 millions in France, 50 millions in Italy and 30 millions in Austria. From then on, all expenses of purchases of books in four nations rose, with the most dramatic growth being seen in Germany and Austria.
Around 2001, the amount of money allocated to books in Austria commenced to soar, overtaking that in Italy prior to 2003, whereas the corresponding sum in Germany dipped before rising again at roughly the same time. By 2005, the figure for Germany had grown to approximately 95 millions, remaining the largest figure. On the other hand, the spending on books in France, Austria and Italy were only around 72, 71 and 61 millions respectively.
