Deseret Book, Christmas 1944

By: Ardis E. Parshall - December 05, 2012

Many of these books are still available, or at least still on our shelves or the shelves of parents … don’t the prices for new books (hardbacks all!) just kill you?

From the Liahona, 26 December 1944 —





  1. Interesting that the Discourses were more expensive than either the Articles of Faith or Jesus the Christ. Maybe that’s just my personal bias. I’ve loved the latter for years, and have a hard time getting through the Discourses. Of course, they are all now free online, so I know that price isn’t an indication of their worth.

  2. This list gives some credibility to Given’s comment that the current DB catalog is “an intellectual wasteland.”

  3. What is entertaining is when people assume these are still the prices!

  4. Heh, heh! Probably more entertaining to you grumbling with colleagues in private than when you’re dealing with such customers!
