What's the point of buying books?

Once I found the first hidden book, a bunch more book icons popped up on my radar. What use is collecting books? I know that there's an achievement for getting all of them, and I get a few coins for grabbing them, but is there any other effect on the game for finding more of them before I finish the game?

  • Ah, I read the title and thought that question just covered book shopping, and not book finding. My apologies if that's the consensus.

  • Yeah, the books you find work out exactly like the books you buy, no real use other than achievements and getting 100%. Commented Dec 17, 2011 at 0:49
