All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

The "books" and/or "materials" expense/income items are commonly found in the 990 filings of Scientology secular fronts.
Most books and materials are bought from Bridge Publications, Inc., ("BPI") and/or New Era Publications International ("NEPI") (both publishing entities are integrated auxiliaries of the Church of Scientology International), which publishing entities in turn pay royalties do Church of Spiritual Technology, also a religious organization.
This is made clear from these statements from Association for Better Living and Education ("ABLE") to the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") in 1993:
All books will be published by Bridge Publications (English language editions) or New Era Publications (foreign language editions), two publishing companies of the Scientology religion. In special circumstances unrelated commercial publishers may publish certain books. Any royalties due from book sales will be paid by the appropriate publisher.
ABLE, in turn, will be the sole distributor of the books and educational materials. It will provide them to both the international and local social-betterment organizations, to the trade (if appropriate), and to interested individuals and other organizations.

The amounts are taken from expense and income items marked as "books," and from Part I/line 10 of the 990 filings. Figures in U.S. dollars. There are probably more revenue from books and/or materials which are not reported here, as only the items unambiguously described as books and/or materials are reported here.
