Synonyms of "Book" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between This book is dedicated to my mother. and This book is a homage to my mother. ?
A: Dedicate would be like saying you did it for that person. I wrote this book for/because of my mom. Homage is like you are remembering or showing respect to her memory. Homage is normally used only for that which no longer exists.
Q: What is the difference between The further you read the book and The more you read the book ?
A: "Further" is a word that is associated with distance. More = "もっと". You can't literally travel distance by reading a book, so saying "the further you read the book" doesn't make a lot of sense. If you say "the further you get into the book", that is talking about how much you have read. Does that help?
Q: What is the difference between Take the book on the table. and Grab the book on the table. ?
A: Both are really the same, but I guess "take" implies you'll be keeping it. "Take the book on the table back home." "Grab" could mean you'll have it for a short time. "Grab the book on the table and give it to me."
Q: What is the difference between book price and book prices and books price and books prices ?
A: "Book price" is singular - so only one price.
"Book prices" is plural - so more than one price.

"Is this book price correct?"
"The book prices all have to be changed."

"Books price" and "books prices" are not correct, because "book" is modifying "price" and doesn't change. If you're talking about the price of the book or books, that would be "book's price" and "books' prices".

"Is this book's price correct?"
"The books' prices are all wrong."

Do you see the difference between the first set of sentences and the second set?

"Is this book price correct?"
"Is this book's price correct?"

They are different ways of saying the same thing, but the subject of the sentence is different. In the first sentence, the subject is the price, and so we talk about "the book price". In the second, it is the book, and so we talk about "the book's price" - that is, the price which belongs to the book.
