Synonyms of "Book" and their differences

Q: He has many books. ve He has some books. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: To me it is the same.BUT some books that mean about what kind of book. or you can say He has a lot of/lots of books.this sentence sounds natural
Q: This book is dedicated to my mother. ve This book is a homage to my mother. arasındaki fark nedir?
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: The further you read the book ve The more you read the book arasındaki fark nedir?
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: Take the book on the table. ve Grab the book on the table. arasındaki fark nedir?
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: book price ve book prices ve books price ve books prices arasındaki fark nedir?
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.

Other questions about "Book"

Q: Recently I, when I was looking for a book, found the dictionary which I had lost. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: × Recently I, when I was looking for a book, found the dictionary which I had lost.
✓ Recently, when I was looking for a book, I found the dictionary, which I had lost.

"Recently, when I was looking for a book, I found the dictionary, which I had lost."
If this is a non-restrictive sentence, use "which" and set it off with a comma, meaning that this information isn't essential to the meaning. (By the way, this is the dictionary I had lost)
"Recently, when I was looking for a book, I found the dictionary that I had lost."
If it is a restrictive sentence, use "that" and omit the comma, meaning that this information is important to the sentence. (I have several dictionaries, but this one I found is the one I found)
This is advanced grammar and you may not be up to this level. I think the first way I corrected it is the way you want. Also, I might consider "while I was looking", instead of "when". It sounds better.

Q: I'm reading a book called 〇〇. I wanted to read its Japanese version, but I thought I couldn’t get one. Today I was looking for another book at the library and happened to find the Japanese version of 〇〇. I was surprised to find that what I wanted was close by. It was little things, but it made me happy. bu doğru görünüyor mu?
A: Sounds good. One thing to fix: "It was little things". 'Things' is plural so it makes it sound like there were other things that happened before this event as well.

If you talking about only one event, remove the 's' from 'things' and add an 'a':

"It was a little thing" or "It was a small thing"
