  sql = 'insert into book(title,author,price,pages,publisher,edition,status) values ( "' + \
       title + '","' + author+'",'+price+','+pages+',"'+publisher+'","'+edition+'","available");'
   #sql2 = 'insert into transaction(dot,qty,type) values ("'+str(today)+'",'+qty+',"purchase");'
  for _ in range(0,copies):
  print('\n\nNew Book added successfully')
