The following question was kindly answered by Dr. Takim.

Ummulbanin Merali -Acting Moderator - 'Aalim Network
I request that this question be answered according to both the Resalah of
Ayatuallah Seestani, and Marhum Ayatuallah Gulpaygani.
What is the Masail on khums relating to the purchase of audio cassette
tapes? If I buy a set of Qur'an on tape (30 tapes) and only listen to
10, and my Khums date comes up, do I pay Khums on the remaining 20 I
have not listened to yet?
I have purchased over 100 cassette tapes from a Muslim Brother with
various Duas, Majalis, etc.. on them. 
Must I pay Khums on these tapes, if I don't listen to them all within
one year?

Would this same rule apply to books, if you buy (for example) 10 books,
and only read 2 of them within the year, do you then pay khums on the
remaining books, or can you read one page, and then your khums is "not
applicable" on that item since it has been used atleast once in the year??

How 'far' must we go in the issue of Khums - are these types of questions
going too deep into the Islamic Laws, or are these valid questions??

Since you have bought a set of tapes, having listened to some of them (and
presumably you will be listening to the others) means that you do not have
to pay khums on the rest  especially as they are treated as one set of
tapes. You do not have to listen to all of them in one year.

Similarly, if you buy a new set of books, if you have read some of them and
intend to read others you do not have to pay khums on them. 

As far as as the question of going too deep is  concerned, I can only say
when in doubt please ask.

And Allah knows best
