select ID, Title from Books where ID='500';

That will give you the current set of data to display.  Getting the previous
and next record will depend on your sort order.  Assuming ID as the sort
order, store the value of ID and query for the next record:

select ID from Books where ID > '$ID' order by ID ASC limit 1;

Previous record:

select ID from Books where ID < '$ID' order by ID DESC limit 1;

The same approach works for the Title field.
