Well, I am an international student, and so natcherly I'd like to get my hands on some international edition books, because I simply cannot afford to buy $50 books plus $25 shipping (and $50 is cheap for a textbook too!). Really, $50 to $100 is roughly my entire book budget for a semester, and ofcourse I need several books per semester. If I can't get a copy at a bookstore or 2nd hand, I try abebooks or alibris, but, and here's my problem and the point of this long-winded thread: first-world students buy all the international editions! Yeah, you all know what I'm talking about. Those international editions are meant for, well,...International Students! We simply cannot afford to pay what Americans pay for their books. America is by far the richest nation on Earth. My family is in the middle class of my country, but in America we would be considered lower class, or lower middle class at best. I think it extremely unfair that American students, who can buy American edition books, second hand even, at a price that would seem cheap to them, but instead they buy international edition books, which they find extraordinarily cheap, but for someone like me, I still find the international edition (IE) books quite expensive. As a result, abebooks and alibris never stock IE books, since they've all been bought by Americans! I hope you can see things as I experince them. I know most people will take this as a personal attack, because that's just the way people are. But I hope you see how frustrating and difficult it is for international students like myself.
