I'm from Brazil and I want to talk a little about buying books in my country. After you finish reading this (if you want to read, of course) I'd like to hear from you as to whether it is different in your country.
I usually buy some books every year. Last year I was particularly interested in buying a hardcover book. I saw on an website from the U.S. that the paperback and hardcover versions had almost the same price. Then, I went to look for hardcover books on Brazilian websites and I realized that most books don't have a hardcover option, and when it does have it might be as much as threefold more expensive than paperback books.
People who usually buy books in Brazil often agree that they're very expensive, even the paperback version!
How is that in your country? Are books easily affordable? Is there such a huge price difference between paperback and hardcover version?
I hope to hear your opinion,
