Textbooks in the US are indeed expensive imo

During my stay in the US I had a chance to take classes at a nearby university, so I went to a used bookstore and bought a textbook.

A used textbook costs a whopping 100$

After I came back to my country, I found the same textbook in bookstores near my house.

The same textbook costs around 50$ in my country - and that's the price of it being sold NEW. A translated one costs around the same as well.

wtf


The irony that a used textbook is sold at a higher price than a new one sold in a different country.
