in thread PBP in German out of print - solutions?

If you're looking at a cost of EUR 100 per hour, the quoted prices on Amazon suddenly look favourable. Spending EUR 54, EUR 85 and EUR 2xx on three books doesn't sound that expensive then.

    And what if I need more books?

    edit

    These prices for used books are calculated by bots, as soon as one is sold the other ones will rise. There is the famous story of a scientific book which was offered for 2 million dollars.

      Maybe just buy all books below EUR 100 to see whether there pops up a new offer once the "only one" book has been sold.

        I'll try as soon our bureaucracy allows buying used books ...

      That's hilarious. If you read to the end of the article, the price eventually went up to 23 million before someone intervened. If you think about it, this is a bit similar to the count-to-infinity problem encountered in network routing.
