40 freaking dollars? It's not even 400 pages! This is looking like one of those books people buy to say they have it so I guess they're trying to squeeze as much money out of people as possible. Sheesh. If I get around to wanting to read it before the paperback comes out off to Amazon I'll go I guess.

I had another similar expensive book experience the other day. I bought Infinite Jest for $10 and along with that Lolita which is probably 1/10th as big for $15. I know the size of a book doesn't determine how much it'll cost but man, that stung.
