Let's put this in perspective. My four day trip to NYC cost $900. That's everything from airfare, the hotel in Times Square, food, four shows, and miscellaneous spending like subway fares and such. My latest batch of textbooks cost over $500...of those were over a hundred each. I like the comment on jax.com about the international version...but the State could stop charging me sales tax on my educational necessities.
