I'm anticipating a group reading of this book, hosted by Tom (Wuthering Expectations), some time in the first quarter 2012. Borrowing from the library is not an option. I haven't seen a decent library since college. Used bookshops are also out of the question. I live in the province and the number of passable bookshops is ... nil. So I have to buy the books (online or in stores in Manila), or swap them, which is also like buying since I pay for the shipping.
Another factor that would influence my choice is the pricing. When comparing book prices, the two default sites I visit are:
The Book Depository - Based in UK, this seller is sent by heaven because the cost of shipping to many countries is FREE! Never mind that they sold
BookFinder.com - another heaven sent site. It's particularly useful when finding out of print titles.
I'm inclined toward getting the Zenith version. It could prove to be the most disquieting.
The most disquieting discovery I made however is this. Copies going for almost a thousand dollars.
