“I would say thereโ€™s less of a range and it can be very expensive in Australia. Especially in bookstores. Thereโ€™s no way I could afford to spend $20+ on each book I buy. I would love to be able to support book stores more but I just canโ€™t afford to. Like I said earlier, it is harder to get approval for books on Netgalley as well.”

“There are libraries, but they have very limited resources. In my faculty library, I might find classics, books for required reading, and highly popular books. Same for my local library, except itโ€™s WAY smaller.”

“With the German Amazon and Book Depository there are almost no barriers. This doesnโ€™t apply to things like pre-order incentives or exclusive editions though. My country is excluded from those, pretty much always.”

“The only hurdles I face are related to the shipping of books in Pakistan. For example if I pre-order a book or request a book on the Readings website, it obviously takes weeks to reach our country. Even the cost of shipping is high.”
