Amazon prices

So, I wanted to order some English-language books. Obviously, Amazon.com is the first choice. I selected the books I wanted (Absolute Sandman Vol. 3 and Spook Country), but then I thought: "Hold on, what about shipping costs? Perhaps Amazon.co.uk is cheaper?"
Turns out that Absolute Sandman Vol. 3 is USD 60 on Amazon.com, and GBP 50 on Amazon.co.uk. The price difference is about USD 30 (or EUR 22 if you convert to euros).

WTF is up with that? It's the exact same book!?
