Students Find $100 Textbooks Cost $50, Purchased Overseas

At one prestigious university, a sophomore imported 30 biology books from England this fall and sold them outside his classroom for less than the campus-bookstore price, netting a $1,200 profit. Next semester, if all goes well, he plans to expand the operation. | “The only difference is that they say `international edition’ in little print on the cover,” said the student, who added that he was not certain whether his project raised any legal issues, and therefore asked that neither he nor his college be identified. —Tamar LewinStudents Find $100 Textbooks Cost $50, Purchased Overseas (NY Times (Reg; expires))
