I thought I'd see if I could find a lower price in the Euro zone, or a price
outside that would correspond to a lower price.

I used kelkoo.co.uk first, then tried their service in other regions. Here's
what I found:

  United Kingdom: 23.75 GBP (~34 EUR)
  Apparently, shipping would be free if the price was over 25 GBP. :-(
  Otherwise, it appears that delivery to Europe is 7.95 GBP (~11 EUR)!

  Norway: 297 NOK (~38 EUR)
  Shipping appears to be free (within Norway, I suppose), but that may depend
  on my interpretation of the word "fraktfritt"!

The first price shouldn't include any tax. I'm not certain what the situation
is with tax on books in Norway, so I don't know if the price is inclusive of
tax or not.
