Apparently to shaft non-dutch readers? :)  Essentially I think that it's
mostly to do with the shipping costs.  They're generally 2-4x as much, and
when they come in through a brick and mortar operation, it seems as if
there's a surcharge on pretty much anything published in another language.

Makes it sort of difficult to find things to read, that's for sure!  (I
can buy a novel for 8eu if I want to read it in dutch, or 12-14eu for the
same in english . . .)
