Prices can vary depending upon where in the world you are located. Different locations require different prices due to local laws and which publisher has the publishing rights for that area of the world.

If you are looking at Amazon.com prices, you are seeing the US prices. When you click, the billing price is your local price based on your country/IP address.

The "Prime members read for free" means that US customers who have a paid Prime membership can BORROW the book for free; it is not free for them to purchase.

"Read for free" means just that. They READ the book for free; they don't get to keep it.

The $3.99 version is 2013 published
The $2.99 version is 2012 published and is in the German language

The actual charge amount is influenced by local, international, and, possibly, VAT taxes. The order invoice will detail the charges.

Others have explaind the Prime "free read" info.

and they're both priced the same for French customers: $4.04 with VAT

and I like the Collins and Merriam-Webster versions

It matters because prices depend on national laws, to a large extent. Different nations have different laws, and that's not likely to change any time soon, internet or no internet.

What you want is a global free trade agreement :-) Until then, when you're buying from an international location you need to doublecheck the price.

The recommendations are there because you might like the BOOK; it is not the job of the program to determine if you're going to like the price. All it does is alert you to titles that you might enjoy.
