Concerning textbooks

After my Latin exam today and the customary post-exam destress with the other students, I swung by the text book shop to pick up my text for next semester, vol. 4 of the Aeneid.

For $78, I was expecting something with gilded pages and a solid silver cover. It went something like this:

Me: *looks at Latin texts. Spies vol. 4 of Aeneid*

Vol. 4 of the Aeneid: *teeny tiny thin paperback*

Me: El wtf? o_O

I checked the booklist for Latin again, and it was indeed the book I needed. So, to recap: I paid nearly eighty dollars for a thin paperback thing. Yes, the cashier seemed quite baffled by it too.
