If its in the bookstore for me its illegal because all book in the bookstore must sell in same price as on the book sell it if in the book store but if if in out of bookstore they should sell it with the same price like on the book too or a little bit lower than the bookstore.

like the place I sometimes buy the manga they sell it with the lower price lets say in dollar the actual price manga in our country is 1.6 U$ (manga in my country is cheap) and the place I sometimes buy would sell it 1 $ or 1.3 $ depends on the manga, if its the new arrival they will sell it a little bit lower than the actual price and the other manga will sell it lower than the new arrival. not just manga the other book like magazines, novels, and newspaper. hey sell it with lower price than the actual price

I'm pretty sure it's legal. It's retail, and covering the costs of shipping, shelf-time and space...which could have been taken up by something else that earns more money and sells more quickly, extra fees the sellers might need to pay off, and things of that sort. There will always be the stores too, that overcharge out of greed.

Easy solution: just don't buy it (you have a brain, you have a choice)

There are times however, like supporting that favorite little comic book shop, that I would pay the price even at a few dollars more.

...not sure why people are being so negative against the bookstore, the person didn't even say how much more over the MSRP the bookstore was charging and at the end of the day the bookstore is looking to make a profit, not provide you with a niche product.

On a side note, the comic book store where I usually get my mange typically sells it for $.50~1 over the MSRP, but they also give a 10% discount on stuff you have ordered so it balances out.
