You can't have it both ways, either the books are "equally-priced" or you're "paying more". And if the price is different the reviews lose a lot of their validity -> take it away from books to consumer goods: cheap goods get almost always the same or better reviews even if the higher price is more than justified (and also if the cheap ones are overpriced for what they are offering).

But in general this is very interesting, thanks for posting!
