Hmm. I can get a manga (one volume-about 4-5chs of 30-40 pages) for about 8 dollars,( no tax-with ta it goes to more like 9-10) here in the west coast of the United states. An ebook version would be about... 7 dollars (with tax it moves closer to 8). Not that much of a difference, but if you want to buy in bulk... I typically purchase the ebooks, just because I have no space for the hard copies (even though those are what I like more).
In Latvia we don't have any hardcovers and we've got only tankoubons (but already that is progress since in bookstores manga appeared only 'bout 2-3 years ago) and they cost on average 9,50 euros. I think it varies on the series, but overall the prices are from 7, 85 till 'bout 17€
Also, they're in English, forget about translations to Latvian. Just happy there's any at all, but is pretty expensive
