Ugh. But whatever.

The US editions have always had more pages.

The actual differences (wow!) couldn’t possibly contribute anything significant to that difference, either way.

Apparently it’s because they use a bigger font, more whitespace, and have a picture at the beginning of every chapter. (?!)

A source here (Yahoo answers), complete with embarrassingly stupid answers.

Other sources are here and here (same thing), and other possible reasons (generally speaking) include these.

There, now I can close those tabs…
