2013/11 Book prices revised

Please note that due to system requirements of PayPal we have adjusted the prices for shipping of our smaller books. For Europe they were increased from EUR 1,50 to EUR 2,00. It is a bit unfortunate that we had to do that but in “Compensation” we have reduced the price for the same books by 1 Euro.
