Borders in Malaysia

When we were in Malaysia last, we noticed that the Borders bookstore in Kuala Lumpur was selling books at market exchange rates which means that a US$10.00 was selling for M$35.00. Given that the incomes in Malaysia and U.S. are so different its hard to believe that the stores could sell that many books. Or could it be that they think they can make the sale because Asians value books/education more than other races? Could this post shed any light on this?

Or is this one reason why Borders is for sale?
