There even are places where English completely disappears; in America they haven’t used it for years. — Professor Henry Higgins, My Fair Lady
In last week’s FridayFive, I recommended Ben Aaronovitch’s Rivers of London. But some readers wrote back to say they had trouble finding it because in the States it not only has a different title, but a different cover as well.
I know from buying both versions of the Harry Potter books that this is a “thing”. My question is, does it work? So for today’s Friday Five Challenge, I’m departing from the usual format to take a poll.
This week, you make the buy/pass decision. Based solely on the covers above, which would you buy and which would be a pass for each pair of covers?
