I was thinking the other day about how the book titles are diffrent in the UK and America although we speak the same language, for Example we all Know that The first Harry Potter book in the UK is the Philosophers Stone and in the USA is The Sorcers Stone.

So I thought I would do the difference between some UK and USA book titles, when I was looking at the names I was surprised about the number that have been changed, that where by Agatha Christie So I thought I would just do a list of her books, there is one book, And Then There Were None, was not called that when it first came out, if you want to know more, read here

Here are the UK and USA titles of the same Agathe Christie books

So there you have it all the books apart from one which have a different title in the UK, as the USA. I was thinking when these books where written there was a lack of instant communication between the USA and the UK. With no one being able to think there would be a thing called bookblogging or Booktube, so will the be less changes to book titles in future?
