not at all!^ :wink:

Hey there!
I agree with smalltowngirl :D
I am also German and I also think that "Bis(s) is a bit corny and I actually I like the American covers better...
My best (German^^) friend though loves the German cover, she actually let her mom give her the book for her birthday because she liked the cover so much. She didn't even know, what it was about. As she found out, that it is about vampires, she made her friend read it first, so that she could tell her, if the book is worth reading, lol. (Of course she said it was 8) )
I read the Twilight series in English and recently I read some of it in German - sometimes the translation definitely is terrible!! I am happy that I read it in English :-)

I mean it's nice, that they try to translate it close the the original but who who ever say that?? ;-) :roll:

The German covers are beautiful. I still love the original, but I think I will see about getting the German books... Ok, I have two reasons.. One, I want to get back into learning German, and two, they are so pretty... Anyone know a good book store in Bitburg? LOL

I like the German covers they are a little bit more appealing to the eyes, like if your walking in a store your more than likely going to look at the german cover before the one with just an apple, the apple reminds me of snow white, so I wouldn't have thought twice about the book it it hadn't been for a friend of mine.
My votes for Jacob :-)

Spanish Covers

Post by IrishPrincess76 »

Does anyone know where I can find the covers of these books in their Spanish form? Are they different than the ones here in the US?

Thanks and have a great weekend!

[quote="smalltowngirl"][quote="snow"]Does anyone here speak German?
(I do.)
I think the Bis/Biss thing is a bit corny. They should have just left it..



I speak german to, im half danish half german.

I completely agree with you, they should have left the Bis/Biss thing out... but I still prefer the german covers, I just think they are so much prettier (sorry America)

Ooooh...I love the effect of that cover. It looks nice, but the American covers are still my favorites. They're artistic, simple and gorgeous.
