The Friday Face-Off is a new meme created by Books by Proxy, where the idea is to compare the UK and US covers of a book with each week being a certain theme, this week’s theme is: Drink – Ho ho ho! To the bottle I go…
I had an absolute nightmare with this theme and found it to be a right pain in the proverbial ass, suffice to say that I almost gave up on finding a cover! Now, I am sure that there will be those of you out there who can reel of a list and would say but this book and that book have a drink/glasses/bottle on the covers and I’m sure that there are millions and millions of books out there I couldn’t think of any, not a damn one – I know, woe is me! 😦
But then, I had a brain storm and it hit me, thinking “but Drew, you are a proper English gentleman, now surely you know another proper English gent that enjoys a tipple and I did, James Bond!” Luckily after searching Google for Bond cover books I came across one that actually had a drink in a glass on it and while I might very well be stretching the credulity of the theme this week, it is my choice! 🙂
For the theme this week I have chosen: For Your Eyes Only (James Bond Original Series #8) by Ian Fleming.
Cover E (The one that fits the theme):
I don’t have a clue!!!!! I don’t particularly like any of the covers and thus am abstaining from picking any!!!!! 🙂
Thoughts?? Agree?? Disagree?? Any opinion welcome!!
AND OF COURSE, AN EARLY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL! 🙂
