Harry Potter editions across the pond

Ugh. But whatever.

The US editions have always had more pages.

The actual differences (wow!) couldn’t possibly contribute anything significant to that difference, either way.

Apparently it’s because they use a bigger font, more whitespace, and have a picture at the beginning of every chapter. (?!)

A source here (Yahoo answers), complete with embarrassingly stupid answers.

Other sources are here and here (same thing), and other possible reasons (generally speaking) include these.

There, now I can close those tabs…
