"I put the other photos in a box if you want to bring them with you. There are some fantastic ones of you and London."I've taken this example from page 345, but Nicholas Sparks used "bring" consistently where I would say "take." If I wanted a book that a child had (for instance), I would say, "Bring me the book." But Sparks used the word "bring" when he wanted that book to go in the other direction. If, for example, a character had a book to give the mother, he might say to the child:
"That would be great."
I went to the closet and retrieved the box. ... "I'll put this in the trunk," I said.
"Here, bring this book to your mother across the room."Is this a regional thing? How do you use these two words?
