Although oddly enough, after 15 years on international internet intermessage interboards.... sorry, got caught in a loop there. After 15 years, I do find myself using a variety of foreign phrases. "Glove box" is so much shorter and easier than "glove compartment." "Bonnet" is easier than "Convertible top." I find myself using "Y'all" for casually addressing someone (and I HATE southern accents).
Doesn't excuse the book, of course.
