: : Hello,
: : Is there any nuance difference between "The price for this book is 20 dollars." and "The price of this book is 20 dollars."? Which is often used in english speaking countries? Thank you for your help.

: There's no difference. Both sentences are used. The second one is probably used more often.

In the UK, we would say, the price of this book is 20 pounds. I would have thought that in the usa, they say, "the price for this book is 20 dollars."
