So this week I am REALLY excited by my book haul! Last week I was visiting a blog when I saw the GORGEOUS new set of Harry Potter books that have just been released and I just HAD to have them! My excuse is that my original Harry paperbacks are well read so I'm allowed to buy a new set...and they are just so pretty! My inner book slut cannot resist!

    1. Possible excuses:
      1-my copies are a little worn
      2-by buying these I might persuade JK to write prequels about the the Marauders at school and the battle between the Order and the Death Eaters that lead to the death of Lily and James
      3-Voldemort threatened me if I don't buy them

  3. I love the new Harry Potter covers! I have the whole series in the original hardcovers and a new paperback set that was released here last year. And I have them on audiobook. I'm a bit of a fan.

    Happy reading!

    1. I'm right with you Kim! I have the original paperback(childrens cover) and hardback(adult) series, the audio cds by Stephen Fry and half of the US paperback series which I'm trying to complete. It's a darn addiction!

    1. You can never have too much Harry...! Mind you all my Harry Potter books take up half of a bookcase which is a problem!

  5. I want to get the HP copies too since I read it on an E-Reader... But then I think I'll spend that money on books that I haven't read yet :P

    1. There is also a cool map of the Hogwarts grounds in the book and the back cover is illustrated with something from the book. I keep picking the books up and looking at them!
