Nice one

We're doing hard and soft backs in gryffindor
Nice.
I used to think I was far too practical to ever own more than 1 copy of each book, but I made an exception for PS because my early edition is s(p)ellotaped after my family friends ripped the spine and it's very battered/yellow :( . I then got sucked into buying the Ravenclaw PS and all the subsequent illustrated editions to date. Space is an issue, so much so that I've (reluctantly) been converted to ebooks , but I'm going to keep collecting the illustrated ones because they're so beautiful and I actually prefer reading them to the original editions now :)

I have a few sets that I bought many years ago - the originals, the US editions in hard over and the deluxe editions, plus I've been collecting the illustrated versions. I also have the adult covers in a paperback boxset because I found it really cheap somewhere, they're the ones I lend to people if they want to read them. I haven't been collecting new editions because one row of my bookshelf is already taken up with the above, can't justify the space or really the expense. I'll need to downsize at some stage.

If any HP fans out there would like to give Werewolf a crack (it's basically like the party game Mafia) - I'm running a Harry Potter themed one :)

Picked up prisoner hb and sb in gryffindor editon
Quoting myself, always floggish looking, but ive noticed that they alternate the colours.
So in Gryffindor editions HB of Philosopher is black while SB is red, they then alternate with HB being red for Chamber but black in SB


Its the little things....

It appears as though they've moved pottermore.com to wizardingworld.com and your old logins don't work. But from what I've read if you re-register with the email you used on Pottermore you can access your old details.

Chamber of Secrets was on TV last night . It's my least favourite HP book but one of my favourite early movies. I forgot how creepy the spiders were - and I'm not even an arachnophobe.

Does what House you belong to match your personality?

I'd argue No, as I got lumbered with the House I felt the least inclined towards....But who am I to argue with the sorting hat?
