It’s no secret around here that I loooooove Harry Potter. If you haven’t figured that out by now…you haven’t been paying attention.
It’s even worse lately, since we got back from Universal and I started rereading the series. I’ve been obsessed, really.
One thing I’ve realized is that borrowing the books is not enough. I am going to HAVE to buy them, and soon. Every time I go into a used book store, I look at all the different copies…but I really don’t want used ones. I need matched perfect copies that are going to last repeated uses. Because you know I’m going to read these babies over and over and over every year.
I just have to.
A curfew has been placed on book purchases for the remainder of the year and you are only allowed to purchase TEN more books for the rest of 2014. Which books will you buy?
Honestly? I don’t have that difficult of a choice here. My top ten books that I really NEED to buy and haven’t are the full set of Harry Potter books. I’ve just been reading them on Kindle Unlmited and I can’t believe I don’t own them yet. I’ve been seeing the new UK editions that everyone is posting and they are GORGEOUS.
The other three are also simple. Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles, including the 2.5 novella coming out in October.
Must haves that I need in brand new hardcovers. I could never have them in used copies (although I do have HP #6 in a used hardcover because it was free and I couldn’t resist). I must have them in matching editions.
