I've always wanted a boxed set of Harry Potter, however every time I ask my mum if she will buy it for me for my birthday she would straight out deny me of it. I've read each and every one of these books over a thousand times, always having to borrow them from the library, yet I can never get bored of them. Each and every time I finish reading the last book, I feel an empty spot in my heart, even thinking or writing about makes me miss it tremendously and I tend to read the series all over again. Back to the library it is for me.

More than worth the money. This set will go down as the most popular series in the history of books. Each book has a special place in myt heart as I have them all at least 3 times. This set coming all together in a collectors trunk was a perfect addition to my collection. Every person should read this series. Peopl often bad mouth it without even trying one. If they read any one out of the series they will be spell bound and want to read them all. MUCH better than the movies!

When I first saw this I thought, "who is it for? Everyone who wants Harry Potter will already have it." But then I realized kids are still growing up and getting old enough to read Harry Potter so there is clearly a market. And what a great present. The books are, obviously, compulsive reading, so having the whole set is great. And the box looks nice too.

The first time I saw that the Harry Potter books would all be available in a box set like this, I wanted it badly. I still want it, but will have to be content with my collection bought over the years as each book was published.
I got into HP later in the game than some (there was too much hype surrounding it and I dismissed it as a fad), but astonishingly, it was the first HP movie that brought me into the Hogwarts universe and made me a fan. I devoured the books and the movies and became a regular on Rowling's website.
If you still haven't read these books (and as long as you're a fan of fantasy), I would recommend you make these your winter reading project. The stories go in places you wouldn't expect (esp. when starting out with books 1 & 2) and the pay-off in the end is definitely worth it.

Right now I'm still reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban but the books aren't mine. I just borrow them but I'm so sad because I cannot afford all the books because they are highly priced (but worth reading). I really hope I could win one so I don't have to spend money for it because I really want to read all the Harry Potter books! And J.K. Rowling is he best for making this award-winning book! Harry Potter is just the best book I have ever read!
I really hope I would win this!!!
