I suggest going through all of the books to make sure nothing like this has happened to you
I was thrilled when the ebooks were finally released but at the same time hesitant to drop nearly $60 on books I already owned several printed copies of. Naturally I completely missed the promotional $15 price, wish I'd heard about it. Still, I couldn't resist the lure of being able to carry all seven books with me wherever I went and finally I gave in.
Totally worth it.
If you like the convenience of having all the books with you, or are just slightly obsessed, I'd get the ebooks. If you don't really care and just read at home, I think the printed box set might actually be slightly cheaper.
The books are super easy to navigate. It's all seven in one huge book, but using the "go to" feature on the kindle I can just jump from book to book, with a table of contents in each book to jump chapters. I haven't experienced any of the glitches some of the other reviews mentioned, but I'm only one book in, so we'll see how it goes.
Was pleasantly surprised to see the drawings left in at the start of each chapter too.
There's not really much else to say. Glad to have yet another copy of these to carry with me everywhere, haha.
Deluxe Harry Potter UK/Bloomsbury Publishing Volumes 1-7 Boxed Set (The Complete Harry Potter Collection)
Now that we are (well almost all) huge fans of the Harry Potter books... here is the set that you want for your library shelves. This is a first edition of this particular set and very special for several reasons. First they are the Great Britain version and have more story in each book, starting from the very first chapter of the first volume their is more detail - more Harry Potter what a delicious thought.
They feel great in your hands, cloth bound ,all 3 sides of the pages are guilded, each book has a heavy duty,meant to last, ribbon marker.There are severeal different colors of book covers, and markers. The front of each book has a beautiful color illustration of some event in that volume. The title is gilded ,all 4 sides of each illustration is double gilded leaving the illustration with the slight illusion of being matted and at the bottom of each volume front cover the authors signiature is gilded. The spine of each volume includes the name of the volume, authors name, and publishers symbol and Bloomsbury ( publishers house name ) all of the writing on the spines are guilded as well. The inside of the covers is covered in paper that complements the color of the cloth covers, only in the same color and being a comlimentary hue.
The fabric covered slipcase houses all 7 of the books with a lovely crimson satin ribbon tie attached to the slipcover with strong,decorative,gold rivets, when displayed thusly the spins of all 7 volumes can be seen and the set is very pretty displayed this way with its ribbon tied in a tidy bow. The back of the slipcover case has in guilding the name of each volume written in pretty script.
I have never spent this kind of money on any book or book set before, so why now? I believe the Harry Potter books are already huge classics that generations are going to read, reread, read together as a family out loud,and be shared with generations of family . Because I know that I will read these books over and over and because my children are as crazy about them as I am, and because I adore these stories, I decided I would splurge and go for the most beautiful set I could find for the most wonderful stories penned in decades. I will be reading these to my grandchildren in a few years.AND the topper on the cake was I wanted all of this beauty in the English Version of these volumes. In the next few years I will be holding these beautiful books in my hands and reading them to my grandchildren. And of course their is a chance this set might become quit valuable over the years. And selfishly, I get to pick up these gorgeous British gems whenever I want and enjoy them myself, it's like a gourmet dinner , or your favorite hot beverage by the fireplace with a favorite book in a gourmet wrapper.
