Harry Potter, Illustrated

I have a confession to make, and it is completely unrelated to viruses and the state of the world. It is a horrible thing for a book nerd such as myself: I don't have the Harry Potter books.

I've been meaning to buy them, but never got around to it.

I've read them, but I borrowed them and never bought them.

Looking around online, I saw that there's an illustrated version. Currently, only the first four books are available and they're quite pricey, so I decided to buy one to see if I'd like it. I got it yesterday, but didn't really have time to look.

Unpacking it this morning made me go "Ooooh!"

It's amazing. It's gorgeous - almost every page is decorated. It's huge, like a magical book in a fairy tale.

I hope all of the books will be available in this format at some point in the future, and that the whole collection will be in my shelf. :-)
