Harry Potter Variant Covers

Sometimes I’m baffled by the variant-covers thing in comics. I asked Harold about this. It’s the same story, right? Just with a new picture on the front? So why don’t people just buy the version with the cover they like best? Collecting them all is weird! But seeing this new cover art for the Harry Potter books makes me want to rebuy all of novels with new covers. I love Mary GrandPre’s pastels on the current covers,  and I already have a complete set of HP in hardcover, and e-versions on my Kindle, so I probably don’t need to buy any more versions of Harry Potter…

Wait! I could use my existing books for actual reading, and buy these new ones to keep pristine and perfect on the bookshelf!

    Ooohh, pretty!

    I waited in line at midnight for most of the books, so those particular tomes are of special importance. Book seven was especially nice: I dressed up as Ginny Weasley (going with physical looks, not personality), went to the mall at midnight (hooray for SoCal), and spent the entire night reading and puppy-sitting.

    Sometime around 7 am, I called my best friend and gave her the Monarch notes. She was three days away from taking the bar, so I was under special instructions to erase any sort of temptation for her to buy until after the exam. Ah, so that particular book – so many good memories.
