Less than six weeks!

If you're wondering what to buy me for my birthday next month, feel free to get me this. Do plan ahead on the international shipping; I haven't a clue how long it takes. On the upside, though, shipping is only seven pounds (less than $12) which is quite reasonable for seven thick books.

Note that I prefer the kids' editions to the adult version: All that's different is the covers. Apparently they thought adults would be embarrassed to ride around on the Underground with brightly colored Harry Potter books. Not me. I want a kids' book that looks like a kids' book!
Though if you insist on the adult version, get the paperback set that comes in a box that looks like a trunk. Because that is awesome.

If you get it for me, I promise to call and read a passage to you in my best British accent. Otherwise, I'll just read it to myself in a British accent.


  1. Hrm, tempting - I'd LOVE to hear a Brit accent that doesn't suck. I'll have to tell you sometime about the time I tried to pretend I was British on a ski lift... FAIL.

  2. Well, last night I was reading "The Importance of Being Earnest" to myself instead of going to bed, so I could do that for you, instead!

  3. If I read the Potter stuff I would totally choose the kid's books too.


Be nice.
