The Blog

I’ll be posting here whenever I add something new to either of my collections – or something else Harry Potter-related happens that I wanna tell you about.

 

November Potter updates

November Potter updates

November has been a busy month for me, and brought on a lot of Harry Potter-related news, too. First off, I managed to get a new box of the Danish special collection. I already had the books themselves, but the box and serial number were missing in my set. I found the...

Finally, a new 2nd hand find

Finally, a new 2nd hand find

So I guess I'm not the only one feeling the current world situation with rising prices etc. I'm not critically suffering or anything, but I do have a house heated by natural gas. Which means that I haven't really felt comfortable splurging on things I don't...

The Last Lithuanian

The Last Lithuanian

Just a little update - I added the last of the Lithuanian anniversary Harry Potter books to my collection! My father-in-law has taken great care checking out my collection and figuring out which books I was missing and he's been gifting me one at every opportunity....

New Lego set: Hogwarts Icons!

New Lego set: Hogwarts Icons!

I've been in love with this set since it came out, but I didn't so much love the price tag... And since it's a Lego store exclusive, it's rarely a part of supermarket and toy store 25% off (since most of them don't have it).  So when I finally had a chance to grab it...

Birthday presents

Birthday presents

Yesterday was my friend's birthday, and we've known each other for a really long time. Growing up, we shared our HP obsession and later on, we're also cosplaying together. I wanted to get her a present that would be personal and sort of symbolize our friendship, and I...

Not Harry Potter

Not Harry Potter

Ok, so today's post is not about Harry Potter, but it is about a book, and it does feel like something magic just happened! So when I was like... 15 or something like that, I was (also) really into this one book series, Skammerens Datter (translated to English "The...

Danish finds

Danish finds

Here's a few more Danish finds: The last 2 of the 4 books in 3rd edition Danish (only the first 4 were ever released) and book 4 in the 5th edition version. Now I'm only missing book 5 to have a full set of the 5th edition ones as well!  Henry is perfect for book...

At long last…

At long last…

Pretty much since the beginning of my Harry Potter-obsession, I had one particular set of translations that I wanted. I remember clearly looking at them with my dial-up internet connection while my mom was impatient for me to log off, in case someone wanted to call...

Danish 5th edition 2 and 6

Danish 5th edition 2 and 6

Just a quick note - I found a few more of this set on Marketplace. So now I'm missing 4 and 5 for the full set. It's not that I didn't see them... But so far I've paid 100 kr or less for each of these books, and the last ones I've so far only seen at 2-400 kr. It's...

Last of ze Germans!

Last of ze Germans!

Ok, last of the 20th anniversary German books, anyways - I'm still missing other German editions, haha. I was missing Order of the Phoenix from this set, because last time I went to Germany, I remembered wrong and thought I had already bought it. Woups. I had a...
