The Book Collection

I got my first Harry Potter book in 2001 and since then I’ve collected various editions of books. I usually get them at flea markets, on vacations or as gifts from travelling family and friends.

In case you’re curious: I speak Danish, English and German. And my husband is from Lithuania with parents who know how much I love Harry Potter books!
