No, there is not an eighth book in the series that you don’t know about. There isn’t a spin-off for one of the characters. And there isn’t another book that takes place at Hogwarts that has nothing to do with Harry and company. But there IS a new book. It is a fully illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. And it looks great!
I first saw the book on display at my store maybe last week? And I didn’t know what it was. I thought it was some kind of condensed, lower reading level edition. Then I opened it up and realized that it is the ENTIRE book! I didn’t buy one. And I’m not going to because I have the whole series already and I don’t need my copy to have fancy illustrations, but I bet you know someone who would appreciate how nice this book is. I think it’s the sixth best selling book on Amazon right now. And it’s sold out. But if you want to get a look at these pretty books, then go into your neighborhood Half Price Books and take a look!
What do you think of the first book in the series being fully illustrated after almost two decades?
PS: The reason some of my posts focus on what’s happening at Half Price Books is because I see so many things during the course of the week that I think are perfect for the blog. No one is paying me to write these. Like I found out yesterday that Rick Riordan has started a new series. I find things like this out all the time. Sometimes I share them with y’all and sometimes I don’t.
