A Harry Potter admirer (fanatic is too cliche..hehe) through and through, Blooey’s entry on her growing collection on all things HP will impress any book connoisseur or casual observer. See also the Happy Potter party she threw with her cousin here.

More on HP:

1. Some weeks ago while I was browsing through ebay, found some unique HP merchandise (read: with “slight” errors”). There was one OOTP edition pegged initially at $4500 (yup..that’s a dollar sign before the numbers!) because it was bound upside down and the owner thinks that that rarity is worth that much. Here are the full details. Also, a first edition of the Deathly Hallows published by A. Levine had a curious error. Click here to know more about it. A UK OOTP Proof Copy is also up for sale at $3000. See here for details.

2. Bibliophile Peter Sandico on KyusiReader featured this cute HP and the Half-Blood Prince tote from Make It and Take It made from a hardbound spine of the said book (although Blooey suspects it’s more of a reproduction than a genuine book spine) and a beaded handle.
