Now my bookshelves are groaning. 

I just bought the entire Potter series in a boxed set.

It is some of the best writing in the English language. Spare, perfectly observed, dramatic and sometimes frightening; yet containing a sense of the everyday that has never failed to enthrall generations of children.

And their parents, like me.

No, not that Potter.

This Potter.

is it time for a nap yet? i think so

Hee! Great post! Those Potters would certainly be nicer to lug on the train (although the newer Potter ain't half-bad...)!
ah lovely covers... the old style... i do love miss potter... and the animated series... still makes me smile...
That was actually the Potter series I was thinking as I read your post! Oh, I love those. :)
Nice to see these in their original format - made for children's hands just as Beatrix Potter requested. They're eternal classics in every respect!
I love this Potter. I have a first edition of Peter Rabbit!
