Harry Potter 15th Anniversary Books Get U.S. Release Date

It’s been awhile since I posted on YABR. My travels between the U.S. and Australia get in the way a bit but I’m finally back to deliver fresh literary news from the YABR news desk! I’ll also be posting new reviews for some spectacular YA fiction. But enough about me, let’s get on with this Potter news story:

Amazon is listing the 15th anniversary re-releases of all seven Harry Potter books, with new illustrations from artist Kazu Kibuishi, for an August 27, 2012 release date in the United States. All of the books, including the 7 book box set edition, are available for pre-order now.

I’m a little confused as to why they’re releasing 15th anniversary editions for the books are are not even 15 years old (not even 10 for Deathly Hallows!) but I suppose a beautiful full set collection will look better on the bookshelf rather than getting one book every few years.

Will you be getting these new editions or sticking to your well worn original copies?
