How meaningful Harry Potter was.
hey, no sarcastic answers please, but for harry potter fans out there, do you think the story means more to you now that you grew up? like you didn’t realize how important that part of your childhood would be until it became a memory (kind of quoting dr. suess). i was just wondering if anyone felt the same as…
My parents always read a couple chapters of the Harry Potter books to me every night when I was little until I was old enough to pick up where they left off and read them for my own. Harry Potter was one of the very rare pieces of art that will forever stay in out hearts. After all these years or thousands of the books I’ve read, Harry Potter has always stayed with me. J.K Rowling has a unique gift of creating the perfect characters at the perfect time. She creates them to draw as in, feel as though we have a connection with them and know them personally to the point where whenever they feel happiness we can’t help but smile and whenever they’re sad we cry along with them. The characters and beautiful settings are what really make the story come to life. Harry Potter was, is, and is always going to be a jewel.
how much are my harry potter books worth.
it turns out ive got 2 harry potter 1st editions. deathly hallows and the half-blood prince. they both have ‘first edition’ written inside, theyre both hardbacks with dust covers, both published by bloomsbury and deathly hallows has £17.99 written inside. and they were both printed in the uk. any ideas? i…
They’re worth approximately the same as any other second-hand hardback book. HBP and DH both had initial print runs of several million copies, so any collector who wants one will have no difficulty finding one. DH had a special deluxe edition released in the US at the same time as the “regular” edition, limited to a “mere” 100,000 copies – more than most books sell over the entire time they’re in print.Your copy of CoS might be worth a bit more, but if it’s the 4th edition, it was probably printed after the series became popular, so there are probably a lot of copies of that knocking around.If a first edition is valuable, it’s because there aren’t many copies of it, compared with the total number of copies in existence. Those tend to be the books where the author was relatively unknown at the time the book was published, but then became much more successful. The initial print run of Philosopher’s Stone was 500 copies, so if you had one of those, it’d be worth rather a lot.

How much are my Harry Potter books worth.
I have the first three books signed by JK Rowling and they are all hardcovers. I know my parents bought them when they first came out in America, but how do I know if they are first editions? To give you some other information, The Sorcerer’s Stone does not have the number on the spine representing the year…
You are smart to hold onto such things!Basically, the value of a book depends on (1) its edition or rarity, (2) its condition, and (3) if it’s signed.It sounds like you already know something about your copies, mentioning the absence of the “Year 1” on the spine of the dust jacket of “Sorcerer’s Stone.” That wasn’t added until the sequels were published. Let’s take things one step at a time.1) editon-You can usually tell whether a book is a first editon or not by going to the publication page between the front cover and the main title page. There should be numbers descending down to the number “1”. Often like this: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1or 9 7 5 3 1 2 4 6 8 10These numbers show how many times the book is planning to be reprinted and the smallest number gets taken away on subsequent printings until years later, only the largest numbers remain. If your copies have the number “one” present as well as the words “First Edition” above them then you most likely have a copy that was sold when the book was first released. Keep in mind, each US version came out AFTER its UK version did.2) condition-There is a website called the Iliadbookshop.com which has a terrific description of the different levels of quality or condition a book can be in. I think it goes something like “Mint…New…Like New…Very Good…Good…Fair…Poor…Bad” (each one depending on how well the book was treated or looks or feels: loose cover/tight cover, pages worn or not, dust jacket torn, spine intact or not, tattered edges, etc. A book’s condition will greatly affect its value.3) signature-Most of the time an author will sell signed copies of their book(s) or offer to sign them for fans who bring their copy to a book-signing. The most sought-after type of signature is one that is just the author’s name on one of the first few pages of the book without any date or personal message added (for example: “To Wendy, All the Best, J.D. Author”) That’s because a collector will most likely want a copy that isn’t “personalized” so they can one day re-sell the book. Unless the former owner turns out to be famous (“To George, Best of luck with your ‘Star Wars’ idea…)It is a sad truth, but signed copies of anything printed (books, paintings, photographs, etc.) almost always go up in value, once the author/artist dies, simply because there will be no more future signatures from their hand.As for the dollar value of your books, I suggest you go to another website other than e-bay. E-bay only shows what the last successful seller was able to get for his/her book. The one I’ve often trusted for book prices is “abebooks.com” which allows you to pinpoint your search based on whether the book is signed/unsigned, new/old, first editon or not, has a dust jacket or not, as well as its condition. This way you can see how many copies are currently for sale across the globe that match your own and what the sellers are asking for them. Just be sure to read all the details they give to get an accurate description. Sometimes they even provide a photo.Good luck!
how do i find out how much my harry potter book is worth.
i think that i have harry potter books 1 and 2 that may be valuable collectibles. is there a way i cant find out how much they are worth?
Why would they be valuable collectibles? Tons of people have that book. You can get them at Walmart for 8 dollars a piece. It won’t be years and years until they’re worth a bit more.
The second Harry Potter book–how much is it worth.
Hello all,I was sorting my personal library by alphabetical order, and I was just going through my Harry Potter books. When I looked at my second one, I realized that it was an original copy–you can tell the original ones from non-original ones because of one single mistake:**Hardcover** pg 332–instead of…
There are lots of book appraisel sites out there. Some sites are free if/when you sign up others do cost you money for the appraisel. Do a book appraisel search on google and you’ll have all sorts of options. I do agree with one of your other answers though, I personally have the same copy as I’m sure do many other people. I suggest keeping it in mint condition and 30 years down the road it will be a nice collectible with all other 1st edition Harry Potters.
How many Harry Potter books are published.
My friend and I are doing a project on how much stuff is used, and we thought about paper and how much is used. So if any guesses on how many are published?
Up to June of 2008 there have been more than 400 million copies. Since then I would estimate it has grown to possibly 500 million copies. The books have been translated to 67 different languages. With it’s popularity, I think it could sell less then 100 million in a year and a half since June, 2008.Of the books that go platinum, it usually takes over a year… Harry Potter broke that in less then a day. That is pretty phenomenal.CyberNara
How much is an American First Edition Harry Potter book.
I have american first editions of both The Chamber of Secrets and the Prisoner of Azkaban and was wondering how much they would be worth?
The Chamber of Secrets American First Edition can go up to $9,000.The Prisoner of Azkaban American First Edition depends. If you have the version that has the name of the author on the copyright page as Joanne Rowling rather than J.K. Rowling, then that start from £1,500 and can go up to $12,000. That was actually a mistake that they typed her first name Joanne instead of her initials J.K. and was stopped in the mid-printing after it was discovered. There are not much copies of this version which is why the price is high (ignoring the fact that it is first edition). There is also another mistake in the same version that there is a block of misaligned text on the seventh page.The Prisoner of Azkaban deluxe edition American First Edition with the green cloth can go up to $5,000.The normal Prisoner of Azkaban American First Edition varies from $150 to $700.You are really lucky to have these two copies. I wish I had them. Not to sell them but to truly be a real Harry Potter fan I am.

How many Harry potter books are there.
Okay I actually have 2 questions:Question number 1: how’s my Harry Potter books are there?And 2: if there’s 8 movies how come there is only 7 books? (So I’ve heard, but I’ve also heard there’s 10 books) or did Half Blood prince part 1 and 2 get clunged up in book number 7? Do I make any…
There are 7 books:1. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone2. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix6. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince7. Harry Potter and the Deathly HallowsThere are 8 movies:1. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone2. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets3. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban4. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire5. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix6. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 18. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1JK Rowling also wrote: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Quidditch Though the Ages and The Tales of Beedle the Bard. They have been mentioned in the HP books once and Tales of Beedle the Bard appear in Deathly Hallows, however, neither of the three books have any relation to the characters or plots, so they are not counted as Harry Potter books.The producers of the Harry potter movies decided to split the final book- Deathly Hallows into two movies for a better adaptation of the series finale. As the books go on, they are larger and richer with detail and plotlines. There is so much going on in the final book, that it would have been impossible to fit all of it in one movie. It was a very smart decision to make.
