The Harry Potter movies are a Christmas countdown staple. Now that it’s December, it’s officially time to get into the festive spirit – we’ve got Harry Potter baubles on the tree, we’ve booked to go to this Harry Potter bar and we’re ordering wrapping paper with Hermione’s face on it because we really are that extra.
But for anyone who is also fond of the books, you’ll have thumbed through your copies so many times that the ink is starting to rub off. And if you’re one of those people who properly cracks the spine and folds the corners of the pages (shudder), then you’re definitely in need of a new set.
Most importantly, you need to ensure your copy of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is in top condition because it’s the best one. No wait, maybe it’s Half Blood Prince. Actually we’re going to go with Deathly Hallows.
Okay, fine, they’re all great and we can’t actually choose.
But we’ve got some great news. Aldi is now selling the entire collection for less than £30. And it’s worth considering that reading Harry Potter apparently makes you a better person according to science, so reading the books multiple times surely makes you an even better person – no?
You can get your hands on all seven instalments for just £29.99, making each one just over £4. Bargain or what?
While it’s been 21 years since the first book was released (yes, really), our love for these magical stories is not dying down with Bloomsbury revealing that sales of the series have exceeded 500 million worldwide. Pretty impressive, but we can’t say we’re too surprised – they are still our absolute favourites.
The book set is available from Aldi both online and in stores, but once they’re gone they’re gone so get down to your nearest store and accio that set, pronto.
