Just in case anyone has not yet seen these, here are the three covers for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince:



The US edition:

The UK children's edition:

The UK adult edition:

I like them all, but I think my favorite is the UK adult copy. It has a POTIONS book, and POTIONS mean SNAPE, and I'm ALL ABOUT THE SNAPE!!

Ahem.

I also think that Marie GrandPre keeps improving with each new US cover.

Thoughts, opinions, questions? :-)

I saw the U.S. one because some one posted in here recently. I haven't seen the UK copies. Pretty cool. I dig the US one though. hehe I bet you can't wait. I bet your calendar is marked and your counting down the days. Don't try to deny it, I know you are. hehe Did you pre order your copy already? : ) You can read this one to me cause I am so not looking foward to reading even if it is shorter than OOTP. Yes I know I am lazy. but also in the time it takes me to read them you could have read it twice. : )

Oh please, like you're not just as excited about it. ;-)

And no, I don't have to circle the date on my calendar, since I know I won't forget it! Though I might go do that anyway, just for the heck of it. *g* I do, however, have a countdown ticker for it on my LJ info page. I'll go add the link to the site I got it from, since they have really cute tickers. I was trying to think of other things I could count down to, just so I could use more of them!

I really like the US cover, too. Actually, the US cover art has always been pretty good, it was just the chapter drawings that were a bit off. The UK adult covers were usually nice, but kind of boring. This one's the nicest so far, IMO.

Of course I will read the book to you, heh. But if Snape dies or something, I may not be able to continue. :-(

I kind of like all the covers this time around. I guess my favorite is the US one, but that might be partly because I love the color green. *g*

Oh, but that adult UK one... it hints at so many possibilities!

the UK adult version could indicate that harry got an O on his potions owl, if the advanced potions book is his. either that or mcgonnogal pulled some strings...

I'm British and I think the children's one is pretty awful, however the adults edition is verrry good.
