Scholastic, the US publishers of the Harry Potter novels, will be releasing a new box set of the series this summer. This new collection, which you can see here in our galleries, is available for pre-order via Barnes and Noble, as well as Walmart. Included in the collection are the set of US paperback editions of books one through seven, with the box to feature the Deluxe cover from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

As a reminder, the paperback edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling will be released July 7, and is available for pre-order via our Cauldron shop.

Avatar ImageGryffindorGal87 says: That box looks wonderful! I can't wait to get mine! :)Avatar ImageNeil in Scotland says: Wow!! That look gorgeous! I don't have any of the US paperbacks, so I might just have to inverset in that box set!Avatar ImageEmilyDeibert says: It's so pretty! I think I may order it - depending on the price.Avatar ImageSylvieTheHufflepuff says: Eee! This is so cool! I'd order it if the Canadian dollar wasn't so low... and would probably end up costing me closer to $80... I'd rather keep my Beedle <3Avatar Imagewizardinventor says: Are the actual covers of the books different? The spines look special from what the picture shows. I'd have to see more photos before making up my mind on this one.Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: I probably won't buy or order it, since I already have two of each paperback, except DH, of course. Avatar ImageMcGiggles92 says: Oh, and the covers are the same except the spine and back. The spines and backs are a solid color, I know because I saw these newer versions of the paperbacks at my local Borders. Avatar ImageBeowulf says: I will have to pass. Two months ago I ordered the UK paperback children's box set from Amazon UK. Cost US$73 and arrived 10 days later. Been VERY happy with it. Sorry, Scholastic, you are just too late...Avatar ImageAccioCloak says: Looks good - nice gift for anyone who doesn't have the US editions.Avatar ImageAgrippa1 says: I've already got the deluxe DH with the dragon cover, and I'm not sure the boxed paperback set will have anything more than I've already got on my shelf. But I'm glad to hear the paperback DH is finally being released! That one I'll be glad to add so I've got the complete pb collection.Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: What a fantastic set! Unfortunately, I don't need to buy it...but I know I certainly want to.Avatar Imagehalcyon says: I really wish Scholastic had gone the way of Bloomsbury and given us adult-looking covers too.

I have them all in hardback already and I love the box!Avatar Imagevicky granger says: That's great ! It looks amazing, I wish I could get it, but I already have the hard covers, so ...Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: I'm afraid that I don't want the paper back set. I have to have the hard cover so the printing is larger. I will however buy the first 3 books in hardback. I started reading the Harry Potter Books in paperback but by the 4th book, got it and all the rest in Hardback. If I had know how I would love them, I would have invested in the hardbacks at that time. Who Knew????LolAvatar ImageAbiDumbledore says: I need to go to America and buy them!! I want them so bad! :( I wish they would import them to my local bookshop.Avatar ImageAbiDumbledore says: I need to go to America and buy them!!

The paperback for DH came out here ages ago, how come its taken so long in the statesAvatar Imagetheatregirl25 says: I am missing some of my paperback books, I may have to get these. I like them. Avatar ImageMagicDucks says: Very nice! I love the box. Not that I really *need* a third copy of Deathly Hallows, though...Avatar Imagesrt2gryffndr says: I can't wait.. my paperbacks are all yucky now..Avatar ImageCatherine says: I like the hard-cover books better (they keep better)! But the box looks pretty!Avatar Imagethursrain says: Whoo finaily, as if ineed another set, I have both a US and British/Canda ones.

I hope I can buy them soon :) Remember: don't order/buy it at Walmart!Avatar Imagesimbathedog says: wahooAvatar Imagebadger666 says: Cool! I want one.Avatar ImageAttolia says: Hmmm. Looks really nice. If I wanted a box set, this would definitely be it - since it actually has all the books in it, for one thing. It would kind of be nice to have paperbacks, but I like my hardbacks and don't exactly need new copies.Avatar Imageravenclawguy1972 says: must have it!!!!! i have been waiting for DH to come out in paper back to complete my set and as mine are getting more than a bit ragged and none are first paper back printing ill just get the set and have shiny new copies Avatar ImagePotterswan says: Oh so pretty.Avatar ImageGinnyClone30250 says: That is SO freaking cool.Avatar Imageharrypotterbookpurist says: Wow! This looks so awesome I love it so much. I would love to buy the full paperback boxset of Harry Potter to have copies everywhere I go. I love that they have the scene where the trio is flying on the dragon from the Deathly Hallows.Avatar Imagegaminette says: My gosh - how many sets are there going to be? I'm happy with my UK set of paperbacks and don't have room in my shoebox for too much else. Sorry Scholastic! O_oAvatar ImagePadfootLover4ever says: Oh those look really nice! I want to get them! I dont have any of the books in paperback. That would be cool to have them hard and soft. I do have Quidditch through the ages and fanatstic beasts and where to find them in paperback. And now they came out with hardcover! I those too!Avatar ImagePadfootLover4ever says: Hmm...the more I think about it the more I realize I need a new set of HP books. My hardcovers are about 7 1/2 years old now and some of them(GOF and HBP) are in horrible condition. I really want this paperback set now!!! Then I would have paperack and hardcover!! I am definitly gonna buy this set!Avatar Imageeliza_morwen_black says: Ooh... it's pretty. But I wouldn't buy it for myself... I might buy it for my nephew for his 11th birthday in 3 years, though. :)Avatar Imagerinanorreh says: Guh. Yet another HP thing I desperately want. ;)Avatar Imageharrypotterbookpurist says: Yes everytime something new of Harry Potter comes out I always want to buy it. I would love to have this whole set to have as my travel copies and some of my paperback editions are falling apart anyways. I own both the hardcover and paperback versions along with the UK versions.Avatar ImageDolemite says: Already have all the books I needAvatar ImageBradyboy says: Honestly, this is another way for Scholastic to make money. I won't be buying new paperback copies of the books just because they have new covers. Avatar ImageChrissyPuff says: very cool! definitely will make a great gift. I bought most of mine on Amazon, so they are all mismatched lolAvatar ImageGobbledygook says: nice. my SS/PS is falling apart. :(Avatar ImageChantyBabez says: AWESOME! :D xxxAvatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: I so can't wait for it ! All my HP books are falling apart!

I may have to buy it when my Wal-Mart has it.Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I don't like the fact that they changed the spine. I wanted to get the hardback collections with the trunk, but I wasn't sure how sturdy the cardboard trunk is. Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I don't like the fact that they changed the spine.

Avatar Imagex_Potter_Lover_Forever_x says: Wow these look really cool but do I really need them??? How different are the American versions? And how much do they cost?

My brother owns CoS & PoA in paperback. I'm not going to get the paperback set because I like hard cover better.Avatar ImageMrs_Severus_Snape says: I want the US edition!!! xDDAvatar ImageBradyboy says: Honestly, this is just another scheme for scholastic to make money. I mean I might consider it if it had something more than a new cover.
