Harry Potter book series

The Harry Potter series was originally written as a series of childrens books but got quite some interest from adults too. By the time the 5th book Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix came out, Harry Potter had become quite a hype and people ordered the book in millions.

Special is also that the books also come out in so-called 'Adult editions'. This doesn't mean the book has more adult situations, it just means the cover is changed to look less like a childrens' book.

The whole series:
