Mrs.Mylifenow,Cullen - I love listening to the HP audiobooks (I have all 7) mine are read by Jim Dale & I love how he gives each character a different voice. I also have the TW audiobooks & I'm addicted to those two.

I like them because you hear someone else's voice and for me especially it provides a whole new perspective on the entire series.

Question for you what are the deluxe editions, I never heard of those before?

I was done with the first three and I had just started the fourth when the annual breakfast with santa came 'round. The had a raffle there and that one particular year they had the 1-4 box set. (The fifth wasn't out yet) I was so ecstatic when they called my ticket I ran half way up to the podium with all the prizes and realized I had forgotten the ticket itself [: That is one well-read set of books.

The Deluxe Edition includes an exclusive insert featuring near-scale reproductions of Mary GrandPré's interior art, as well as never-before-seen full-color frontispiece art on special paper. The custom-designed slipcase is foil-stamped and contains a full-cloth case book that has been blind-stamped on front and back cover with foil stamping on the spine. The book includes full-color endpapers featuring the jacket art from the trade edition and a wraparound jacket featuring art created especially for this edition by Mary GrandPré.

That was the description on amazon.

Yea, I noticed that a while back too. I really don't understand why they felt the need to change it.

Question: Who was the person asking if Nimbus was a good name for their cat, and if they should name it that?

^^ from what I understood about the change of name from Philosphers Stone to Sorcers Stone had to do with the definition of philospher in the dictionary.

I read that somewhere, I will find the post and edit back with the exact reason, I'm going off of memory right now and today like this entire week, my brain is fried and I'm working on auto piolet (see I can't even spell but you know what I mean).

I can't remember who posted about naming their cat Nimbus, I'm wondering if it was in the movie thread because I kind of looked back and didn't find anything

I don't think so, because I never go into the movie thread.

The way it was explained to me they changed philosopher to sorceror's was because her publisher thought us americans wouldnt understand the term 'philosopher'.

That's what I'd heard as well.

You are totally correct.

I think too it was because philosopher kind of means the same to the English as sorceror is to the Americans.

You know what is funny, I bought the adult edition of the books and the first book is titled with Philosopher (I had to go look) but it would be because the adult editions were only released in the UK.
