J. K. (Joanne Kathleen) Rowling was born in Gloucestershire, U. K. on July 31, 1965. Rowling attended Tutshill Primary and then went on to Wyedean Comprehensive where she was made Head Girl in her final year. She received a degree in French from Exeter University. She later took some teaching classes at Moray House Teacher Training College and a teacher-training course in Manchester, England. This extensive education created a perfect foundation to spark the Harry Potter series that Rowling is renowned for. After college, Rowling moved to London to work for Amnesty International, where she researched human rights abuses in Francophone Africa, and worked as a bilingual secretary. In 1992, Rowling quit office work to move to Portugal and teach English as a Second Language. There she met and married her husband, a Portuguese TV journalist. But the marriage dissolved soon after the birth of their daughter. It was after her stint teaching in Portugal that Rowling began to write the premise for Harry Potter. She returned to Britain and settled in Edinburgh to be near her sister, and attempted to at least finish her book, before looking for another teaching job. Rowling was working as a French teacher when her book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published in June of 1997 and was an overnight sensation. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone won the British Book Awards Children's Book of the Year, was shortlisted for the Guardian Fiction Award, and received a Commended citation in the Carnegie Medal awards. She also received 8,000 pounds from the Scottish Arts Council, which contributed to the finishing touches on The Chamber of Secrets. Rowling continued on to win the Smarties Book Prize three years in a row, the only author ever to do so. At the Bologna Book Fair, Arthur Levine from Scholastic Books, bought the American rights to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for the unprecedented amount of $105,000.00. The book was retitled Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone for it's American release, and proceeded to top the Best Seller's lists for children's and adult books. The American edition won Best of the Year in the School Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, Parenting Magazine and the Cooperative Children's Book Center. It was also noted as an ALA Notable Children's Book as well as Number One on the Top Ten of ALA's Best Books for Young Adults. The Harry Potter Series consists of seven books, one for each year of the main character's attendance at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. All of the books in the series have been made into successful movies. She has also written Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Quidditch Through the Ages, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Decision I've Made All Year. Anyone who has tried looking for Harry Potter box sets online knows most of them go for around $100-$300. So a Harry Potter box set that costs less than $100? Seems almost too good to be true. But I decided to take a chance on it, and let me tell you right now--this is the real deal. Now, I had to have this shipped twice since the first delivery was damaged, but the second delivery when opened, presented to me a spiffy little red box containing 7 paper-back Harry Potter books. The slightly thicker-than-normal paper covers are much appreciated, no sweaty hand in the world could possibly damage the edges of these covers (which I might add are quite nicely designed compared to the other, more expensive box set covers)! The pages and font and letter sizing are also all clear and readable, no complaints there either. No complaints at all in general! Very, very, very pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT FROM PRODUCT TO STANDARD SHIPPING ok, so when I saw this deal, I thought it was a little sketchy. All the other book sets were at least  100$! Just incase anyone is questioning the quality, I gotta say it's pretty great. The books have thicker covers than normal paper backs and the're covers are pretty fancy. The real reason I really wanted to do this review is to credit the shipping! I live in the GTA and recently the weather has been terrible, there are severe ice conditions causing bad roads and power outages. indigo promised me delivery in 8 days and yesterday was the day theypredicted. I was expecting them the whole day but it was not delivered. I didn't blame the postmen because of the bad weather. at 10 pm, my doorbell rang and there was th postman with my package!! He definitely went out of his way to deliver it on time despite the bad road conditions. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! I purchased this for my daughter a month ago and we absolutely loved it. My daughter was so thrilled to see the box it came with. And the books are not hard to read at all. It's just like how regular books are supposed to be. The embossed title is also nice and got it on sale too! We are completely satisfied and happy of this purchase.
