17 ‘Harry Potter’ Book Covers from Around the World

This month we’re celebrating 20 years since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was published. That’s the first in the series, just to clarify. It doesn’t seem possible, especially for those of us who grew up with this series, that 20 years have flown by. The series has been translated into over 68 languages and some of Rowling’s original words and English phrases have been lost in translation, but the love of Harry Potter is universal.
