Is it really such a smart thing for me to be posting about Harry Potter again? *znork* =S

Anyway, someone was collecting all the Harry Potter book covers in all the different languages, so I scanned in the Chinese versions of Book 1 and 2 that I had. I cleaned this up a little from what I had before so it would be easier to see:

book 1 - china_taiwan_hk.jpg ... The black letters of the title are actually gold, the scanner just doesn't do metallic well.

Harry Potter and The Mysterious Mystical Stone

book 2 - china_taiwan_hk.jpg ... The black letters of the title are actually metallic red.

Harry Potter and The Missing Chamber of Secrets

Rowling is 羅琳, "Luo2 Lin2"

MIL Woman has been appropriately play-reprimanded for not getting Book 3 & 4 (they were too heavy for her luggage *pshaw*).

MIL Woman has been admonished to bring back Book 3 & 4 for the next trip. =D

She's still reading the first two, so I haven't gotten to them yet. Just before she went back, I asked for some Elementary school level Chinese novels so that I could practice reading. I asked for Science Fiction (科幻 ke1 huan4) and Star Trek preferred. Not sure what "Star Trek" is in Chinese, but "Star Wars" is 星球大戰 (Xing1 Qiu2 Da4 Zhan4 - Planetary Big War)

But she's not into SciFi (she's into Romance, like Chinese Danielle Steele), so it was hard for her to choose. She got me The Monkey King: Journey to the West and a translated Pride and Prejudice instead. Those are both cool beans too!!! But, it didn't occur to me to ask for all four Harry Potter books =P Next trip. Next trip.
