Christmas Bookhaul

This may be a little late, but today I have my Christmas bookhaul! From my parents, I got 11 books, and with my own money I got as presents I bought myself 10 books, 2 of which I preordered.
To start with things I got from my parents we have the hardcover box set of Harry Potter (which is 1-7 of course) and I can't wait to reread these.
