The first set of non-U.S. editions that Salzman bought were books one and seven, while on a summer music tour in Europe.

"I wanted to buy all seven right there but didn't have the room in my suitcase, so I settled on books one and seven. I loved that the covers were so different from the U.S. editions they gave you insight to different moments in the story," she told BuzzFeed.

"I spent my last week in London exploring used bookstores trying to complete my collection but only found books two and three, but I also found the U.K. adult covers which we don’t have in the States. So I bought a few of them, too."

All in all, she now has 37 different versions including the Harry Potter books and the companion books Quidditch Through the Ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
