Hogwarts don't you mean? It's also been used for Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves, and Elizabeth. And the most recent Robin Hood, too.

Ah, yes of course that what I meant. It's been a while since I've read one or even seen one and its been a long dat. I know about Robin Hood etc but its the flying broomsticks over the towers of Alnwick that does it for me. It's the only one you get quite that view of all the towers. CGI, I know but....

I've noticed some price drops at Amazon US. Lion Dormant and Lion Invincible.

Should I or shouldn't I?

I wasn't really paying attention to this thread last year because I wasn't "there" yet in my challenge. I am now and I'm tempted to grab these up. I was crossing my fingers they may re-release them on Kindle or in paperback but I don't know if that will happen. Should I wait?

I tried the library-no luck. Decisions...

If the prices are still low, I'd say go for it. You can always resell or swap them out (I think there's a waiting list at PBS). It really does help give you some insight on the disputes leading up to it all, and the Percy POV.
