I was disappointed to see that entire words were missing through out some of the books which made it difficult to read in some areas. By the time I reached those points in the books it was too late for a refund. There is more than this one page that had faded words, but this is the only picture I took to show as an example.
I suggest going through all of the books to make sure nothing like this has happened to you

2 Things I Would Love to Exist and 4 I Would Not from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
By Amanda Marie
As I was reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, I realized that there are quite a few things in the magical world that I am glad exist only in the magical world. I tried to think of things specifically from this book that I would love to have exist, and my list got very, very short. I think I’ll share them both with you. Enjoy!
Magical Things from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets I Wish Were Real:
Flying Ford Anglias
Seriously, who couldn’t use a flying car every once in a while? I love love to have one of these. That invisibility button would also be awesome since then people wouldn’t even know where I was when I was flying across the country. This would also probably be cheaper than flying commercially. Okay, someone needs to make this a thing.
So Dobby is a bit crazy but house elves could be extremely useful. Every bookworm could benefit from the services of one of these. They could clean up after us, make us food, and even bring us chocolate. I would be all for having a house elf, though I would treat my house elf better than Dobby was treated.
Magical Things from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets I Am Eternally Happy Are NOT Real:
Aragog and Family
Anything that is ready to eat Ron, Harry, and Fang needs to not exist. Also, a spider the size of a small elephant sounds terrifying. I am glad these exist only in the world of dear Harry Potter. Though, now that I think of it, this would be a very good reason to avoid the Forbidden Forest forever.
The Monster in the Chamber of Secrets
Since I don’t want to spoil this for anyone who hasn’t read the book/seen the movie (do you even exist?), I will refrain from naming the monster. However, this monster needs to never exist in the world that I live in. I have no desire to know that something this creepy could truly roam unseen around a gigantic, medieval castle. If these exist, kindly refrain from telling me so.
Tom Riddle’s Diary
So, a creepy blank diary that writes back to you? No thank you. I full heartedly agree with Mr. Weasley that you should never trust anything if you can’t tell where is keeps its brain. Yep, this diary definitely falls into that category of things that shouldn’t be trusted, ever. Also, after reading the later books and knowing what the diary really was, I am so grateful that it does not exist in my world.
I have to say that this could, potentially, be handy sometimes. However, at most times, this would be terrible. Imagine never knowing exactly who you are talking to or spending time with. Especially in light of the fourth book, this potion is a terrible idea, at least in my opinion. I prefer to deal with people honestly and so this type of a potion does not sit well with me.
