Update as of 9/24/08: Uh oh, only two updates this year so far? *shakes head* that's not good at all. Well, as a gift for being a total airhead, I give you new book scans! I just put up Book #7: The Light of Meridian, and a great friend Helix scanned the fabulous Will and Hay Lin Adventure Books! I hope you guys enjoy them! And don't forget to scroll down to see the latest scanning and W.i.t.c.h. news. Later!

Update as of 3/19/08: Hurray! I finally can update! Well, the great news is that everything is fixed on this site! We now have Books #1-6 (new!), Taranee's Adventure Book, and the W.i.t.c.h. Scrapbook and Diaries back up here for reading enjoyment ^^ I hope you like them

Update as of 9/21/07: Book #5: The Last Tear, is now on the site! Also, I finally put links on the link page. I added another page for Comic Scans, which so far has the W.i.t.c.h. Scrapbook from the U.S. Chapter Book #26 and also W.i.t.c.h. Diaries #1-6 from the Philippine Comic Issues #25-30. Hurray for new W.i.t.c.h. stuff! Be sure to check up on the current scanning news below!

Update as of 8/2/07: Whew! Am I tired! Books #1-3 are now up on this site! I will start scanning book #5 after I'm done getting up comic issues #31-36 and #42-44 (which are the ones missing from SpiritGoddess.) Check for updated W.i.t.c.h. News,  Scanning News, and Book F.A.Q.!

Update as of 4/13/07: Alright, seeing as how SpiritGoddess isn't here anymore, I'm going to have to work on how to get everything worked out here because her unexpected leaving has made a lot of problems (like taking away comic issues 31-36 and 42-44, for instance.) I can handle this site fine on my own because there isn't as much to do as on the UWW, but I do need one or two people to help me with scanning the books. Since a variety of people helped scan the comics, it would take a huge weight off my shoulders if I got a few people to scan with me. Check for W.i.t.c.h. News and Scanning News below!

Update as of 1/20/07: The 2nd W.i.t.c.h. Adventure Book, Heartbreak Island, A Taranee Story, is up on the site! I'm going to try working on getting books #1-3 up soon and then start scanning Book #5

Update as of 1/17/07: The 4th book is finally up on this site! Once the other books that have already been scanned get up, then I can work on book #5. Still no word from Bre yet though

Update as of 1/13/07: We've finally gotten this site we talked about up! Comic and Book scanning News has been updated below, along with some common knowledge about the U.S. chapter books that some people wonder about and the rules of this website. Books #1-4 have been scanned, along with Will and Taranee's Adventure Books. Since Bre scanned Book 3 and Will's Adventure Story, I don't know when she can manage to get those up (though Book #3 is on her photobucket account, as Books #1 and 2 are on my 2nd one) but I will get my book scans all up as soon as possible. Thanks!

W.i.t.c.h. News

*Unfortunately, there will NOT be a 3rd season of the W.i.t.c.h. show  I know, it's really horrible but we all tried our best

*It looks like the U.S. W.i.t.c.h. series (along with places such as the Philippines and Netherlands) has come to an end *cries*

*W.i.t.c.h. Book #26: Friends Forever, has been released so go to the bookstore nearest you and go buy it! (And yes, we will get to that book too eventually.)

*W.i.t.c.h. Graphic Novel #8: An Unexpected Return, has just been released so go to the bookstore nearest you and go buy it!

--Note- the W.i.t.c.h. books are pretty hard to find in bookstores now so get the series before you never have a chance to own the magical books

W.i.t.c.h. Book Info

Hi guests to this site. We know that you have come here for some scans of the U.S. books based on the awesome W.i.t.c.h. Comics by Elisabetta Gnone, but there are some groundrules and some basic info about the books and our scans that you would need to know and we absolutely trust that if you are the true W.i.t.c.h. fans that we think you are, that you will read these rules and FAQ's very carefully before continuing with reading our book scans. If I have the time to type this and scan books for you, then you should all have the courtesy to just read and understand these simple guidlines to this site. Thank You.

~Amanda~

RULES

1. R-E-S-P-E-C-T! I'm sure you've all heard it before. Please do not raid the gustbook or email us talking a bunch of garbage about us or W.i.t.c.h. or even hang there to talk to your buddies (guestbooks are not instant messenging or myspace!)

2. DO NOT beg for scans! It's been extremely annoying in the past, and it will not make me or any of the OTHER comic and book scanners go any faster with scanning W.i.t.c.h. for you guys (and this also calls for the 'respect' thing.) We really appreciate other loyal fans who wish us good luck and give us appreciation for taking time out of all of our own busy lives to scan books, comics, specials, etc. for you guys, but constantly asking when an issue is going to come and begging for scans will, at the most, just make us mad and feel unappreciated. Just give us a break and understand that we're people too, okay?

3. Absolutely NO other websites except for 1. The Unofficial W.i.t.c.h. Website: A.A.N.K.S. Scans and Downloads , 2. W.i.t.c.h.-O-HOLIC: MoonCloud217's Scans  3. W.i.t.c.h. FTP Server: Downloadable Scans 4. Comics by Max9075: Corrected and New Scans 5. The W.i.t.c.h. Files: Irmalover's Scans 6. W.i.t.c.h. Obsession: Rojaws' Scansmay have the comic and book scans on their website. I just wanted to let you know that if anybody else has them, then they never asked permission from all of us scanners and are STEALING1! (And that goes for the same kind of people who decided to put them up on torrents too!!! So please just stop for us and ASK!)

If you have any problems/complaints or just want to say something to me, email me at lilshowtout92910@yahoo.com

 

First things first, if you can possibly buy the U.S. chapter books or the comic book issues from your country (if you live there. Nobody should be expected to buy things from other far away countries, although I was desperate so I did it ^_^.) Nothing, not even online scanned issues can replace actually having the real thing in your hand, so try helping out those great W.i.t.c.h. people and buy some merchandise!

 

Alright then, onto the FAQs about the U.S. Chapter Books!

 

FAQs

 

Q: Where can I buy the U.S. W.i.t.c.h. Books?

A: They are available at any bookstore/online store in the U.S. and Canada. There are also chapter books sold in the U.K. and Australia

 

Q: How many books in all are there?

A: There are currently 26 chapter books, 4 Adventure books, 3 Guide Books, and 8 Graphic Novels, totaling at 41 W.i.t.c.h. books

 

Q: What exactly are each of the chapter books, graphic novels, adventure books, and guides?

A: 1) Chapter Books- The W.i.t.c.h. chapter books are based on the initial storyline that are based on the comic issues. The U.S. (for some idiotic reason) decided that American girls would rather read chapter books than comics, so the chapter books based on each issue were made. Some pages of the comics are inserted in the front and back and there are almost always 144 pages in each book (verses the comic issue’s 60)

    2) Graphic Novels- Sometime after the U.S. had the chapter books, Disney decided to finally release the comics in the form of Graphic Novels. Each graphic novel contains two whole comic issues.

    3) Adventure Books- The W.i.t.c.h. Adventure Books are stories based on each of the Guardian’s own adventures. The entire book’s point of view is based on whichever girl is telling their story.

    4) Guide Books- Guide Books are made to help girls with things such as crushes, boys, and friends. They contain quizzes, emails, stories, diary entries, and advice from the Oracle and the Guardians on the topic of discussion.

 

Q: When do the chapter books and graphic novels usually come out?

A: The graphic novels, on an average, take 2-5 months to come out. The chapter books, on an average, take 2 months to come to bookstores and online. (From personal experience, if you want to get a book right when it comes out, preorder it and reserve it from a local bookstore. The books tend to come out a lot about a month before the initial release date, so always keep your eyes peeled! I find that amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com are very reliable to know exactly when a new book comes out. Try calling your local bookstore to find out for sure!)

 

Q: What about the comics?

A: The comic issues aren't made in the U.S. (outside of the Graphic Novels) but they are very well-known to the rest of the world. The W.i.t.c.h. comics were originally published in Italy by Elisabetta Gnone and are being published in over 50 countires and translated in over 20 different languages. You can find online comic issues at the sites listed in the links page.
