wondering about certain books (off topic)

i was looking around to buy the harcover and paperback editions of the HP books i already have. i really dont like to read my hardcover ones alot because after a while they start to fall apart so i wanted the paperback ones, and i want the hardcover ones to collect. but anyway i came across some that were "adult editions". what exactly is the difference? is there any difference?

The U. K. printed "adult editions". The only difference is their cover art is not like the "children's editions". Story is grown-ups in the U. K. wanted to read the HP books but were embarrassed to be seen reading a children's book so Bloomsbury (the publisher) developed the adult covers.
