I've been rereading all Harry Potter books in anticipation of the last movie coming out this summer.
When I first read the books I started with book 3 (Prisoner of Azkaban). We had to read a Harry Potter book for school. I had no idea what Harry Potter was at the time (this was back in 2001 or 2002) and didn't actually know I had picked up the third book. Through my reread I've realized this is the first book in the series that is really hard to put down. The first 2 are good, but the third is great!
I've also realized that book 5 (Order of the Phoenix) is really hard to get through. First of, it's long and second, mopey Harry is really hard to sympathise with. A book where you can't sympathise with the hero is a hard read, at least in my opinion.
What's your favourite book in the series?
Oh, I know, it just irks me. Plus I'm fairly sure it was Professor McGonagall who gave out the punishment there... but I could totally see her being harder on her own house. But given the circumstances I think the danger should've made the punishment worse than it was.
I preordered the forthcoming Dear Mr. Potter tonight. The book looks AWESOME and I love reading stories of how the books have touched people's lives. http://www.dearmrpotter.org/
The Potter books are now available on the kindle!!
How do I get them?
The Amazon website or Pottermore.com
Pottermore has a deal where you can buy the whole set, I don't know if they had that on the Amazon website. Books were $7.99 - $9.99 each
Here is a link to the Pottermore store http://shop.pottermore.com/en_US
They are also on the front page of Amazon at the moment.
Wow! This is SO AWESOME!
I just purchased the complete set and the are ON MY KINDLE :)
My favourite is DEFINITELY the last one - mainly because Harry finally defeats Voldemort, but also because the trio are alot more grown up and moving away from the anguish of being a teenager.
Number 4. I too have read all the books both myself and to my kids. They loved Harry! We got to go to a book signing with JK Rowling and she was nice as pie! My son asked her if she was Harry;s mother....she laughed and told him that was the best question ever! Problem was we had to wait months to years for the next book to come out!
