Rain posted a topic in The Three BroomsticksThere are a lot of Harry Potter books including the students' books. From those, which of the books do you like the most and why? Give me atleast 2 books. For you to understand further, this is mine. I like "The Tales of Beedle The Bard". This is a book for witch and wizard children. I started reading when I was little and this book reminds me of my childhood. The stories that I had red back then. Good and Bad, some have Happy Endings and some that doesn't have. The time when I'm still innocent and I don't care about my surroundings. The next one is "Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them". I like it because I can see here the 3 friends without their worries. Just 3 typical friends having a chat on their book in some situations. I usually do this but not in a book. When there are situations that me and my friends can't talk personally even though we're close to each other, I'll take out a pad and that's where we'll talk. Funny that I can see this in them. So these are mine, so what are yours?
Hello! I'm Rain and I'm 18 years old. I'm a member of Iglesia Ni Cristo. I'm currently a First year college student in Polytechnic University of the Philippines. I love to read books since I was young. And I one time, my classmate lend me a Harry Potter book which is the fifth one. Since then, I started to read it and I find ways to read the others too. I love 'em all very much. I also watched the films but to my dismay, many scenes are gone while some where changed. I'm happy now to be a part of this and I wish I learn more things here and meet new people too.
Hey! I love of course the one and only JK Rowling because I was so inspired and awed by her works. I really really love them a lot. I've read the battle between good and bad. I also love Rick Riordan because of his Mythological works. I love myths so I'm glad to read his books
Dumbledore posted a topic in The Daily Prophet: News DiscussionJust 500 original copies of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, the first installment in the iconic fiction series. A RARE first-edition Harry Potter book has sold at auction for a record-breaking £60,000 - more than 5,000 times its original £10.99 price tag.

Published by Bloomsbury in 1997, it was was purchased for £10.99 and kept in pristine condition in a private collection in the UK. And spellbound bidders in the US last week propelled the final hammer price to $81,250 (£60,211). The book more than quadrupled its pre-auction estimate and set the world record for the highest price paid for an unsigned work of fiction published in the last 50 years. The previous record was held by a copy of the same book which sold for £43,750 last year - just 75 per cent of the price reached last week. Rare Books director at Heritage Auctions James Gannon said he was surprised by the record-breaking hammer price.
