    Which Book is The Best?

    So far, I only know Harry Potter from their films. I never got into the books. I wonder which book should I read first? For a note, I don't mind not starting from the book one. I just want to read the best written book in the HP series. Which book do you think is the best? I probably prefer more to a book with many characters introduction, or maybe characters deep study, I like dark theme, and maybe less fights. My most favorite movies so far are Prisoner of Azkaban and Half-Blood Prince. So, what d
  2. Harry Potter has since became such an a global phenomenon that it’s hard to see the full scope what it accomplished over the years. J.K. Rowling was an unknown single mom when she first got the idea for her story while stuck on a train; the small UK children’s press that ultimately took a chance on it undoubtedly couldn’t have predicted that it would have a measurable effect on everything it touched. Now one of the biggest forces in pop culture, it changed the way that businesses published books for kids. It’s remarkable that Harry Potter was rejected from no less than nine different publ
  3. Morning all, I’ve recently picked up the Poldark series while watching the tv show. However, since series 5 doesn’t actually follow the books I thought I’d make a start on the rest. I believe there’re around 12 books? I maybe wrong. Similar to the Harry Potter books in a sense that it’s been adapted to the screen, the books go into so much more detail about other characters which makes a lot more sense than the TV show. Plot: Into the 1780s and 1790s, Capt. Ross Vennor Poldark returns from the American War of Independence to his home Nampara in C

    Wand Cores

    As we know the Mr. Ollivander we are familiar with only works with three kinds of wand core, unicorn horn, dragon heart string and phoenix feather but his father worked with many other kinds. He tells us on pottermore these cores are the most reliable, but I think varied cores would be much cooler. I for one would love a mermaid hair core wand, or a giant squid tentacle core. What about a hippogriff feather core? Or a Sphinx hair core? The possibilities are endless! I decided early on in my business to create wands with unique and personal cores like these, visit my website to check them out!
  5. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone vs Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone So why did the name change? It dates back to when the rights were sold for the first book: Scholastic Corporation bought the U.S. publishing rights for what was then known as Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, forking out a comparably high $105,000 for the privilege. It was changed by the American publisher, Scholastic, because it thought American children wouldn't want to read a book with "philosopher" in the title. Eventually, the author suggested Sorcerer's Stone, and that's how the boo
  6. Harry Potter has had a huge impact on today’s generation for those who’ve grown up reading and watching these books and films. Which movies or books have made a biggest impact on you? We'd love to hear your experiences! Have the books/movies helped you through a bad time, maybe they just bring you joy?

    Paperback Vs. Hardcover Books

    I'm not talking about just the Harry Potter books, but in general. There are pros and cons to both such as hardcover books being heavier and sometimes harder to hold, and paperback books rip and tear easily. Even so, paperback books are easier to carry and hold, hardcover books look beautiful on the shelf and might be a tad bit more durable with books you know you're going to read over and over again. I could compare all day, but if I had to choose, I'd pick paperback for the price and the fact that they're easier to handle. The only books I have that HAD to be hardcover are the Ha
  8. Cant get the image thing to work! Hope for help here! I have a fantastic beasts book, it has writing in it obvs but it seems more than it should be! My book is second hand from amazon so could be someone elses writing! Mine is the green covered one, hard back published 2012! Hope link works

  10. I think that the original Ron and Hermione kiss was epic. I loved it, and I think it was important that Harry was there. The movie kiss was weird.

    Scottish Acromantula Nest

    So, i recently read Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them and i noticed that its said that there is an Acromantula nest rumoured to be located in scotland. Naturaly i instantly assumed that it was the colony located in the Forbidden Forest... but after thinking about it a little bit more i thought that Newt would have surely published his book before Hagrid had attented Hogwarts. i was right, Newt Scamander published his book in 1927 and the colony was established in 1943 when Hagrid released Aragog into the Forbidded Forest. Was this just a simple mistake on JK's part? or is there a second

    Books vs. Movies

    Normally, movie adaptations of books are not as good, but I have noticed some exceptions, like The Princess Bride, Movie: One of the best ever, Book: Not so good. Harry Potter books are way better, and the movies often mess up important scenes. Espeially kiss scenes. The one that was supposed to take place in the Room of Requirement took place in the Chamber of Secrets, and the one that was supposed to take place in the common room took place in the Room of Requirement. *sad sigh*
  13. When did you first read the series? How old were you? Did you read them in order? Before or after the movies? I first read the books when Prizoner of Azkaban was released on DVD. After watching the film i was overly eager to find out what happend next! I just hated the wait between the rest of the series in order to read the last book.

  15. A question that I'm sure will have some fantastic and creative answers... Many characters in the Harry Potter movies were taken away from us. But who do you feel was the absolute worst to read or watch? And as a side note; who of them didn't deserve it? 50pts to the most creative answers.
  16. Is there anything in the Harry Potter films that you like more than in the books? As a Muggle, is there any parts or particular scenes in the movies that you like more than in the books? I personally watched the films before reading the books, but I've loved finding out more in depth explanations. I might speak for a few people here, but as the Prisoner of Azkaban is my favourite in the series I loved reading about the Marauder's Map. I'm not very good at imaginging what things look like within my head so to be able to see what it looks like in the films was a piece of art. So, wha
  17. Hey everyone! With J.K.Rowling every so often adding to the Harry Potter canon, I wanted to know if there were any parts of the canon you wish would be expanded upon. Even the reveal about how the plumbing system came to be asks more questions than it answers - for example, how did the plumbers not question how big the pipes are? Where does the waste go? Why does it seem like the bathrooms are in the most random of places? One of the questions I want answered is: What actually constitutes under age magic and how it's reported? The book canon implies one thing, bu
  18. The Harry Potter directors took the movies in different directions over the years capturing the magic of the books. What film in the series do you believe was able to really capture the heart of the books, despite a restrictive run time? Would you've sat through a 3+ hour film?

    Me

    Hello, I'm Renai Leeben Villanueva and I'm 18 years old. I am a member of Iglesia ni Cristo. When I was young, I've been seeing a lot of Harry Potter films but I didn't care much about it. But when my classmate in grade 5 lend me a Harry Potter book, that's the time I begin to like it. After I finished the book, a Potterhead friend of mine tell me stories about it and I did everything to finish reading all the books and and I also have watched the movies but to my dissmay, a lot was gone and changed. I join a lot of groups about HP and until now, I still love 'em. HP gives me inspi
