Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Illustrated Edition
Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Illustrated Edition | J.K. Rowling
The landmark publishing event of 2015 -- a full-colour illustrated edition of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone with breathtaking illustrations by Jim Kay, winner of the Kate Greenaway medal.      Prepare to be spellbound by Jim Kay's dazzling depiction of the wizarding world and much loved characters in this full-colour illustrated hardback edition of the nation's favourite children's book -- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Brimming with rich detail and humour that perfectly complements J.K. Rowling's timeless classic, Jim Kay's glorious illustrations will captivate fans and new readers alike.      When a letter arrives for unhappy but ordinary Harry Potter, a decade-old secret is revealed to him that apparently he's the last to know. His parents were wizards, killed by a Dark Lord's curse when Harry was just a baby, and which he somehow survived. Leaving his unsympathetic aunt and uncle for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry stumbles upon a sinister mystery when he finds a three-headed dog guarding a room on the third floor. Then he hears of a missing stone with astonishing powers, which could be valuable, dangerous -- or both. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

All of this was pretty accurate until the part about me loving audiobooks and dog-earring books. *Gasp* I‘d never! When I forget a bookmark I use whatever is in my purse or book bag so gum wrappers, cough drop wrappers and my work badge lol.

What Harry Potter owl are you?

thebacklistbook I got Errol too, but it wasn't even close for me. I love hiking when my knees are up to it. And I have never met a classic I didn't want to scrub from existence. Me thinks the quiz might have been more fun if it was extended to familiars, not just owls. 3d

Years have passed since I last reread the series and it was a delight to rediscover details that I have already forgotten. For example, during the train ride to Hogwarts in the movie, it was Ron who first learned about Harry whereas in the book, it was actually the Weasley twins who first found out about him. Also, Hermione didn't actually sit with Ron and Harry during the train ride. She was busy helping Neville look for Trevor. 😂#IRediscovered

I just finished the Harry Potter Kindle in motion edition. I don't know why I'm such a sucker for Kindle in motion books.
I really enjoyed the artwork. I'm assuming it's the same artwork as in the illustrated editions. I hope the other books are made into Kindle in motion. In a way it's kind of nice since the pictures in the wizarding world move 😋

We‘ve decided to do a movie marathon of all seven over the next few days. So excited to start them on this, hopefully I can convince them to read the books next!

I have been meaning to re-read the Harry Potter series for a long time, and after finishing Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, I am SO glad that I'm finally making time in my reading life to do it. ⠀

This first novel has never been my favorite (book or movie)--I like it when the stories get darker--and for a few moments, I felt . . . impatient to get to the later books. And then. Rowling's magic hit me. Hermione's brilliance. ⬇️

UnabridgedPod Harry's deep intention to do what's right, even if there are negative consequences for him. Neville's trembling bravery. Hagrid. Hagrid. I love him so much. Yes, this is going to be a great experience.⠀

When is the last time you read Sorcerer's Stone? How do you feel about this first entry in the series?
3w
Soubhiville I reread the series with the Litsy chapter a day crew a few years ago. It was my third time reading them. I agree that this one is lighter and younger feeling than the rest of the series, but I still love it. I‘m glad you‘re falling in love with the characters all over again. It‘ll always be a favorite of mine! 3w
UnabridgedPod @Soubhiville I love the chapter-a-day idea. That would be a nice way to work through the series. 😀 3w
limada I did Chapter-a-day reading for the series a couple of years ago as well. Works out to something like 188 chapters so not even a year's worth, which made me feel much less guilty for re-reading when I had a ton of books I hadn't read yet waiting for me. 3w

My latest video, in which I talk about Harry Potter, social anxiety, and Brigid Kemmerer (an interesting mix), is now up for viewing! https://youtu.be/ry1uMdIpU1U

#booktuber #readingharrypotterforthefirsttime #meetinganauthor #signedbyauthor

EadieB @Butterflyamore Loved your video and your hair today! I've never read Harry Potter either but my husband has read all the books. His birthday is July 30th and that was around the time a new one would come out so that was his birthday present all those years. I have watched all the movies and loved them so to now read the books would be redundant for me and I don't really read fantasy. I'm glad you enjoyed them. 4w
EadieB @Butterflyamore I have a bit of a social anxiety too but different from yours. I used to be very active in my community. President of the Woman's Club of Perkasie and I was involved in local politics and became to first woman president of Perkasie Borough Council which was probably the worst experience of my entire life and I was involved for 12 years. I now cannot stand to be around negative and complaining people. I food shop in another town. 4w
EadieB @Butterflyamore Anyway glad you were able to meet the author and I wouldn't feel bad about thinking you are weird as I find myself very weird and I think everyone is a bit weird in their own right. I have come to the point in my life that I really don't care anymore what people think about me. I be my weird self and if they don't like it then they can move on. I would never think you lacked some self confidence because the videos don't show it. 4w

You know, I‘d be okay with more adult literature containing illustrations. It makes me more engaged!This is Harry Potter so technically for a younger audience and I‘d be engaged regardless, but why do illustrated texts seem to stop when we grow up???

Random list of books I want illustrated:
The Snow Child
The Earthsea Cycle
LOTR but that probably exists already
Shadow of the Wind/Everything by Zafón

What text would you like to see illustrated?

bookandbedandtea That's a great idea! I'd enjoy illustrated versions of Redshirts by John Scalzi, The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley, and Unmarriageable by Soniah Kamal. 1mo
