My husband, adult daughter, son-in-law and I are all visiting Universal in Orlando. She insisted on getting an interactive wand (barely visible in the photo). I insisted on getting a copy of the first book and reading it. Somehow I've read all the books but the first one. The best part of the trip has been the afternoons. We all go back to the hotel and read. 😁

Texreader Our family has been there three(!) times! And Warner Bros studios near London once. Crazy fans, right? Hope you continue to have a fabulous time! 6h
Sace @Texreader it doesn't matter how old she is, I love watching her in The Wizarding World. Harry was such a huge part of her childhood. Warner Bros in London? That must have been amazi g 6h
Sace *amazing 6h

Texreader @Sace It was the ultimate, once you‘ve done Universal. It has actual sets and all the props etc. They shot some parts of movies there, too. You take a tour so there‘s a bus you catch in London for about 1-1/2 hour drive. Then you spend several hours at the studio before returning. Well worth it. 4h
Sace @Texreader 😍 Ohhhh....that sounds wonderful. I'll have to put that on my bucket list. 4h
Laura317 Loved this place. I have an interactive wand too. I chose Hermione‘s. What did y‘all choose? 4h
Sace @Laura317 Offspring got Jenny Weasley's. The rest of us just watch her wave it around at each stop on the map. 🤣 4h
Laura317 Hah! I did the same. My husband and daughter rolled their eyes as my son and I played. 4h
Sace @Laura317 Her husband keeps saying "you're 30." My husband keeps saying "That's your wife." and laughing hysterically. ??? My family cracks me up. 4h
Laura317 @Sace Well I was 53 when we went. I don‘t know what that says about me. Daughter was 14 and son was 9. 4h
Sace @Laura317 to be honest I'd like to get one next time we go 😂 3h

My current view of Diagon Alley as I hold the bags and wait for my family on the ride! I can squeeze in reading time anywhere. My current read is a reread of Northanger Abbey and Jane is not pulling any punches.

ALSO, I‘m sitting on the steps of Gringott‘s, on the roof of which a fire breathing dragon is perched—I can feel the heat from its periodic roaring flame!

saresmoore @BarbaraBB They‘ve done such a fantastic job. Every tiniest bit of the design and architecture is intentional and Rowling was heavily involved. Flourish & Blott‘s through Knockturn Alley is one of my favorite parts. 1d

J.K. Rowling inspired us with her fantastic ideas inside her amazingly talented mind, this book is fancy, touching, and quite humorous, people like something for a reason that's not only understandable but also clear. And in this case, I suppose that anyone who's read this book would understand how it resulted in success.

"Feeling sentimental?"
Yes, that's why I was reading this again. I get a little nostalgic when I haven't visited the Potterverse for awhile.

Littens! Lend me your eyes! Again! Hehehe ?
Please and Thank you ?

I thought I would upload a larger image of Nerdy Post's "Harry Potter Re-covered Collection" so y'all could appreciate the details. In addition to the dust jackets, the pre-order will include seven exclusive pins like the little Hedwig pictured at the bottom.

Thank you for today‘s #FriYayIntro @howjessreads

1. Trivial Pursuit 🧐

2. Australia 🇦🇺

3. Not so good! I planned to read a lot more, but work has been relentless this year! 😓

4. J.K. Rowling! I avoided Harry Potter for years thinking it couldn‘t possibly live up to the hype, then finally read the first book and found out it did! 🙈

5. What book make a huge impact on you? 📚

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I used to love trivial pursuit!!! I Know This Much is True is a book that has stuck with me for years 💔💔💔 2w
wanderinglynn So many! But A Prayer for Owen Meany is the first one to pop in my head. Such a powerful opening line! 2w

DaveGreen7777 @wanderinglynn Oooh, I‘ll have to check that book out! 😀 2w
wanderinglynn It‘s sooooo good. A powerful story. To tempt you further, the first line: “I am doomed to remember a boy with a wrecked voice—not because of his voice, or because he was the smallest person I ever knew, or even because he was the instrument of my mother's death, but because he is the reason I believe in God; I am a Christian because of Owen Meany.” 2w
AmandaEve I‘d say either Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro or The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera ☺️ 2w
vivastory Most recently (in the past year) I'd say Lord of The Rings. I think it's one of the wisest books ever written. 2w
ljuliel The Five People You Meet in Heaven , because I‘ve always believed that same thing, that we are destined to meet people who will somehow interconnect with someone or something else that happens to you. It all links together. Sorta like What Goes Around Comes Around and if you need a lesson, life will slap one right into your lap. We need to be more alert and watch how it all comes together. It‘s fascinating. 2w

A close up of the amethyst and crystal wand! 💜🖤💜🖤

And look who was my mystery Funko...Harry wearing the Sorting hat!! I never get that lucky!

Our morning got off to a terrible start, late school bus so I had to drive Maya to school in rush hour traffic, which is 1 hr+ round trip. And lots of tears from a friend backing out from trick or treating tonight for a “better option”. 😬 This lifted my mood when I got home.

Meaw_catlady Sorry your day started rough! Hope things getting better ! Harry is so cute! 🖤 3w

squirrelbrain It wasn‘t that bad @Cinfhen @RachelO ... I‘d already read it in English and all of the characters‘ names are the same. In many languages they change the names to be more meaningful in that language, but in Spanish they stay the same. What do they do in German @julesg? 3w
Kimberlone I have had this on my shelf for so long and still haven‘t gotten up the will to try and read it. I‘m pretty proficient in Spanish and can carry on conversations pretty well, but I‘ve never read more than a short story in Spanish so a whole book is intimidating. The good this is I know the HP story so well that at least I would be able keep the plot straight. 3w
squirrelbrain Give it a go @Kimberlone - it‘s really quite easy compared to many Spanish texts. I‘m sure you‘ll enjoy it! 3w
squirrelbrain @Sace 😁👍 3w
Kimberlone @squirrelbrain thanks for the encouragement! I have a vacation planned to South America and I might bring it with me 3w
Sace Another good creepy read is Aura. Pretty much all present tense and quite short. 3w
julesG Impressive! Yes, they've changed some names, ainly of minor characters, and some of the places. Also, a few of the spells are different. 3w

Lunch break with some sweet tangerine tea and good old Harry

Couldn‘t go my whole life never reading Harry Potter, so now I can finally check this off my TBR list.

This was a fun quick read centering around Harry and his two best friends at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. I loved seeing Harry, who had grown up with so little, get to experience so much with people who truly cared about him.

Even though I knew the twist in the ending beforehand, it is still well done. Overall, very enjoyable.

Scochrane26 I like the first two, but they get really great with the third. 3w
KristenDuck @Scochrane26 I had a friend say the same thing. I feel like the movie was (almost) the same at the book. Didn‘t gain much more. 3w

Scochrane26 @KristenDuck the movies aren‘t great. I really like the 3rd movie (it‘s also usually my fave book), it‘s directed by Alfonso Cuaron. I don‘t like the 4th movie but think it‘s the funniest. Liked the rest. The books are definitely better in this case, there‘s just more storyline & details from the 3rd on. (edited) 3w
KristenDuck @Dawnrod1970 which was your favorite so far ? 3w
Dawnrod1970 I have to say the one I am currently reading. I also enjoyed Goblet of Fire. @KristenDuck (edited) 3w

Shelbybooks I‘m on my first read of the series and I just finished Sorcerers Stone! I love it. Never got the hype when I was younger, I was about 6 when the first movie came out. But I‘m so happy I‘m reading them now when I can actually appreciate it! 1mo
janeycanuck @Shelbybooks haha - six is a bit young! I hope you continue to love it. If you enjoy podcasts, there‘s a great one called Potterless where a young guy is reading it for the first time, very funny. There‘s also a lovely one called Harry Potter and the Sacred Text and they read each chapter with a theme. 1mo

Unpopular opinion time. I‘m not sure if I didn‘t know how much better the series gets (from watching the movies) if I would continue. I know that‘s probably blasphemous to some but that ending was just...lackluster. This is one time where I think the movie was better *gasp* I know. I‘m moving on to The Chamber of Secrets as I‘ve been promised by pretty much everyone that get better and better.

britt_brooke I read this first one several years ago and was pretty underwhelmed. I haven‘t read any of the others, but when my sons are old enough, I probably will. 1mo
brittanythebookdragon @britt_brooke I was fairly underwhelmed too. I definitely found myself going oh yeah, these were geared toward a much younger audience than a 33 year old. 😂 I kind of feel like without the movies to supplement, the world actually wouldn‘t have come to life for me solely based upon the writing... 1mo

Shelbybooks I love this book cover. Where did you find it? 1mo
brittanythebookdragon @Shelbybooks It‘s actually the Kindle Version. I‘ve just hidden my iPad a little bit. Haha. They‘re all available on Kindle Unlimited right now and this particular one is available through Prime Reading. 🙂 1mo
Shelbybooks @brittanythebookdragon oh I see the kindle now 🤣 do you like to read on it? I‘ve never read on an ebook reader before. 1mo
brittanythebookdragon @Shelbybooks I actually use the iPad because for me it gives me more options. I just download the Kindle App and the Nook app so I have the option for Amazon books or Barnes and Noble. Ebooks are okay but I usually prefer an actual book in my hands. Since I don‘t own the Harry Potter books, reading them this way is much cheaper. 1mo
