Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone | J.K. Rowling
"Turning the envelope over, his hand trembling, Harry saw a purple wax seal bearing a coat of arms; a lion, an eagle, a badger and a snake surrounding a large letter 'H'."Harry Potter has never even heard of Hogwarts when the letters start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in green ink on yellowish parchment with a purple seal, they are swiftly confiscated by his grisly aunt and uncle. Then, on Harry's eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed giant of a man called Rubeus Hagrid bursts in with some astonishing news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. An incredible adventure is about to begin!

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. 8h

This is a bigger chapter book, so I would probably read it to third or fourth graders and up. Young kids would love this book because it is supernatural, funny, and always grabs the readers' attention. I would say the theme of this book is friendship and courage (to defeat evil.)

I love the entire series. I've read them multiple times before. The first book is about Harry who lives with his crude aunt, uncle, and cousin because his parents were killed. On his birthday, he finds out he is a wizard and goes to school in Hogwarts where he makes friends and learns how to do all kinds of “wizard-like“ spells and things. During the book, someone is trying to steal the stone for Voldemort, and Harry tries to get it back.

“Not Slytherin, eh?“ said the small voice....“Well, if you're sure-better be GRYFFINDOR!“

I like this quote because the hat can read Harry's mind.

I like the part of the book when the magical hat sorts all of the Hogwart students into groups. I find it amusing, a talking hat.

I have seen the Harry Potter movies when I was younger but the books are always better than the movies. On Harry's eleventh birthday, he figures out he is the orphaned son of two powerful wizards. I think the first book is the best out of the series because he gets invited to attend Hogwarts, and he meets his best friends who help him discover the truth about his parents.

It was 1997 and my British BFF Heather kept talking about this book her grandma had sent her from the UK. She kept describing it as a kids book for adults about wizards--all I said to her at the time was “sounds lame.“ ;)

#Spell #ChillingPhotoChallenge #TeamStoker #Scarathlon @TheReadingMermaid @Clwojick

+1 point (3 Points total)

TheReadingMermaid Sweetie I have you down as 6 points for the total as of this month (if you are trying to keep track) 🧟‍♀️ 2w
Jesstifies @TheReadingMermaid Really!? I'm not one to turn down points...but I thought I had: +1 for #haunted, +1 #spell (both from the ChillingPhotoChallenge) and then +1 for watching The Craft as part of the overall scarathlon, which would be 3 total? Perhaps I'm still fuzzy on how the points work?
(edited) 2w
TheReadingMermaid No worries sweetie let me break it down for you, so when you post that you've read a book or that you have watched a film you get the points for the film or the book and then you get an extra point for the participation post. 😁 2w

Jesstifies @TheReadingMermaid hum. Ok questions still remain! So for the photo challenge in particular, I thought we were just supposed to post book covers that remind us of the prompt each day, I didn‘t realize we needed to read the book to do the ChillingPhotoChallenge. For example I posted about Casper, but didn‘t read that book on Oct 1st. Sounds like I‘m doing it wrong? 2w
TheReadingMermaid Oh no honey you're not doing it wrong. For the photo challenge it's simply whatever books remind you of the prompt. It's for the scavenger hunt that you have to read the book in order to finish the prompt. I mean of course we don't expect you to read a book a day that would be insane 😂😂😂 and trust me I know because I've done it in a month 😲😂 2w
Jesstifies @TheReadingMermaid ha ok! So that makes sense for the scavenger hunt. But how can the photo challenge be two points, since we‘re not reading anything? Thanks and sorry for the all the questions!! (edited) 2w
TheReadingMermaid The photo challenge is only worth one point per post. because the photo challenge is a participation post in and of itself. But for books and movies you are getting the points for the books and for the movies and for the posts that you make. Does that make sense? 2w
Jesstifies @TheReadingMermaid ok yeah! I did two photo challenges for 1 point each and one Movie w/ participation post, so that‘s 4 points total then (1+1+2)? 🤪🙃 2w

Harry Potter thought he was a normal 11 year old boy that lived in a cabnit under the stairs. But then he met Hagrid, grounds keeper of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where he finds new friends,rivals,learns to play Quidditch and about his past.The tone of this book is sad and hopefull,it imbodys the sadness of tragic loss,and hope of finding his purpose,If you like good adventures and astonishing explinations,this is a book for you!!

#BannedBookRecommendation
This is the one and only book I actually had some one rip me a new one because I was reading this to my daughter.
We have read this as a family. Listened to the audiobooks on trips. Of all the books - this book has sparked conversations on friendship, peer-pressure, doing the right thing when no one else is with you, racism, mentorship, outright evil (Voldemort), and concealed evil (Umbridge)
I could go on. and on.

Readergrrl I am glad to hear that you continued to read this despite someone else‘s opinion. I‘ve become convinced that most book banners have never actually read the book they want banned. And, not to stir the pot, but I believe that Harry Potter has taught children much more about friendship, family, compassion, faith in humanity, and morality than some other *ahem* books I‘ve read. 3w
Slajaunie My daughter began to read these when she was in the third grade. People kept telling not to allow her to read them that they encouraged magic and such. I decided to read them myself to find out. I fell in love! We did the midnight releases of the books and movies after that. It was years of shared love of the books for my daughter and me. We had HP parties and dressed up. It was wonderful and I wish I could do it all again with her. 3w

A guy came into the store last night, talking in the phone about getting a gift for his GF. He came to the cash register with a Hufflepuff apron & a Gryffindor spatula. I got a deer-in-the-headlights look when I asked if he knew what house she was in. I managed to convince him to go with the Hufflepuff apron, the Hogwarts crest spatula, & a gift receipt. Good luck man.

This was a really great book! I mean come on, it's Harry Potter. Lol This is my second time reading this book in hopes of reading the rest soon after. After this first book I'm looking forward to reading the others. So good! I love the setting, the characters and all the adventures these three friends go on. Good fall read for sure. 😊

xicanti @Avidreader25 it‘s got French sounds in it and I‘ve never found a good way to represent those phonetically, but Jim Dale says bez- so the Z is like the sound at the start of Zsa Zsa Gabor‘s name and -oar is like noir without the N. 3w
