Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1)
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Book 1) | J.K. Rowling
"This special edition of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer s Stone" has a gorgeous new cover illustration by Kazu Kibuishi. Inside is the full text of the original novel, with decorations by Mary GrandPre. "Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has never worn a cloak of invisibility. All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley a great big swollen spoiled bully. Harry s room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn t had a birthday party in eleven years. But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to an incredible place that Harry and anyone who reads about him will find unforgettable. For it s there that he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic in everything from classes to meals, but a great destiny that s been waiting for him if Harry can survive the encounter. "

Twenty years late to the game for this one and I will concur that it proves worthy of every five star review it has received. Perfect for all ages and a wonderful addition to any book lover‘s collection.

Three words: HARRY POTTER WALLPAPER. I may need to redecorate my house, I'm actually a bit obsessed with the dark "Black Family Tree" print ?

Mitch Very cool - I‘ve walked past their shop a bunch of times, guess I should pop in. ( And it‘s just behind Foyles - add it to the list @Soubhiville !) (edited) 3d
GrilledCheeseSamurai I saw this on instagram. In their 'stories' they have pictures that you can screenshot for phone wallpapers so I grabbed em! ❤️ 3d

Been waiting to share HP for so long! I think he was confused a bit by so many characters, but still definitely enjoyed it. Waiting a bit for book 2, then might add another book every year? I think that‘s my plan. I wanna share them all with him now, but they get so dark as they progress. #mordecaireads

“Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hoggy Warty Hogwarts,
Teach us something please,
Whether we be old and bald
Or young with scabby knees,

Our heads could do with filling
With some interesting stuff,
For now they‘re bare and full of air,
Dead flies and bits of fluff,
So teach us things worth knowing,
Bring back what we‘ve forgot,
Just do your best, we‘ll do the rest,
And learn until our brains all rot.”

I couldn't fight it anymore. Today I bought The Philosophers Stone Ravenclaw hardcover edition.

Yes, I already own 2 other complete sets (as well the illustrated editions as they come out) but now I'm gonna get the Ravenclaw set too. 🤷‍♂️

I'm so weak when it comes to Harry Potter. 😜

One of the good things about my new e-reader is I can download ebooks from my local library so I thought I'd give Harry Potter a go and I quite liked it. I've put a hold on the second book, so I can read it as soon as it becomes available.

I just did a re-read of the first 3 in the HP series. I had forgotten how delightful they are! So much better than the movies!! Rowlings attention to details, character development and tackling of serious issues is magical itself. I probably won‘t be able to stop reading now. https://cannonballread.com/2019/09/harry-potter-and-the-sorcerers-stone-and-harr...

@mrsmarch Thank you so so much for the absolutely wonderful #fallathogwarts box!!!! The bookmarks, pencil pouch, and Gryffindor lanyard fill my Harry Potter soul with delight 😊 And oh my!

Can't wait for my other gift to arrive!

Long weekends mean full and deep house cleanings so I switched from paperback to audiobook for the time being.

I‘m embarrassed to say this is my first time listening to an audiobook and I gotta say, I‘m hooked. I think it‘ll only be something I do when re-reading and cleaning since I just like the feel of holding a new book too much, but oh boy this is great.

Is there any better book to read today?

Featuring a sneaky peek at my 9 3/4 ankle tattoo. For those curious; it is outlined in red for my very Gryffindor self as a child, although, as an adult I fall more in the Ravenclaw camp. I claim both really.

Caroline2 I love that front cover! 😯 3w

It‘s been years (and years and years) since I last read the first Harry Potter book. Listening to Stephen Fry narrate it was just so divine.

Jeg After book week at school I decided I really needed to get into Harry. It has never appealed to me. But I‘m now “ in the loop” 😊. I watched all the movies and I‘m about to read the books. Never done it that way around before. Usually book then film. My grandson will be very happy. And yes I did enjoy the story. 4w
Joanne1 @Jeg I‘d highly recommend the audiobook with Stephen Fry narrating. Welcome to the world of Potter by the way. 4w

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.

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. 1mo

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
