Hi Helen! Glad you could do this! I agree V's snake is very scary! And an invisibility cloak - what an awesome answer!

LOL "ship" means relationships, like some people really thought Harry and Hermione ought to get together. :D

I recently picked up Harry Potter, I'm going to give it another try. I liked "The Goblet of Fire" movie.

I made it to one midnight release party at a big bookstore, all because my best friend (who is now 60) is the biggest Harry Potter fan and wanted to go, even though we owned a small bookstore together and had the pre-shipment of HP books to sell the next day. It was kind of fun watching all the kids running around, but a bit confusing that Harry Potter and Harry Potter and Harry Potter were all running in different directions.

My favorite character is Hermione, stemming from the time she managed early in their years at Hogwarts School to be in two places at once -- just so she could take an extra class! We nerds have gotta stick together. I took a required class in summer school because it met at the same time as another class I wanted during the regular school year. I had way more hours than I needed to graduate!

Amanda--I couldn't remember the snake's name! And just think of the conversations you could hear with the invisibility cloak...of course, think of the ones you don't want to hear!

Marie--Start with book number one! I hope you enjoy it

Bonnie--I LOVED that Hermione could be in two places at once! It's one of my favorite things in the books.
