It was extremely entertaining. I sometimes wish Quirrel wasn't dead...he made things interesting.

Does anyone enjoy reading the series backwards? I find it fasinating...you pick up on little things more easily.

You have NO IDEA how hard that made me laugh! I'm still wiping away the tears. Soooooo random and FUNNY! There's so much random/funny crap in the movies. Like in movie 4 when the boys of Gryffindor eat those candies and then Ron roars like a lion and Harry's a train! Too funny unnecessary, but that's why it was so entertaining! :lol:

Sounds interesting actually. In fact, doing that with most series would be a good way to catch everything. If I wasn't so...obsessive and compulsive about doing things in order...still sounds intruguing though. Going back in time? Hahaha time turner!!

Hahahaah that scene! It's so completely random, that's why I love it!!!
I wish we had those candies in real life, I can waste away hours with a box of those things.

I was reading the first book to my cousin, who is eight, and it's so amazing to pick up on all the stuff that now is totally obvious. Well, it's not obvious when all you had was the first book, but once you've read seven it's like "How did I not realize?!" You guys probably understand what I meant. I just love the fact that everything is so intertwined. I don't think many authors have as many loose ends to tie up as Jo did . . . But then again, most authors don't write a series of seven books that are mostly really long.

Yeah, Jo drops little hints that you would've never seen before but after reading DH it's like "why didn't I see that before?!?!"
