    Out of the seven Harry Potter books, which one is your favorite and why? I dunno if I can choose. :-)

      "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" because it was the best book in the series, in my opinion.

        I liked Chamber of Secrets and Prisoner of Azkaban. Imho, the series takes a darker turn after the third book that makes it less enjoyable...

      I love all Harry Potter series except the last one. The last one i felt finished in hurry.

      Deathly Hallows.
      I believe that Rowling brilliantly ended the series with all the mysteries ever given solved. She even answered why the Bloody Baron is bloody from the first book. Pure genius.

    Never read any of the books or seen the movies. I just have a thing about books & movies where kids are the main characters....even when I was a kid I didn't care for them..I'm weird I guess! smile

    I have never needed inspriation to read.... I have just always loved it. But the first 'real' books, as you put it, that I really loved to read were any By Jaquiline Wilson.

    Chamber of Secrets. The whole Tom Riddle mystery was well crafted. The diary was somewhat unique in the fantasy art. Dobby was hilarious. Hermoine was perhaps at her most interesting stage. And unike the other books (save Deadly Hallows & Sorcerer Stone), my boy Harry was at his most determined state-of-mind. Not even Satan could deter him from his goal.

    Now that's done...they died for their cause, and she had to kill some of them...they were bound to be somebody's favourites, so i guess that somebody turned out to be you....

    I know so many adults love reading Harry Potter, but  I have never felt the urge. My own mum reads them and she is in her sixties. Yet I just don't like reading fantasy books like that.

    It's funny, because my son is an avid reader and reads many books aimed at teenagers (he is 10), yet will not read Harry Potter - though he does like the films.

    I guess so it's me. I have no shame in admitting I'm a Harry Potter fan. I'm content with my adulthood. I read, write, and do to (1) have the experience, (2) learn, and (3) enjoy life. To each man his own.

    All the books by JK Rowling are my favorite.  Even Beedle The Bard and Quidditch Through The Ages.  She has a wonderful imagination and created a well-crafted story to match.

    There were parts of the books I wasn't too fond of though...such as Gwarp.  I didn't understand the reasoning to include him. (he didn't take care of Umbridge, the Centaurs did)  I also didn't understand why Umbridge was at Dumbledore's funeral. 

    As for the 7th book, I felt there hadn't been enough explanation about the magical education in order for Harry, Hermione, and Ron to accomplish their tasks.  I mean, in book 6, when Dumbledore tells Harry 'magic leaves a trace'  we don't hear of anyone learning how to find it or how it's used in the 7th book.  It just left me disappointed.

    I think the last 3 books were a bit rushed and that's why they turned out this way.

    All of the books in the series are wonderful, but if I had to choose a favorite, it would probably be Prisoner of Azkaban. Why? Sirius and time travel...what more could you want in a book?

    It's such a hard decision! I'm a little obsessed with the series. But my favorite is either Prisoner of Azkaban or Deathly Hallows.

    I like her pre-wizardry phase when she was writing erotica... like her tale about the sexual escapades of a train station employee in eastern Europe in her 1986 novel "The Hairy Porter"

      Her modern wizardry phase is still very much erotic... just change "wand" to "willy" and you'll see what I mean.

      "Harry took the willy. He felt a sudden warmth in his fingers. He raised the willy above his head, brought it swishing down through the dusty air and a stream of red and gold sparks shot from the end like a firework, throwing dancing spots of light on to the walls."

      "Yes," Harry said, gripping his willy very tightly, and moving into the middle of the deserted classroom. He tried to keep his mind on flying, but something else kept intruding.... Any second now, he might hear his mother again... but he shouldn't think that, or he would hear her again, and he didn't want to... or did he?"

      "Something silver-white, something enormous, erupted from the end of his willy."

      "What's got your willy in a knot?"

    Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. That book has something there that is amazing. All of them have that "magic" we all know, but the 5nd is awesome.
