About ElmBlade43

I'm a big HP fan re-reading the series in e-book form. Unfortunately it won't let me list them as the books I'm reading. I guess because you don't buy them straight thru Amazon.

    No one, ever, in his whole life, had written to him. Who would? He had no friends, no other relatives — he didn’t belong to the library, so he’d never even got rude notes asking for books back.

    Note: First letter from Hogwarts arrrives.

    A man appeared on the corner the cat had been watching, appeared so suddenly and silently you’d have thought he’d just popped out of the ground.
    Note: The first ever mention of Albus Dumbledore, and I think it's a fitting entrance for him.

    Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four, Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. They were the last people you’d expect to be involved in anything strange or mysterious,
