The Friday 56
I’ve been seeing these posts from various blogs that I follow and liked them because some have fun quotes within them. This is a Friday meme started by Freda @ Freda’s Voice.
- Grab a book, any book.
- Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
- Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
- Post it.
- Add your (url) post below (on Freda’s Friday posts) in Linky. Add the Friday post url, not your blog url.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling
Chapter Four, The Keeper of the Keys
I’m currently re-reading this series for my Harry Potter Read-Along (and Watch-Along) that I’m currently hosting.
This chapter is such a lovely one. Harry Potter is just learning the truth of who he is and what really happened to his parents. And then there’s Hagrid. This half-giant of a man who is lovable and kind in every way, and very loyal. So my favorite part here is of course when Hagrid casts a spell of Dudley, giving him a little curly pig’s tail.
“Something very painful was going on in Harry’s mind. As Hagrid’s story came to a close, he saw again the blinding flash of green light, more clearly than he had remembered it before – and her remembered something else, for the first time in his life: a high, cold, cruel laugh.”
