Throughout the Harry Potter books, there are some variations between the Bloomsbury (British) and Scholastic (American) editions. Below the first section on "Philosopher's vs. Sorcerer's" is a section on other different terminologies used.

Philosopher's vs. Sorcerer's

When Scholastic was publishing Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in America, they decided to rename the book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. They claimed that the American and British uses of the word philosopher were a bit different, so therefore sorcerer was a più appropriate word. Any true Harry Potter fan, American...

*DISCLAIMER* I did not come up with any of these, I found them all online and put them together...the links which i used are cited in the description. So let's not waste any più time and get started with the 50 random Harry Potter Facts!!

1) Hermione's last name was going to be Puckle.
2) Hedwig was played da a male in the movies.
3) If a Muggle were to come across Hogwarts, all they would see was a sign that said, "Keep out, dangerous building."

HOGWARTS STAFF
Headmaster Albus Dumbledore: His first name is from the Latin word alba, "white." His last name, according to Rowling interviews, is Old English for "bumblebee." In colour symbolism, white often stands for purity, so the headmaster's name suggests honour and a hard-working nature ("busy as a bee").
Professor Binns: A bin is a large storage container. A dustbin is British English for a garbage can. This boring professor could be described as a ghostly storage for information that many Hogwarts students view as rubbish.
Headmaster Armando Dippet: Armando is from the name Armand,...

A snowball sailed through the air, nearly missing a blonde head as it hit a tree.

I decided to write this articolo because I have seen many commenti lately that kind of bother me.

There are several picks in which this has come up, but the last one I have seen, and the reason why I am Scrivere this is the question: ¿Have te completely changed your attitude towards a character after reading/watching their past stories? (or something along those lines)

It is a really interesting question, and what really caught my attention were the answers, the comments, especially since it wasn't the first time that I am Leggere commenti like those.

The thing is that in that pick, James...

 Bellatrix Lestrange
Bellatrix Lestrange
I have been on the Harry Potter spot for a while now and I constantly find myself getting asked "why do te like Bellatrix?" So I decided to type up this article. Thank te lifeisgoodx3 for inspiring me to do so.

So why would some one like a person who killed Sirius, Dobby, Tonks, and tortured Hermione and the Longbottms? Well I actually have multiple reasons as to why I like her; Bellatrix stands for what she believes in, she's crazy and funny, pretty, unique, strong and confident, she has an interesting story behind her, I can relate to her, she has potential to be a good guy, and I have a...

Harry Potter and the Philosopher/Sorcerer's Stone
For Jessica, who loves stories, for Anne, who loved them too, and for Di, who heard this one first.
Explanation: Jessica is JK Rowling’s twelve-year-old daughter. Anne was Jo’s mother, who, unfortunately, died of Multiple Sclerosis on December 30th, 1990. Dianne, o “Di," is Jo’s younger sister who she read Philosopher/Sorcerer’s Stone before Jo sent it off to be reviewed.

I'm basing this review mostly on J.K. Rowling's official words and a little on the books's content. I write this regarding how the domanda of the educating style is often pondered and some even think "all pure-bloods were home schooled".

The purity of one's blood is not relevant to how a child is schooled before Hogwarts. With the exception of families like Malfoys o Blacks who would probably die before sending their kids amongst muggles to learn anything. But whatever few pure-blood families there were left - as far as I see - most of them are not known to be like those two, but have a respectable...

OK, So this is J.K Rowling's 2 Page StoryCard.

Then, te can post your's in the comments!!

The speeding motorcycle took the sharp corner so fast in the darkness that both policemen in the pursuing car shouted,"Whoa!"

Care for a Bat Bogey Hex? Anyone?
Greetings Fellows! I'm Isabellagirl033 and I've written this articolo to clear the confusion that many of te seem to make. I've seen and heard many people classifying Ginny Weasley as a Mary Sue character. Yikes!
Jk Rowling has made the character of Ginny Weasley a very complex one. She evolves from a shy, little girl to a fiery and outspoken redhead. The problem is that Ginny has so many positive characteristics that they overshadowed her flaws.

Ginny indeed has many flaws etc.
* In the Chamber of Secrets, Ron himself says that "Ginny never shuts up, normally" meaning that one of her flaws is...

I tossed and turned around in letto as I tried to fall asleep. It was the giorno before I left for Hogwarts for the new school year. I don’t know whether it was excitement o just that I had forgotten to pack something that kept me from falling asleep. I had packed all my robes, other clothes, libri and all other stuff the giorno before so that I wouldn’t have to participate in a scavenger hunt with Mum in the morning.
I sighed and turned over in letto again. The only fonte of light I had was the faint light of the crescent moon outside, meaning I couldn’t really see much.
I closed my eyes but sleep...

This is solely based on opinion.
They are my least preferito characters, especially from when i was Leggere the books.


1. Dolores Umbridge


If I am Scrivere any articoli on least preferito characters then definitely she will make number one. Because I there were times when i felt that she worse than Voldemort himself. She has an annoying crooked smile all the time, even she makes someone cry o suffer. She is like a cyborg with no feelings at all. She makes up all sort of false conclusions like Voldemort never returned and gave Harry a detention full of torture. And she doesn’t give a damn...

ok so I found this stupid person listing all the reasons why twilight is better than twilight. so I replied to every single one. and this is her picture:





1. Robert Pattinson, can te say HOT? And he's totally sexy when he sparkles!

So? Hotness has absolutely no correlation to recitazione ability. He was also in Harry Potter first.


2. Taylor Lautner, I mean, have te SEEN those muscles?

NOT HOT. Strange nose, closed up eyes and no recitazione ability. That is just my personal opinion. As I said, hotness has no correlation to recitazione ability.

3. Kristen Stewart. An extremely talented and beautiful actress, with...

The Harry Potter movie era is over, but the adventures of the amazing characters still live in our hearts. Still, several times people are kind of wacko and say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter. I'm going to give te a lista of reasons why this is not true, and prove once and for all, that Harry Potter really is the ultimate book/movie series.

1)J.K. Rowling doesnt change mythology- Vampiri#From Dracula to Buffy... and all creatures of the night in between. are Vampiri#From Dracula to Buffy... and all creatures of the night in between. and if they go in the sun, they die. On the other hand, Stephenie Meyer ruins mythology and lets her vampire character SPARKLE and not DIE in the sunlight
2) Harry Potter actually has...
