back to Hogwarts

“‘Yer ticket fer Hogwarts,’ he said. ‘First o’ September – King’s Cross – it’s all on yer ticket.’”

Are you even a book blogger if you don’t post about (said in best British accent) Mr. Potter? Happy September first!

#BackToHogwarts. As Harry Potter fans know all too well, on the first of September, Hogwarts Express leaves King’s Cross Station at 11 a.m., bringing students to Hogsmeade Station where Harry attended Hogwarts for the very first time. And we’ve all been celebrating this eponymous wizarding world date ever since.

“You’re a little scary sometimes, you know that? Brilliant … but scary.”

“You can laugh, but people used to believe there were no such things as the Blibbering Humdinger or the Crumple-Horned Snorkack!”

“He can run faster than Severus Snape confronted with shampoo.” — Fred Weasley
