The best books to reread are the Harry Potter books because then you can see all the crazy foreshadowing you missed when reading them the first time. Like in Chamber of Secrets: "holy shit, Harry feels close to the diary because they're both Horcruxs, how did I miss that?", amirite?

In Order of Phoenix I remember a brief moment where Harry was cleaning and came upon the locket which would be so important in Deathly Hallows, and in Half-Blood Prince when he passed the bust with the diadem on it while trying to find a hiding place for the diary. It gives me a headache thinking of how long it took J.K. Rowling to plan all these things out.

Yeah, I loved that. I remember going back to the 6th book and looking for the specific reference to the diadem after reading the 7th.

Also, I really enjoyed how Harry destroyed the diary. Like, we didn't even care about things like horcruxes or saving the world at that point, it was just like "wow, some crazy shit is going down at Hogwarts." But then he reaches over, grabs a basilisk tusk, and destroys the fucking horcrux! Then we learn that it's maybe 1 of 4 ways to destroy one, and I was just like FUCK HOW COMPLETELY PERFECT IS THAT, HE CONVENIENTLY WAS NEXT TO ONE OF ONLY A FEW WAYS TO KILL VOLDEMORT!

I'm not trying to belittle the book in any way, I love it, but Harry was pretty goddamn lucky.

Also, it always bothered me that Tom chose to hide the diadem in the Room of Requirement. Did he really think that it was such a good spot and that he was the only person who could find it? Like the room was only meant for him? He's a pretty smart wizard, I don't think we would have made a dumb assumption like that.

And now I'm done with my rant. (whoops, forgot to go anon for a sec there)

You have to remember that he didn't imagine anyone would ever find out he made Horcruxes, and that if they did, they would never imagine he made more than one.

Also, no one specifically knew they were looking for a diadem, and there's billions of items in the Room of Requirement - all things considered, it would have seemed like a safe place.

(Simon) Then your explanation is much more effective than Harry's. I brought out the 'ole Deathly Hallows to quote some of his reasoning about why Riddle hid it in the Room of Requirement.

"He knew, at last, where the Horcrux sat waiting for him...
Tom Riddle, who confided in no one and operated alone, might have been arrogant enough to assume that he, and only he, had penetrated the deepest mysteries of Hogwarts Castle..." (620)

"'And he never realized anyone could get in?' said Ron, his voice echoing in the silence.
'He thought he was the only one,' said Harry. 'Too bad for him I've had to hide stuff in my time...'" (627)

But, yeah, I guess Voldemort's own ego played a part - the fact that he thought his intelligence superior to anyone else's caused him to underestimate everyone.

I'm rereading them all and so far my favorite scene to reread came at the end of GoF. I've discussed this with someone else, but having already read the entire series, it was just so emotionally heavy to go back and read the moment when it all went to hell. The moment Fudge could have stepped up and headed Tom off before anything too horrible happened, but stood and did nothing. The line that gets me the most from that scene is, "We may still be able to save the situation" Fred, Dobby, Lupin, Tonks, Moody, Colin, Dumbledore, Emmeline Vance, Snape and so many more all could have lived had Fudge done what needed to be done right then and there. It's just really amazing looking back on it like that and it makes me a bit angry that they left such an incredibly crucial point of the war out of the film. This wasn't a pointless scene of Harry in charm's class, it was the moment that forever changed the Harry Potter world.

One of the things that really annoyed me was, I know people have complained about the Epilogue before, but it basically said nothing - it told you who ended up with whom (which you already knew - Harry with Ginny and Hermione with Ron) and their kids names, but it didn't tell you how they cleaned up after the war. What happened to wizard society after something so huge? What about all the dead people - I assume they were given proper funerals, but how did it effect everyone? Did Harry, Ron and Hermione go back and finish Year 7? I just felt the crappy Epilogue told me nothing.

In HBP after Ron gets poisoned, Hagrid and Harry are talking in the corridor. Hagrid says he heard Snape and Dumbledore arguing by the lake, that Snape said something about not wanting to do it anymore. That was one of the memories in the DH chapter "A Prince's Tale."

I was recently reading Goblet of Fire and I noticed that Voldemort was telling Wormtail he had a job for him that "most people would give their right hand for"!

On page 167 of the US edition:

"Well, there's one good thing," he said savagely. "Snape'll be gone by the end of the year."
"What do you mean?" asked Ron.
"That job's jinxed. No one's lasted more than a year .... Quirrell actually died doing it.... Personally, I'm going to keep my fingers crossed for another death...."

As it turns out, it was a death that got Snape out of the job for next year (presumably, anyway)

That was me about eight months ago. I hated those books with all of my life (something I'm embarassed to say now) because of all of the unruly fans and crazy press. I was content choosing my own books and not being persuaded by everyone else. But one of my friends came along and was like "Dude. Just give it a chance." So I borrowed the first one from my other friend. The first line had me hooked. I honestly don't have a word in my vocabulary to describe the series, and I'm not exagarrating. Just give them a chance, you won't regret it. Trust me, I know, because less than a year ago i was in your shoes.

I was completely aware that was the first line in the series and I think it's great. It's the author's job to hook the reader in right away, and J.K.

I admit, I've made attempts to read it again so that I could join the crowd (I even made it to book 5 once) but then, eventually, I realized that it was a huge waste of time. The books aren't even that amazing. What really pisses me off is that everywhere I look, people are still talking about Harry Potter like they just read it yesterday for the first time.

Also, I don't believe that enjoying a story is a waste of time. I think that it's the little enjoyments that make day-to-day life worth smiling about. It may be a waste of time for you to read a story, but it isn't for other people. So you can bash all the opinions you want, but you're still not right. Nobody is.
