Harry Potter Virtual Book Club Assignment #8: The LAST Task

This is it, Potterheads. The LAST chunk of The Sorcerer’s Stone and the LAST assignment. There are only the last three chapters for you to read, and they’re so exciting, I won’t be surprised if you finish them in one sitting. Since I’m posting this a bit late, let’s make sure you’ve finished the book by August 17th.

In this post, I shared one of my favorite quotes from this book: “It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” Not only do I love the alliteration, but I also love the message. Whenever I’m reading a book that moves me, I always record meaningful quotes. This is what real readers do! When we find a book we love, we revisit it again and again trying to reveal significant or even new moments. I ❤ reading.

For your LAST assignment I want you to find a quote that means something to you from The Sorcerer’s Stone. The quote doesn’t have to be from the final three chapters (although there are some gems there); it can be from anywhere in the whole novel. Don’t forget to note WHO says the quote: it might be a character or J.K. Rowling. Once you’ve found your quote, send me the following info in an email, blog post comment, a note dropped off at HBB or MKG’s office to be put in my mailbox, a snail mail via the HBB or MKG’s office, whatever:

  • the whole quote
  • who said it
  • your name
  • your new teacher for the the 2015-2016 school year

If you send me all of this info before August 17th, I’ll have a special delivery for you in the first week of school. It may or may not involve an owl. 🙂

Happy final reading, Potterheads!

    P.S. Thank you for creating this wonderful book club. I had a great time! In fact, I’m kind of sad that it’s over.😩

  2. ‘”Ah! Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans! I was unfortunate enough in my youth to come across a vomit-flavored one, and since then I’m afraid I’ve rather lost my liking for them — but I think I’ll be safe with a nice toffee, don’t you?”
    He smiled and popped the golden-brown bean into his mouth. Then he choked and said, “Alas, Ear wax!”‘

    -Albus Dumbledore

    I have Mrs. LeBlanc this year!

  8. My favorite quote would be, ‘I haven’t eaten for nearly four hundred years,’ said the ghost. ‘I don’t need to, of course, but one does miss it. I don’t think I’ve introduced myself?’ Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington at your service. Resident ghost ot Gryffindor Tower.’ Can’t imagine not tasting chocolate but seeing it .
