The Harry Potter Reread has passed through what Americans call a “sophomore year,” which is a useless word, in that it is designed to make it seem as though something was accomplished instead of just saying oh, good work on that second year. Seriously, it means nothing, but it sounds terribly important. (Also, it’s Harry and Rowling’s birthday today, so… cake? Do we have a cake? We should get some cake.)
Which does not detract from the fact that we’ve reached the end of the second book! I knew the first two went by faster than the rest, but this has been a total blur. I’m just sort of stunned and wobbly. Like a newly-freed house-elf? We’ve got two chapters left of The Chamber of Secrets—The Heir of Slytherin and Dobby’s Reward.
Index to the reread can be located here! Other Harry Potter and Potter-related pieces can be found under their appropriate tag. And of course, since we know this is a reread, all posts might contain spoilers for the entire series. If you haven’t read all the Potter books, be warned.
