"Okay so I have heard NOTHING about the Dursleys being in DH1...are they even gonna be in there? Like I would've thought that they'd have been shown briefly in a TV spot or something....but nada...I'm a little worried lol"
I am one of the world's biggest book worms, and my favorite genres are mystery, suspense, olden day romance, and fantasy. My biggest favorites in books are Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, the Harry Potter series (of course), and the Anne of Green Gables series. I also absolutely love the mystery/suspense novels written by Mary Higgins Clark, Queen of Suspense, and her daughter Carol Higgins Clark.
For me, Harry Potter is something special, something I go to whenever I feel sad or lonely. The books awaken a sense of morality in me, to do right and help society. Harry Potter is not just any ordinary series. It's magical, not only in its true sense, but really, it's simply wonderful, and I can never thank Mrs. Rowling enough for creating such a beloved world. I will always love Harry Potter, and in my heart, the wizarding world is as real to me as this world is.

My favorite quotes
Harry to Ginny:
"I didn't want anyone to talk to me," said Harry, who was feeling more and more nettled.
"Well, that was a bit stupid of you," said Ginny angrily, "seeing as you don't know anyone but me who's been possessed by You-Know-Who, and I can tell you how it feels."
Harry remained quite still as the impact of these words hit him. Then he wheeled around.
"I forgot," he said.
"Lucky you," said Ginny coolly.
"It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities." ~Albus Dumbledore
"Fear of a name increases fear of a thing itself." ~Albus Dumbledore
"Your mother died to save you. If there is one thing Voldemort cannot understand, it is love." ~Albus Dumbledore
"I will only truly have left this school when none here are loyal to me... Help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it."
"To the well organized mind, death is but the next great adventure."
"...in the light of Voldemort's return, we are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. Lord Voldemort's gift for spreading discord and enmity is very great. We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust. Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open." ~Albus Dumbledore
“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love. By returning, you may ensure that fewer souls are maimed, fewer families are torn apart. If that seems to you a worthy goal, then we say good-bye for the present.” ~Albus Dumbledore
“That which Voldemort does not value, he takes no trouble to comprehend. Of house-elves and children’s tales, of love, loyalty, and innocence, Voldemort knows and understands nothing. Nothing. That they all have a power beyond his own, a power beyond the reach of any magic, is a truth he has never grasped.” ~Albus Dumbledore
"There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends."
"It is important to fight, and fight again, and keep fighting, for only then can evil be kept at bay, though never quite eradicated." ~Albus Dumbledore
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife." ~Pride and Prejudice, Chapter One
"Laugh as much as you choose, but you will not laugh me out of my opinion." ~Pride and Prejudice, Chapter 17
"I'm not a bit changed--not really. I'm only just pruned down and branched out. The real ME--back here--is just the same." ~Anne Shirley
"True friends are together in spirit." ~Anne Shirley

Harry Potter events I've attended (fan conventions, live podcasts, Wizard Rock concerts, etc)
Unfortunately, None; Though a tremendous fan of Harry Potter, I haven't attended any events, but I dearly hope to in the future.
Aww.... Thanks!!!! I feel special!!!!! And thanks about the wand compliment!!! XD Do you mean just MY wand,or the ones in my text box? Cuz if your talking about the ones in my text box,then a girl named Karlee,made the one on the top,and the one in the middle,is made by Minn.But Minn doesn't make wands,pets,or broomsticks anymore. :( But she still makes banners and profile pictures though!!!!:) I love her profile pictures!!!!! And banners too but,I only use the profile pictures.
Wuthering Heights is a little boring in the beginning, but you have to stick with it. It is amazing! Def in my top ten. It is very dark and Emily Bronte (male pen name Ellis Bell) originally recieved critiscm for it being too gruesome. It is rather sad, but it is worth it. Did you get to the scene with the fingers and the window? Because that's where it gets interesting. I actually like Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte more. This is where the term "plain Jane" comes from. It is the ultimate love/story of a real woman that you will find. It was extremely ahead of its time. I will have to finish Emma (cringe) but I will if you say it gets better!
Thanks 4 the add! Yep, I have read all of them! They are so marvelous! After that. O moved on to Jane Austen. I've read Pride and Prejudice and Mansfield Park, but I couldn't make it through Emma. Her character was just so annoying, I wanted to throw the book at the wall! lol! Have you read any of the Bronte sisters?
