Day 39 / 101 - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

It's been awhile since I've posted a Harry Potter update, but I'm pleased to say we've finished the Goblet of Fire.  It took us awhile, first because this book clocks in at 734 pages, more than twice as long as any of the first three.  Second, we were distracted from our reading for a bit due to a minor mousetrap.  However, once the Triwizard Tournament began, we were unable to put the book down.

I am appreciating even more Professor Dumbledore, as he shows up only about once every hundred pages in order to impart some wisdom to Harry.  This wisdom, I find, so applicable to our lives today.

Really, Hagrid, if you are are holding out for universal popularity, I'm afraid you will be in this cabin for a very long time....

You fail to recognize that it matters  not what someone is born, but what they grow to be!

"I will settle, in the short term," said Dumbledore, with a bite of impatience in his voice, "for a lack of open hostility.  You will shake hands.  You are on the same side now.  Time is short, and unless the few of us who know the truth stand united, there is no hope for any of us."
