That's the beauty of dark magic! Be a death eater and I'll show you things you've never seen before! ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ester_AB

A death eater? I think I will pass that, thank you! You are very creepy, you know that don't you?
I suppose you have read all the books right? What's you favorite?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_DarkLord_

You mean those? http://imgur.com/a/3Ulwu Yep, I've read them all, some more than once. Sometimes I just wish I had the power to erase my memory so I could read them again and again.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ester_AB

Uau You have them in English? Plese tell me, where can I get them in English?

Btw, if you struggle to read Harry Potter, try reading with the audio-books by Stephen Fry (you're going to kill two birds with one stone!). If you ask me, I think Stephen Fry’s is a classic in the audio book world. He is perfection on every level in my opinion. All the characters on the book are superbly brought to life with real personality and depth that carries impeccably throughout the entire series. I personally think Fry’s has an incredible ability with accents, speech, inflection and tone. I have listened to these books many times and still find so much joy listening to his narration!

Here you can find the links to download the audio-books: https://goo.gl/lChVu1

This is going to be http://v.ht/So_Much_Fun!!!

I'm reading the Alice's Adventures in Wonderland book. I chose it because I thought a children's book would be more easy to my understanding, but even so I'm having too difficult. It have many phrasal verbs and idiomatic expressions.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VitorSRamos

I like Harry Potter. It's my favourite series!!!! I think cool magic.

I'm waiting for my Hogwarts letter ... I'm 10 years, I've hope!

Please, correct me if I'm wrong. I still don't finished the Duolingo's English Course.

Bye:D

Good afternoon! My name is Jflor and I liked so much your topic, because it encourages we to read and write in the same time.

My favorite book is "how I was before you". This book did me think about my life and the things that I do, the way whose I follow and showed me new things that I can and I have to do.

Please, If I wrote something wrong, correct me.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Edianara

I'm glad you liked the topic and do not be afraid to write wrong, I studied a lot and still write a lot wrong, but it's missing you learn. I didn't find any errors in your writing :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EridanGalvao

Have you ever it read in English or Portuguese?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/J_Flor

I have read it in Portuguese. And you, have you ever read it?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/arobuenos

Hi, Harry Potter is very good, but my favorite books are by Edgar Alan Poe.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EridanGalvao

Wow, I'm crazy for these books, but unfortunately I have never found it in English.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WarriorCleberz

The Series 'Immortal", Nora Roberts, where she writes with a codename J.D. Robb. The history is a sci-fi mixed with police romance. For me Nora Roberts is one of the most creative writer in the world actually, her books are between the best-sellers well sold worldwide.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/douglasoli411433

Sophie's World, best book ever!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Edianara

Yes, I like very this book too.

Hi! My favorite book is The Second Sex by Simone De Beauvior and I think Harry Potter's very good! Nice to meet you all. xx

"The realities of the world affected me as visions, and as visions only, while the wild ideas of the land of dreams became, in turn – not the material of my every-day existence – but in very deed that existence utterly and solely in itself.

Berenice and I were cousins, and we grew up together in my paternal halls. Yet differently we grew – I ill of health, and buried in gloom – she agile, graceful, and overflowing with energy; hers the ramble on the hill-side – mine the studies of the cloister – I living within my own heart, and addicted body and soul to the most intense and painful meditation – she roaming carelessly through life with no thought of the shadows in her path, or the silent flight of the raven-winged hours."

Poe, always.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/EridanGalvao

Wow! I'm his fan too.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LeonardoDiniz0

So many peoples say "I love Harry Potter" hehehehehe and, I LOVE HARRY POTTER TOO! Harry Potter is my life <3 Thanks J.K.Howling.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/regis_adriano

Hello y'all o/ Well, it's obvious that Harry Potter is te favorite book of a lot of people, including me. Maybe that's because it was my first book and I grew up reading it.

But as the time goes by we discover other authors and genres and fall in love with them as well. As some of my favorite books are the Hunger Games Trilogy, His Dark Material (Nothern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass). Surely those two trilogies got me in the heart and I love them.

Has anybody here read any bookof His Dark Materials? I know the movie was quite awful, but ok... the book is awesome.

P.S. His Dark Materials is translated as "Fronteiras do Universo" and its first movie was cast as The Golden Compass (A Bússola de Ouro).

    Nice topic!, my favorite book is "Death with Interruptions", original name is "As intermitências da Morte" of José Saramago. In this book he tries to answer a 'simple question'. What would happen if people stopped dying?
