Harry Potter series - Books 1 & 2

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - J K Rowling
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J K Rowling

I've started to reread the Harry Potter series because I know that I can read them in a day, if I had the chance. The first 3 books I'm reading for the third time, for the later ones for the second. It's interesting to read them over again after having finished the series as I find myself going oh! as I make connections between what happened in earlier books and what will happen in the later ones.

Although, this time after reading the first book, I found myself wanting to know more about Professor Snape. We do get bits and pieces of his story throughout the series, and the Half-blood Prince is more his story, but it
would be interesting to have a whole book from his perspective. In this reading at least, he is my favourite character. His is complex as we are never quite sure which line he has taken.
I managed to read the first two when I went to Casino for the long weekend. I wished I had taken Prisoner of Azkaban as well. It will now have to wait until book club on Friday.
