Notable Quotable: Fredrik Backman (#155)

"The currency there is imagination; instead of buying something with coins, you buy it with a good story. Libraries aren't know as libraries but as 'banks,' and every fairy tale is worth a fortune."

Harry Potter Moment of the Week #100

hosted by Uncorked Thoughts and Lunar Rainbows Reviews.

Favorite Fred and George Moment

There are so many great moments for the Weasley twins. I especially love how well they treat Harry, just like a brother.

The moment when Harry gives them the winnings for the Triwizard Tournament. The guys are so floored that multiple times they try and give it back and make Harry change his mind. They can't believe that someone would ever do that for them. They were trying to figure out how to open their joke shop and with the winnings they were able to. I love them for being humble enough to take it (after some major convincing) and they did well with it.

I think my absolutely favorite Fred and George moment has to be when the make their grand exit in Order of the Phoenix. They have style, they have class, they have fireworks and floating swamps! When they realize they have nothing left at Hogwarts to keep them there after being banned from quidditch, they take to the sky. It was an epic, hilarious, and beautifully defiant way to leave. It was their big f-you to Umbridge and I love it. I grin ear to ear and laugh every time I read it!
