Say you've spent the first 10 years of your life sleeping under the stairs of a family who loathes you. Then, in an absurd, magical twist of fate you find yourself surrounded by wizards, a caged snowy owl, a phoenix-feather wand, and jellybeans that come in every flavor, including strawberry, curry, grass, and sardine. Not only that, but you discover that you are a wizard yourself! This is exactly what happens to young Harry Potter in J.K. Rowling's enchanting, funny debut novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. In the nonmagic human world--the world of "Muggles"--Harry is a nobody, treated like dirt by the aunt and uncle who begrudgingly inherited him when his parents were killed by the evil Voldemort. But in the world of wizards, small, skinny Harry is famous as a survivor of the wizard who tried to kill him. He is left only with a lightning-bolt scar on his forehead, curiously refined sensibilities, and a host of mysterious powers to remind him that he's quite, yes, altogether different from his aunt, uncle, and spoiled, piglike cousin Dudley. A mysterious letter, delivered by the friendly giant Hagrid, wrenches Harry from his dreary, Muggle-ridden existence: "We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry." Of course, Uncle Vernon yells most unpleasantly, "I AM NOT PAYING FOR SOME CRACKPOT OLD FOOL TO TEACH HIM MAGIC TRICKS!" Soon enough, however, Harry finds himself at Hogwarts with his owl Hedwig... and that's where the real adventure--humorous, haunting, and suspenseful--begins.
This is it! The highly anticipated (and dreaded) final book of the Harry Potter series. What will happen to Harry? Will he survive against Voldemort? This is the book that holds the answers to these and many other questions raised throughout the seven book series....
Here is a handful of Harry Potter Fan sites which all the Harry Potter fans would enjoy for sure!!
DarkMark.com-See it once and never forget it!
DarkMark.com, launched on October 19th 2001, has dramatically changed the scene of Harry Potter websites since its launch. It was formed by a merge of two relatively small sites, Harry Potter Fun and Harry Potter Unlimited. The sites joined coding skills and content resources to create the ultimate Potter site.
Veritaserum: Let the truth be told!
Veritaserum in terms of Harry Potter is the name of a truth potion. A few drops and everything is out! This site, as you should have known, is also a fan site dealing more with pictures, videos and stuff along with trivia and the latest news. Also are links in this site to many other of its kind.
The Leaky Cauldron
"We're compiling all the remaining mysteries of Harry Potter- What's left to tie up,what's left to discover, what's left for Jo Rowling to pack into this final book"
The Leaky Cauldron, is an all-purpose site for the Harry Potter enthusiast. It
started in 2000 as a badly designed one-page roll of news; it has now turned into a
destination for fan entertainment and discussion, and has become the Harry Potter
site of record, hosting the oldest and most comprehensive Potter news archive on
Leaky's interview archive is one of the things of which it is most proud. Besides Jo
Rowling, it has interviewed people associated with every corner of the Harry
Potter franchise and fandom: The producers and directors of the first four films; the
executives at Scholastic; the company that produces the books in America; many
actors from the film from the main trio of actors (Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson,
Rupert Grint) straight down the line to extras and fans.

HPANA-Harry Potter Automatic News Aggregator
The Harry Potter Automatic News Aggregator, or HPANA as it is better known, is a Harry Potter fansite created in 2002 to monitor news on the Internet about J. K. Rowling's series of novels about the eponymous wizard. It was one of the first such sites to aggressively promote the use of RSS, a technology that automatically notifies readers of updates and allows content to be distributed and accessed in a variety of ways.
HPANA is operated by a volunteer staff of adults and teenagers who monitor and post news items, attend events in order to cover them for the site, and moderate the forums. It is donation and advertiser supported and runs on three physical servers in a Michigan datacenter.
Every site here waits for a member...
