It’s going to be weird when all this is over and my days don’t involve short snippets of Harry Potter.

Although not quite as weird as this mistranslation gem from Google:

You can rest in peace: There are more books in the series :grinning:

I know it’s difficult, but just obey your husband‘s orders and read them all :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’ve JUST understood the 4th floor thing. Of course the “3rd floor corridor” would be the 4th floor in any country that doesn’t have a “ground floor”. I’ve gone through the whole book not understanding this. I’m glad I figured it out in the last chapter!

Oh, right. Of course. That completely failed to occur to me, for some reason…

Well- I finally made it to the end - and feel completely prepared to enlist in any magical schools I find in Japan.

Kudos to @Marifly for organising!

I’m game for book two if/when the time comes.

Aye, I just finished too, woo! The second novel in Japanese that I’ve finished reading from cover to cover, and this one’s certainly much thicker than my first one.

My edition has a four-page essay at the end called “The World of Harry Potter” which I should probably read soon, but the story is done. :slightly_smiling_face:

Wooo! I finished today! I’ve owned this book for nearly 10 years without reading it. Thank you all for helping me achieve this - it’s been sitting on my shelf unread for so long… I don’t think I can continue to the next book but I’d love to do a re-read sometime.
