Thoughts (Jan 2010)
Re-reading this to re-familiarize myself with Harry's first year (mainly for fanfic purposes).
It's interesting the amount of fanon which has crept in to my concsiousness unnoticed until I discovered that canon contradicted it (such as where Mrs Figg actually lived). Another thing that is giving me a pleasant surprise is that some of the descriptions are rather good and vivid. I'd been comparing this unfavourably to Diana Wynne Jones's work when I read it for the first time, I wasn't really noticing its merits.
