Reading Yesterday

Kate it still going on The Deathly Hallows and enjoying it. I finished re-reading The Philosophers Stone yesterday after deciding to start at the very beginning (as it's a very good place to start) to remind and relive the adventures. Whilst reading I was struck by JKR's forethought into this series. There are a number of facts and happenings that are not explained/mentioned/used until the last book. Things like: the information on the back of Dumbledore's Chocolate Frog Card (12 uses of Dragon's blood and the mention of his battle with Grindelward), the significance of the invisibility cloak, the intricacies of Gringotts and Snape's reaons for protecting Harry. Impressive. Most impressive. I was speaking to Adrian R. last night at church (he's another HP nut) and he heard that JKR wrote the last chapter of Deathly Hallows before she'd found a publisher for Philosophers Stone!
