Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction.

And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Re: Mistakes in HP1

What to you mean by "mistakes"?

 

Are we talking simple printing errors and other errata?

 

Infidelity with "real world" facts?

 

Or descriptions/statements/occurrences that are later ignored or contradicted by other parts of in-series continuity?

Re: Mistakes in HP1

This is not in Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone.

 

In Book5, when Hagrid has the dragon steak over his eye, Harry describes a drop of green blood on the steak.  Then, in Book 6,  Professor what-his-name (not Dumbledore, Proffesor Slughorn)  says the blood on his walls is dragon's blood, even though JK described the blood on the walls as red.

 

There are some others, but I can't think of them right now.
