Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 80 Days

There are now only 80 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters!  We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is today's quote!

"Once I'm seventeen, the protective charm that keeps me safe will break, and that exposes you as well as me. The Order is sure Voldemort will target you, whether to torture you to try and find out where I am, or because he thinks by holding you hostage I'd come and try to rescue you."

Ah Harry, so noble. Never wants to put anyone else in danger.

Dursleys were horrible, but they’d still followed Dumbledore’s letter and kept Harry. They could have just thrown him out to the orphanage despite all those wizardy things.

Well, he would have rescued them…maybe not in a heartbeat, but after they’d gotten a little taste of what life in Voldy’s crosshairs must’ve been like for their ward. And maybe even the Dursleys would’ve gotten a bit of character-building out of that experience! At least Dudley was beginning to show the tiniest glimmer of a capacity for compassion.

Yes,this shows the nobility of Harry.Best chapter to describe Dudley’s feeling and Harry’s anger at their stupidity.I think i love Harry for his feeling for them.

This was one of my favorite parts, when Dudley, in his own ways told Harry that he loved him and that he was going to miss him… and that he was really part of the family, Dudley’s life wouldn’t be the same without Harry in it:)

This was a great part of DH. Mr. Dursley accusing Harry of wanting to take his house.

@Jeannine When there are only hours left in the countdown, they will be posting the final quote… they have it timed out right.

Guess That Book

A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, eleven o'clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the barrier had been, with the words [i]Platform Nine and Three-Q
