Caught my fancy: Magical Me autobiography by Gilderoy Lockhart

My pick takes you to Diagon Alley again. This time to the bookstore, Flourish and Blotts.

Flourish and Blotts Bookseller is a bookstore in Diagon Alley where most Hogwarts students purchase their schoolbooks. The store has had a few problems with certain books, such as The Invisible Book of Invisibility which cost them a great deal of money though they never found them, and The Monster Book of Monsters which tore each other up as well as biting the manager when he tried to get one out. -per Harry Potter Wiki

Magical Me
by Gilderoy Lockhart

...when Lockhart was a teacher of Defence Against the Dark Arts in Hogwarts school, he offered a signed copy of this book to the student who composed the best poem about his defeat of the Wagga Wagga Werewolf (as a homework assignment). -per Harry Potter Wiki

If this were for sale, I'd buy it. Gilderoy was portrayed as such a hilarious character in the movie!

I would love to read the accounts of the adventures he appropriated. I'm sure they would be filled with elaborate and outrageous descriptions.

What caught your fancy in this first film?

Don't forget: your comment counts towards the CSN grabaway.
