Similar to Friday 56, Turn to Page 394 requires turning to page 394 and sharing a sentence, passage or whatever strikes your fancy on that particular page. For my first Turn to Page 394, I find it most fitting to start with Harry Potter. Disappointingly, The Prisoner of Azkaban does not have 394 pages, thus I will share a passage from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
He wasn’t entirely sure why he was refusing Bagman’s help, except that Bagman was almost a stranger to him, and accepting his assistance would feel somehow much more like cheating than asking advice from Ron, Hermione, or Sirius.
Bagman looked almost affronted, but couldn’t say much more as Fred and George turned up at that point.
I was never a fan of Ludo Bagman. He got in the way of the Tri-Wizard tournament and took up too much time. Like Tom Bumbadil in Lord of the Rings he was not missed in the film adaptation. However, his interactions with the Weasley Twins were highly amusing and did add a little light-hearted entertainment to an otherwise dark novel.Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4)
Author J.K. Rowling
Series: Harry Potter #4
Publication Date September 28th 2002
Harry Potter is midway through both his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened for hundreds of years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. But unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal - even by wizarding standards.And in his case, different can be deadly.
