Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone by J.K. RowlingHarry Potters life is miserable. His parents are dead and hes stuck with his heartless relatives, who force him to live in a tiny closet under the stairs. But his fortune changes when he receives a letter that tells him the truth about himself: hes a wizard. A mysterious visitor rescues him from his relatives and takes him to his new home, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
After a lifetime of bottling up his magical powers, Harry finally feels like a normal kid. But even within the Wizarding community, he is special. He is the boy who lived: the only person to have ever survived a killing curse inflicted by the evil Lord Voldemort, who launched a brutal takeover of the Wizarding world, only to vanish after failing to kill Harry.
Though Harrys first year at Hogwarts is the best of his life, not everything is perfect. There is a dangerous secret object hidden within the castle walls, and Harry believes its his responsibility to prevent it from falling into evil hands. But doing so will bring him into contact with forces more terrifying than he ever could have imagined.
Full of sympathetic characters, wildly imaginative situations, and countless exciting details, the first installment in the series assembles an unforgettable magical world and sets the stage for many high-stakes adventures to come.

Harry Potter fans rejoice! Rowling is taking us back to the Wizarding World. Rowling's Pottermore publishing has announced that four new books are coming, but they might not be quite what you think - or had hoped for. Instead of fully-fledged next entries into the series, the new books will only be available digitally, and are based on the 'History of Magic' audio book, which was narrated by Game of Thrones' Natalie Dormer last year. The eBook shorts are "a chance to absorb the colourful characters and curious incidents of the real history of magic in a more compact form," say Pottermore , "perfect for the train or whatever Muggle transport you prefer. The new books are each themed around a different Hogwarts lesson, but they won't be a continuation of the story set up in the original seven books.
