How Well Do You Know the Harry Potter Books?

Warner Bros.

They say knowledge is power, which is true. Knowledge is what separates man from beast. Or maybe that’s rational thought and thumbs. Regardless, knowledge is also what separates the Harry Potter trivia novices from the demigods who can name all of Ron Weasley's uncles in alphabetical order. Every day of my life, I strive to be that demigod. Nothing strikes a blow to my identity—my very sense of self—more than when I can't remember obscure names and dates from a fictional world of wizards.

I'm betting you feel the same way. You clicked on this, didn't you? Let's go ahead and see how well you know the books. Just remember: if you do poorly, you'll be forced into fandom exile, but no pressure.
