Five Books Hermione Granger Will Never Read1) Sonnets of a Sorceror
It was possible, of course, that Ron had been exaggerating what his father told him about banned books the ministry had confiscated. And even, in this case, rather likely-- why should a book about *sonnets* cause one to speak in *limericks*? And surely there was a counter-curse-- the author must have have had some way of keeping him or herself from becoming affected as it was being written.
Still. Not being able to choose her words as she wished-- or even cast spells properly, for learning to fit them into limerick structure would be quite the chore-- would be a nightmare. Hermione might be a Gryffindor, but she isn't *that* foolish.2) The Invisible Book of Invisibility
She actually *would* like to read a book about invisibility-- but even if one could find a copy in the first place, how would one distinguish the invisible text from the invisible paper it was written on?
Secretly, Hermione suspects that the stories about this book are really just the Wizarding World's version of "The Emperor With No Clothes".3) The Dream Oracle
As *if* Hermione would ever consult a text that Professor Trelawney had recommended for her class!4) The Handbook of Do-it-Yourself Broom Care
This is one gift-book she actually *didn't* crack open before wrapping it up to send to Harry. So she may be a little more knowledgeable about Quidditch than she used to be; that doesn't mean she needs to know the ins and outs of polishing a broom. (Er, at least, not yet).
and... 5) Anything with "Choose Your Own Adventure" in the title
*Honestly*. It isn't as if she doesn't have enough adventure in her life already, and books are to meant to be educational, or at the very least entertaining. They should not be a means of self-gratification. (Not even if you *are* a famous Defense Against the Dark Arts professor).
