Half-Blood Prince Trivia

Recommended Posts

Hello to new and welcome back to old! This school year we are reading through Book 6: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince! Each weekday (may vary depending on a variety of reasons) I will be posting a new trivia question, and you'll have 24 hours to get me the answer for 2 scales! At the end of the 24 hours, I'll post the answer to the previous day's question. :) If you answer all 5 questions each week that's 10 scales a week! (More about scales here)

It's important for you to know: these answers are all based on the BOOK, not the movie, and the questions will be from the chapter we are reading that week; so pay attention! If you skip ahead to another chapter or only watch the movie, you might have the wrong answer!

Question #1: Which Junior Minister was going to be spending a lot more time with his family?

PM me the answer with the subject: HBP #1 by 1:15am September 3 HOL Time to earn 2 scales!
