What's The Most Fascinating "Harry Potter" Moment From The Books?

The movies left out so many important moments.

Hello, Harry Potter fans of the internet. My name is Kayla, and I'm a muggle who's never read the books — I've just seen the movies.

And because I've only seen the flicks, I'm sure there's a TON of fascinating moments, cool characters, and interesting information I just don't know about.

So I'm putting my faith in you, dear reader, when I ask: What's the most fascinating Harry Potter moment from the books that didn't make it into the movies?

Maybe you thought it was cool when Hermione founded S.P.E.W. (the Society for the Promotion of Elfish Welfare), which fought for the equality of house-elves in the Wizarding World.

Or perhaps you found it interesting that Percy Weasley completely turned against his family and went over to the dark side to fight for Lord Voldemort.

I was shocked when my sister told me this. I need more details, folks!!!

Or maybe you thought it was pretty wild that Petunia actually wrote Dumbledore a letter when she was a kid because she so desperately wanted to go to Hogwarts.

This fact is BANANAS to me.

Whatever it is, we want to know! Tell us the most interesting moment from the Harry Potter books that *didn't* make it into the movies in the comments below.
