Actually, they locked me in my room if I dared talk about magical things.I learned more about my role in Quidditch, seeker, and about the other roles in the game; Keeper, Beaters and Chasers. The chapter about the special Quidditch moves and the part about the "Wronski Feint" were especially interesting because I saw it done, live, last summer vacation at the Quidditch World Cup. I enjoyed reading about the different kinds of racing brooms because I love my Firebolt, which is the best racing broom that exists today, and I care about it.My friend Ron was especially interested in the chapter about the different Quidditch teams today. He likes the "Chudley Cannons". Ron wanted to write some notes about them in the book, but our friend Hermione stopped him at the last second. She warned him that the book might be protected with an anti-sabotage spell, because the copy they read belonged to Hogwarts' library.Where did you read and learn about Quidditch? I would like to read more about the subject.Hope to hear from you soon,Harry Potter
