Of course, it was the subject that appealed least to him, but that was exactly why he was searching for those particular books. No subject deserved dishonour, in his eyes.
"No... not this one. Transfiguration? Not bad, but no.." He said, continuously searching.
Maybe the fact that he was a first year with limited knowledge of directing acted as a disadvantage for him, but he didn't care. He kept going, and sure enough found what he was lookin- a Charms book? It appeared that he wasn't done just yet.
And again, though with more success this time.
He grabbed his History of Magic book and eagerly, or as eager as you could be for a subject you despised, flipped through the pages. Not his best read, but it seemed plausible to rid of his dislikes for the subject. However, he wasn't ready to leave the library just yet.
Now, it was time to look around the rest of the shelves. What was he going to find on the day? Only time could tell apparently.
