Starting over with Harry Potter

"The more people join, the better. There is a certain amount of tedium in identifying words, looking them up, and so on, and if we share that out we can get more return on our efforts.

I have text and audio, and I have just parsed the first four chapters into sentences. There are about 1500 of them, and I’ve also extracted the unique kanji. The kanji counts are as follows…

Chapter 1 – 569 kanji
Chapter 1 and 2 – 739 kanji
Chapters 1 to 3 – 893 kanji
Chapters 1 to 4 – 991 kanji

Some of those kanji are not in the joyo kanji, but the vast majority are."

Hope it's ok to add

I've been using this site recently for reading:

http://hukumusume.com/douwa/index.html

It's a collection of folktales, fairy tales, and legends.

I find the level to be a little above NHK Easy Japanese. Hopefully by focusing on stories from Japan, rather than the sections with stories from a round the world, it gives more context into Japanese culture as well.
