  10. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 18 (Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs) - "The rest of the final term passed in a haze of blazing sunshine. Hogwarts was back to normal with only a few, small differences — Defence Against the Dark Arts classes were cancelled (“but we’ve had plenty of practise at that anyway,” Ron told a disgruntled Hermione) and Lucius Malfoy had been sacked as a school governor."
  11. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 18 (Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs) - "I can’t stand another two months with only Dudley to talk to. ...”"
  12. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 1 (Owl Post) - "Harry was particularly keen to avoid trouble with his aunt and uncle at the moment, as they were already in an especially bad mood with him, all because he’d received a telephone call from a fellow wizard one week into the school vacation."
  13. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 1 (Owl Post) - So Harry had had no word from any of his wizarding friends for five long weeks, and this summer was turning out to be almost as bad as the last one." Noted on 30 July 1993

  16. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 1 (Owl Post) - "I bought your present by owl-order; there was an advertisement in the Daily Prophet (I’ve been getting it delivered; it’s so good to keep up with what’s going on in the wizarding world). Did you see that picture of Ron and his family a week ago?
  17. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 1 (Owl Post) - "It was nearly midnight, and he was lying on his stomach in bed, the blankets drawn right over his head like a tent, a flashlight in one hand and a large leather-bound book (A History of Magic by Bathilda Bagshot) propped open against the pillow."

  20. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 2 (Aunt Marge's Big Mistake) - "Uncle Vernon drained his teacup, glanced at his watch, and added, “I’d better be off in a minute, Petunia. Marge’s train gets in at ten.” [...] “Marge’ll be here for a week,” Uncle Vernon snarled..."
  21. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 2 (Aunt Marge's Big Mistake) - "“You mustn’t blame yourself for the way the boy’s turned out, Vernon,” she said over lunch on the third day.

  22. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 2 (Aunt Marge's Big Mistake) - Following the third day (2 August), "Harry got through the next three days by forcing himself to think about his Handbook of Do-It-Yourself Broomcare whenever Aunt Marge started on him. [...] At last, at long last, the final evening of Marge’s stay arrived." This could be the evening of the sixth day, with Marge's last day of her week-long stay the following day, or the evening of her last day of visiting. As there were several bottles of wine and Brandy being consumed, it appears unlikely she was leaving later that evening so more likely 5 August if Marge's stay is exactly 7 days (31 July - 6 August).
  23. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 3 (The Knight Bus) - The sky was getting a little lighter. He would lie low for a couple of hours, go to Gringotts the moment it opened, then set off — where, he didn’t know. [...] he had walked right into Cornelius Fudge, the Minister of Magic himself. [...] “So all that remains,” said Fudge, now buttering himself a second crumpet, “is to decide where you’re going to spend the last three weeks of your vacation. I suggest you take a room here at the Leaky Cauldron and —” [...] “Room eleven’s free, Harry,” said Fudge.
  24. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 4 (The Leaky Cauldron) "But the thing that tested Harry’s resolution most appeared in his favourite shop, Quality Quidditch Supplies, a week after he’d arrived at the Leaky Cauldron.
