Line 147: Line 147:
 
Lockhart was an accomplished author, with twelve of his books shown. Although nine of them were supposed to be about eradicating dark forces, they were in fact just recollections of his experiences (of which he stole from other people) and his personal profiles, somewhat an extension of his autobiography. All of these were published before his stint as a Hogwarts professor (except ''Who Am I?''). Due to the immense popularity, the books were very expensive; he gifted an entire set to Harry Potter as a publicity stunt, to which Harry donated to Ginny Weasley.

Lockhart assigned [[seven]] of these books to be his textbooks for his [[Defence Against the Dark Arts]] course, though it was simply an excuse for him to sell his works to the students, as none of them have any educational usefulness. After the first lesson ended up in disaster, Lockhart simply read from these books aloud and sometimes reenact the contents to the class in a theatrical manner.

He gave an overly long "[[Defence Against the Dark Arts Second Year Essential Knowledge Test|little quiz]]" during the first lesson to test out how much his students took in from his collected works, but most show little interest and did poorly. After the first lesson ended up in disaster, Lockhart simply read from these books aloud and sometimes reenact the contents to the class in a theatrical manner.
