First things first–happy birthday to my favourite angsty boy, Harry freakin’ Potter and his creator, JK Rowling. I’ve been planning this for a while and found a few others who had been planning on doing the same so we have joined forces! I’ll be listing everyone’s info at the bottom of this post, so if you’re in let me know and I’ll add you to the list.
This is really more of a buddy read than a read-a-thon, and there are no rules. Just read whichever HP books you want, in whichever order you want, and post about it or don’t–its up to you. Big thanks to Dayla from Confessions of a Book Addict for coming up with the hashtag also! I had a hard time and then in she swoops with this stroke of genius.
I made a Twitter banner/post for anyone to use if they want to as well:
Personally, I will be tweeting/posting my thoughts as I go along and then I will be writing a post per book I finish. Hopefully. I started listening to two Harry Potter podcasts, so I am currently feeling #inspired to get all English Major-y. I’ll probably continue listening as I read along. If you’re curious, the podcasts are Potterless and Harry Potter and the Sacred Text–they’re both great, so if you’re interested in this kind of thing you should go listen to them.
I’m not 100% sure what format my posts will take yet, but my current plans are:
- An important theme I noticed in the book and where it pops up
- A particular phrase or quote I love
- An under-appreciated character
- General thoughts (and criticism because god knows I have a lot of Thoughts™)
That’s it! Here are the original planners of this thing—other participants are below.
