Alrightie. So. The incredibly awesome, hilariously funny and a girl I just downright love, Sarah, of saz101 is hosting a "Potterthon" this month with her girl Laura in celebration of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone 15 years! And to celebrate they've got one awesome month lined up for us all with a read-along, Potter related posts, character related debates, giveaways and more!
Now, normally I would have thought this was great and all but probably would have thought "meh, but do you know why I don't? BECAUSE I FINALLY READ THE HARRY POTTER SERIES!
Yep, that's right. It may have taken me 15 years but in my blog absence I finally gave in and read the entire series, one book straight to the next. Sure I've seen (and love) the movies, but it's taken me until now to sit down an actually read the series. And I'm so glad I did. Now I truly know why everyone adores this book series. I meat Harry, Hermione, Ron, Hagrid, Dumbledoor, Hedwig, Snape, Ginny, Neville, Luna, Sirius, Dobby, Fred, George, Mrs Weasly, Mr Weasly, Professor Magonagal and all the wacky teachers at Hogwarts. Even Draco, Lucius, Bella Lestrange and He Who Shall Not Be Named.....I could go on and on....they're just awesome. Honestly, I'm so thrilled I finally read the series.
But enough about me.....let's talk Potterthon. I may be a tad busy to re-read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone but that doesn't mean you all shouldn't. Plus, this is the perfect opportunity for those who were like me and who haven't yet read the books to finally dive into the wonderful world of Hogwarts Witchcraft and Wizardry. Come on. You know you want to.
Head on over to saz101 and read the event announcement to find out just what to expect and see all the fun yourself!
