Before you get too excited, I’m not about to reveal a new book in the much-loved Harry Potter franchise (sorry, I’m as gutted as you are!). But I am going to tell you that the magic is definitely not over, especially for newcomers to the Wizarding World.
The seven books have had a massive impact on the lives of millions. And now, a younger generation are getting the chance to experience this for themselves.
Potter fan-site, MuggleNet have started a new movement that’s seeing Potterheads share with the world what Harry, Ron and Hermione mean to them. Fans are being encouraged to leave a secret note in their favourite book, and donate it to a library or charity shop.
Be it their favourite quote, a message they took from the books or something else; these heartfelt notes are keeping the magic alive.
This got me wondering, what books meant the most to you growing up? And which timeless stories do you read over and over again?
In the day and age of the Internet, it’s so easy to read a blog or an e-book instead of picking up your favourite paperback. We’ve almost lost the magic of books (pun very much intended), and I think it’s important that we most definitely get this back!
So, I’d love to know what your favourite book is? Whether it’s a Roald Dahl classic, something by the Bronte sisters, or even the boy wizard himself, let’s talk books!
