What is the Potter Binge you ask? The Harry Potter Readalong is a fabulous event being hosted by The Estella Society where a bunch of people can join together to read or reread some or all of the Harry Potter books from November 1-January 31. My favorite part of this event is the use of #potterbinge as you post your thoughts on social media. For some reason it is just so catchy for me!
Most of you know that I had not read the Harry Potter books prior to this year. So far this year, I’ve listened to the first three on audio (that Jim Dale is an AMAZING narrator), but I’ve stalled at the 4th book (the audio is just too long for the limited amount of time I’m in my car). I decided this was the perfect opportunity to get back on track and read the last 4 books (although I’m also in the midst of Nonfiction November so I might put some of this reading off until December and January). My 10 year old niece has also recently discovered the Potter love, and I want to be able to chat with her about the books as she finished them.
I’m really excited to join a group that is reading the infamous series at the same time I am. I’m just hoping to not encounter too many spoilers along the way (although I’m already aware of several – there’s no way these days to not hear about Harry and his friends). I hope you join in on the fun – I’d love to chat with you!
