Any Harry Potter Fans in Your House?
If your family, like ours, have been waiting with baited breath for the latest Harry Potter movie (which was excellent, just so you know), one of the local library systems, KDL, has found a couple of books you may want to consider while we all wait for the two installments of the final book. For the record, I knew it was coming but I still was surprisingly sad at the end of #6.
Harry, A History by Melissa Anelli, founder of the Leaky Cauldron website, is truly a fascinating look at the HP fandom, including the founding of her website and how Harry Potter has changed her life. (OK, this seems a little far-fetched for me, but hey – who am I to judge?) It includes meeting J.K. Rowling and the creation of the “premier” Wizard Rock website.
Harry Potter Should Have Died: Controversial Views from the #1 Fan Site by Emerson Spartz & Ben Schoen of Mugglenet.com fame is a collection of essays debating different viewpoints on certain controversial issues (as well as some fun ones). As Beth from KDL says, “This book just goes to show that not every thing was answered in the final book.”
