Starting Harry Potter

In June 2017, Pottermore launched the Wizarding World Book Club, along with Bloomsbury and Scholastic:

This June, Pottermore is launching the official Wizarding World Book Club with Bloomsbury and Scholastic.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Pottermore invites fans old and new to join the Wizarding World Book Club – a free, online club to examine and debate every book in the Harry Potter series.

The Wizarding World Book Club kicks off in June, and to take part you just need to read (or re-read) a Harry Potter book each month – or more, as the books get longer. You can then join in a conversation about it on Twitter, or simply check Pottermore to learn more about each story.

Whether you’re a newcomer, or have read the books a thousand times over, the Wizarding World Book Club is the place for everyone to join the discussion on each of the seven Harry Potter stories.

There will be many ways to participate too. Each week, a new theme from the Harry Potter stories will be discussed over on Pottermore’s brand new Wizarding World Book Club Twitter account, @WWBookClub.

Register with Pottermore and you’ll soon be able to check out the Wizarding World Book Club dedicated section of the site, read new articles about each theme and even gather rewards for your reading progress.

More information about the Wizarding World Book Club, and how to participate, is on its way very soon. So whether you’re reading the books for the very first time, or fancy a nostalgic re-read, get ready to join in.

Hermione would most certainly approve.
