Harry Potter Read-A-Thon


So every year, without fail, the first snowflake falls and I'm instantly transported to that magical world created by J.K. Rowling, staring at the ceiling of the great hall, or hearing the armor sing Christmas carols. I know I'm not the only one (especially judging by how many times Harry Potter is on TV during this season), so I thought I'd have a little fun with it.

So I'm officially inviting you to my blog's Harry Potter Read-A-Thon! 

I challenge you to get lost in the world of Harry Potter sometime in the next three months, and of course I will be joining you! For every book you read from the Harry Potter series, I will give you some digital freebies (a wallpaper, an illustration, or maybe something even cooler). If you finish all seven books you'll receive a physical prize!

So read them by yourself or with your kids, or listen to them while you clean or in the car. I don't care how you do it, just immerse yourself in the wizarding world somehow. Then shoot me an email at how.not.to.be.a.zombie @ gmail telling me what your favorite part of the book was, and I'll send you some free digital goodies. Once you've finished all seven books let me know, and I'll send you a free goodie back packed with stickers and other prizes!

If you want to enhance your reading experience, try pairing it with Pottermore, the official Harry Potter companion on the internet.

You can also pretend that you're reading in your favorite common room, with the help of this audio atmosphere list.

And yes, if you've already read the books I expect you to re-read them to get the freebies. This challenge is all about getting lost in the world! Also, if you have only watched the movies, I urge you to give the books a try. They are fantastic, and I promise that when you are done you'll love the series more.

I hope to you enjoy this challenge as much as I do!
