Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone came to Tomball Library

Today the magical world of Harry Potter came to Tomball Community Library. Two live screech owls appeared and were discussed in the Children’s Department; Platform 93/4 emerged and people made snapshots of themselves in front of it; staff wore Hogwarts costumes, and the entire first book of the Harry Potter series was read. Although it may not be appropriate to blow our own horns, the staff involved did a magically wonderful job!

Book Hunters in Brief #79: Harry Potter's First Publication Anniversary

A lot of us grew up with Harry Potter--literally. That was part J.K. Rowling's genius; her character's aged in a fairly good facsimile of real time right along with her target audience. Another part of her genius was not just the originality and charm of the world she imagined, but it's completeness. We stepped into the world of Harry Potter and it was both strange and oddly familiar--much like the world we live in--only more full of possibilities, more morally well-defined, more fun.

My Journey Beta Testing for Pottermore

On Monday morning @ approximately 9:30 am, I discovered in my personal email something I had been waiting a month for. My Pottermore welcome email.  I excitedly jumped into the experience as one of the first million people invited to be Beta testers and began my journey.

The Adults of Harry Potter

It’s to Alan Rickman’s credit that I became a huge fan of Harry Potter. Really. Oh, I’d been mildly curious about the phenomenon of the books about the boy wizard. But it wasn’t until I read that Alan Rickman was going to be in the first movie that I actually picked up Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and read it.
