Announcing: Harry Potter Re-read

So I have seen Deathly Hallows Part 2 and lo! it was awesome.

But, of course, with any great form of entertainment, everyone wants to talk about it, and it comes to pass that you realize that perhaps you don’t know what you’re talking about quite as well as you once did.

So, along those lines, we here at Where Landsquid Fear to Tread will be commencing on a re-read of all seven Harry Potter books.  We invite you to join us.

Every other Monday (start in two weeks, on August 1st) we will have a discussion post for whatever book we happen to be on.  We can compare notes, we can discuss theories, we can talk about whatsoever you want to talk about, as long as it has something remotely to do with whichever book we’re discussing.  We can even talk about the differences between the book and movie versions if you’d like.

Ms. Rowling is an expert at weaving in plot threads much earlier into the story than they’re actually needed.  If anything, it’s worth it to re-read the books just to see what we missed the first time around.

So tell your friends.  Tell your families.  We’ll meet back here on August 1st to discuss Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone.

The Landsquid and I hope to see you there.

    I’ve so been meaning to do this, though it sounds like this schedule is going to run into the next semester. Hmm…


  2. I actually may take you up on this– I’ve been meaning to re-read (and then get around to watching all the movies, woe) but will have to track down a new copy of the 5th and see if my sister has my 7th…

    I was talking about re-reading these books yesterday when mary (/sen/8dnail) said you were doing this, so I made her link me. So it’s discussion of one book every two weeks, is that it? I should be able to manage that on top of the rest of my summer reading. Which is considerable. I never seem to get a lot of time to read the rest of the year, so I kind of go crazy over the summer.
