Harry Potter month

Harry Potter Month readathon

As you may have heard, Micheline and I are hosting Harry Potter month throughout the month of July – a celebration of all things Harry Potter! You can post about pretty much anything Harry Potter related, take part in the House Cup at any time throughout the month, and – new for this year – we have the Harry Potter readathon element!

  • For any book you finish during July that fits in with a prompt below, you’ll earn 20 House Points! 
  • If you complete all of the prompts associated with a particular Harry Potter book you get an additional 25 bonus points.
  • If you finish all 8 books, you can claim an additional 50 bonus points
  • You can read more than one book per prompt if you want to
  • [Graphic novels are worth half as many points because they’re so quick to read in comparison to a novel]
