Universal Studios: New Harry Potter World Additions and Re-Read Kick Off

Happy Kick-Off to the Re-Read Readathon for Harry Potter!  This Re-Read happened to coincide with my son and my annual Florida trip to Universal Studios… more importantly Harry Potter World.  If you are a Potter Head, such as myself, you are probably aware – or at least heard Muggle mumblings of additions being made to …

Morning Meanderings…. A New Harry Potter Book? I Am Not Sure…

I swear some days my sheltered world surprises me. I am not a newspaper reader.  I am not a news on TV watcher.  I do not follow any website for the “happenings” in our world – either entertainment wise or real world stuff.  I used to…. but now my world is all a little too …

Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire by J K Rowling

Year 4:  A brief recap in my words:  Harry is able to go with the Weasley’s before school starts to see International Quidditch Cup being played (think Super bowl but with brooms and a snitch).  This is a big deal and getting away from the Dursley’s early is icing on the cake! Yet that is …

Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling (#hpreadalong)

Book 3 (already!) for the Harry Potter re-readalong.  It is now the summer before the 3rd year of Hogwarts.  Harry is once again at home with the Dursley’s nothing has changed… in fact now that they know that Harry is not allowed to perform magic outside of school, things have become a bit worse.  When …

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling (HP Readalong w/giveaways!)

    This is the first book from our Harry Potter Re-Readalong (not too late to join in!) I wish I could remember exactly when I read this book for the first time.  I believe it was sometime around when the first movie came out in 2001.  I remember wanting to know what my sons …

Where In The World Am I (with pictures!)

Hi everyone!  I have not fallen off the face of the earth, been abducted by aliens, or surrendered to the zombies.  Nope…. alive and well and currently in Orlando Florida with College son Justin. 😀 We landed here on Thursday morning after the worst flight of my life (do not book Spirit airlines – LONG …

Morning Meanderings… POTTERMORE!!! and Thoughts on Banned Books

Good morning! How is everyone?  I am doing rather well here, had a great day yesterday, mowed the lawn for what I think is probably the final time for the year and received my Pottermore link to get in. Yup – that’s right… last night I finally experienced a little bit of Pottermore which has …

Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling – special anniversary addition

In the beginning…. it was The Dursley’s at the (now famous) address of Four Pivet Drive, also the opening line to the book.  The Dursley’s kept to themselves, not liking anything out of the ordinary – but that was about to change. One day… a very odd day filled with strangely cloaked persons and owls …
