We certainly can not have a Harry Potter Re-Read without House Points! Joining in on the points is certainly optional, do not feel you need to battle for points… however if you like a little extra fun in the long winter months, this could be the thing.
Below are listed ways to earn points. Your points will be kept track of here. Check back often as new ways to earn points may be added.
Write a start-up post – On or before November 1st write a post that lets people know you will be participating in this re-read, posting your house meme and linking back to the original sign up post. House Points: 5
Late Start up post – After November 1st but before November 30th write a post that lets people know you will be participating in this re-read, posting your house meme and linking back to the original sign up post. House Points: 2
Comment on any of the Start up posts that are linked on the Start up Post link. House Points: 1 per *relevant comment per post
Participate in any Giveaway/Quiz posts while giveaway is active by commenting or doing as instructed. These posts are found under the tab: Giveaway Posts. House Points: 3 per *relevant comment per post
Connecting with a post or commenting on the current book post found under the Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry post title. House points: 2 points per *relevant comment, 3 points for writing your own post (before, during, or after the read of each book) and linking it
Note: Relevant means “closely connected or appropriate to the matter at hand”. This means you will not receive points for comments like “stopped in to say hi, see my start-up post, nice post, good luck!” or any other comments redeemed unconnected to what the post is about.
Comment posts will be counted as house points only for up to 7 days after the post is posted, and if the post is linked to the Start Up Post link.

Is there a Twitter/Instagram hashtag we should use?
Yes! Thanks for bringing that up! #hpreadalong
Sheila, I’m totally racking up house points 😀 And having SO much fun doing it! Can’t wait for the quizzes and I’ll definitely be writing book posts 🙂 Hope you’re having fun with the buzzing bees 🙂
Oh good. Internet here is spotty so I am trying to stay current as much as I can. I am working 12 to 14 hour days so am quite exhausted. I hope to prep points so far for this first week as soon as I can find some time – and internet 😀
I actually feel bad that you have to try to keep track of all comments on the blogs! I can only imagine how tedious and time-consuming that is 😦
Have gotten to Black. Is he a “real” person? What are initials for this character?
Topaz, which book are you in?
