Welcome to Harry Potter and the Book Seven KAL, the place to read, talk, knit and crochet all things Harry. Inspired by my friend Ann, who decided to re-read each book, in order, between now and the release of The Deathly Hollows, I decided a Knit-a-long, Read-a-long in honor of the end of the series was in order. Is it possible the Harry series is almost at a close? Can it really have been nearly ten years since the release of Sorcerer's Stone? Is the time to the final book going to drag by?
Well, pull out your boxed sets, dust-off your burgundy and gold yarn, and set to a project!
We'll take the books in order, one to a month. However, due to the length of Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets and the time left between now and the last book, we'll read both these books in the month of Feb or at least start Chamber and carry it over into March with Azkaban. There are no hard and fast rules about what book you might want to discuss and all Harry subjects are welcome. The book a month provides only a simple chronology of what to read from now until the final book, which would look like this:
Feb- Sorcerer's Stone/Chamber of Secrets
March- Finish Chamber of Secrets/Prisoner of Azkaban
April- Goblet of Fire
May- Order of the Phoenix
June/start of July- Half-Blood Prince
July- Deathly Hollows!!!!
We'll be sorting people into their houses, so when you join please introduce yourself and let us know which house you either a) think you would be in b) have already been sorted into or (if you sorted the way you hoped!) c) both.
For questions please check the Guidelines section.
There will also be contests, one for books 1-3 and one for 4-6. Check Contests for rules and prize details!
