Today, in our Slack, we had a heated argument about Harry Potter. As always there was no truce. I can’t call my self a Potterhead now, because I don’t know every goddamn fact from every book, but the series still holds a special place in my heart.
My school education was in my native language, Gujarati. So, my formal introduction to English was much later in my education. In effect, I have never studied Shakespeare or any of ‘classic’ English literature. Harry Potter was one of the first English novels I read, and I really appreciate those stories that got me reading more books.
I even indulged in Harry Potter related games and spent countless hours on Pottermore. So today, I decided to dedicate or include some Potter-based entertainment for you:
- Harry Potter’s author, JK Rowling, has launched a new website called Harry Potter at home, with tons of activities and quizzes.
- The first book of the series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is available on Audible, narrated by Stephen Fry.
- The Office’s John Krasinski has a new show on YouTube called Some Good News, a compilation of crowdsourced feel-good news sent to the actor.
- Humble is offering some great games under its Conquer COVID-19 bundle.
