The Wizarding World Book Club Continues: Surprises In Store

by Christine Marie Attardo

 

This week brings the start of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets Wizarding World Book Club discussion! After one month of participating, I wanted to share some of my thoughts on the process. When I first contemplated joining the book club, I had a few reservations. However, there truly are no books like Harry Potter, so I dove right in.

Eager to see what the discussion would be like, I participated in a few of the Friday conversations on Twitter. At first, I felt like the topics were a bit disorganized. It didn’t seem like the moderator was paying too much attention to the responses, only retweeting five or six fan answers. Since then, I’m happy to say that the quality has improved greatly.

One major thing I felt that was lacking was a timeline. How many chapters should we read per week? Now we have an answer. Perhaps they just needed to get through the first book in order to figure out what would work best for this creative system. Here’s an example of what this week is asking for from the website:

 

 

Much better in my eyes! You need a good organizational system in order to have a fulfilling book club! I look forward to continuing with the club. Also, for those of you who haven’t signed up yet, it looks like they are also including a surprise on Pottermore for people who do.
