More Reading Material for Muggles from JK Rowling

We are huge Muggle-loving fans in our family. And this summer has brought a treasury of reading from author JK Rowling.

We kicked off our summer reading with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. While reading it, I discovered a particular sense of torture:

Me: Kids, we'll read one scene a night...

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Screenplay-order from Amazon (affiliate link included)Kids: (Shocked tone.) What!!!

Me: Well, we have to savor it...It's been like 10 years since the last book came out. Who knows when the next Harry Potter story will come out -- or if it ever will.

Kids: That's torture!

Needless to say, The Cursed Child has wiggled its way out of my bedroom and into my daughter's collection.

JK Rowling's Pottermore Presents: Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies (Kindle Edition)
Even better than a new Harry Potter book is the idea of not one but three collections of wizarding stories coming out next month! Called "Pottermore Presents," these books feature a collection of short stories straight out of the digital wizarding world of Pottermore:
The good news is the Pottermore Presents books will be available in multiple languages, including Dutch, French, Spanish and Italian. (Know anyone taking a foreign language? This would be fun to surprise them with!)

The bad news is these are only available at this time as Kindle editions. That means we either have to share devices, or simply be patient for the day these come out in print!

These will tide me over on my wizard-world fix, until I check out the Fantastic Beasts movie and have a Harry Potter/wizard theme lock-in with my Scouts.

While I don't know that I'll be getting a new wand through the Amazon affiliate program any time soon, it's nice to know that I can share fun finds and deals, and I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.
