If you're like me, and millions of other fans, you are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, due out June 21, this Saturday. To help me get through this rough time period, I went to see the new movie, "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" that was released this past weekend.
If you are looking for other fixes before, or after you get your hands on the new book, or get to the new movie, try these suggestions:
- Waterboro Public Library in East Waterboro, Maine, list of Harry Potter Readalikes.
- Madison Public Library in Madison, Wisconsin also has a nice list of "What to Read while Harry's at the Hogwarts"
- Kansas City Public Library has also posted a Harry Potter Readlikes.
You get the idea. There are lots of good reads around. I know there's only one Harry Potter, but there are lots of good books and great characters that can capture your heart and your imagination. Happy Reading!
