Pottermore invites ‘Harry Potter’ fans to join a new official book club


Pottermore is launching a book club, revisiting the series 20 years after the first book came out.

The Wizarding World Book Club invites fans to reread the Harry Potter books, starting this Friday. You need a Pottermore account to participate, but once you’ve signed up, you can follow the series chapter by chapter, with themed discussions each week. It’s ideal for fans who missed out on the early-2000s heyday of Harry Potter fandom, when readers obsessively analyzed each new book as they came out.

It looks like Twitter will also be an important part of the book club, with the official account already introducing fans to each other. Could this end up being the biggest book club in the world?
