Harry Potter Readalong, Week I Don't Even Know

Azkaban. More like AzkabAM, amirite? (did anyone make that joke last week? I'm really tired)

But hey hey hey -- Imma let you finish, but this is the greatest Azkaban internet thing of all time:


Sirius isn't evil! (but he is a dick) Peter Pettigrew! Who saw that coming! Who! (not me, man. y'know. like 12 years ago.)

I'm pretty much drunk, so HAPPY POST.

Here's the dealie-o: PLOT-wise, this is probs the best of the first three. So much intrigue! Who is good! Who is bad! I don't KNOW! Complicated feeliiiiings!

Except I don't like Sirius. I don't like Lupin. I don't like Snape. And I obviously don't like Peter. So that whole confrontation scene's kinda....not too jazzy for me. I mean, it's interesting dramatically, but I care not at all about the people involved. Except the kids. They should be kept safe. THINK OF THE CHILDREN.

Oh, and there're some more Dementors. Who really seem like a terrible idea, but whatevs, I'm not Minister of Magic (if I were, points scored with the Quaffle would go up to 30, because REALLY? ten? that's bullshit right there).


Goblet of Fire gets started for next week. It's a good'un. And Hufflepuff gets featured! Along with their only acclaimed member. C'mon, J.K. I know we're not flashy, but he's the ONLY cool Hufflepuff? False. Stop showing Gryffindor favoritism. We will revolt.

or have a wicked-awesome dance party

How to Build a Girl Introductory Post, which is full of wonderful things you probably want to read

Acclaimed (in England mostly) lady Caitlin Moran has a novel coming out. A NOVEL. Where before she has primarily stuck to essays. Curious as we obviously were about this, I and a group of bloggers are having a READALONG of said novel, probably rife with spoilers (maybe they don't really matter for this book, though, so you should totally still read my posts). This is all hosted/cared for/lovingly nursed to health by Emily at As the Crowe Flies (and Reads) because she has a lovely fancy job at an actual bookshop ( Odyssey Books , where you can in fact pre-order this book and then feel delightful about yourself for helping an independent store). Emily and I have negotiated the wonders of Sri Lankan cuisine and wandered the Javits Center together. Would that I could drink with her more often than I have. I feel like we could get to this point, Emily INTRODUCTION-wise (I might've tipped back a little something this evening, thus the constant asides), I am Alice. I enjoy

Harry Potter 2013 Readalong Signup Post of Amazingness and Jollity

Okay, people. Here it is. Where you sign up to read the entire Harry Potter series (or to reminisce fondly), starting January 2013, assuming we all survive the Mayan apocalypse. I don't think I'm even going to get to Tina and Bette's reunion on The L Word until after Christmas, so here's hopin'. You guys know how this works. Sign up if you want to. If you're new to the blog, know that we are mostly not going to take this seriously. And when we do take it seriously, it's going to be all Monty Python quotes when we disagree on something like the other person's opinion on Draco Malfoy. So be prepared for your parents being likened to hamsters. If you want to write lengthy, heartfelt essays, that is SWELL. But this is maybe not the readalong for you. It's gonna be more posts with this sort of thing: We're starting Sorceror's/Philosopher's Stone January 4th. Posts will be on Fridays. The first post will be some sort of hilar

Minithon: The Mini Readathon, January 11th, 2020

The minithon is upon us once more! Minithons are for the lazy. Minithons are for the uncommitted. Minithons are for us. The minithon lasts 6 hours (10 AM to 4 PM CST), therefore making it a mini readathon, as opposed to the lovely Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon and 24in48, both of which you should participate in, but both of which are a longer commitment than this, the Busy Watching Netflix person's readathon. By 'read for six hours' what's really meant in the minithon is "read a little bit and eat a lot of snacks and post pictures of your books and your snacks, but mostly your snacks." We like to keep it a mini theme here, which mainly means justifying your books and your snacks to fit that theme. Does your book have children in it? Mini people! Does it have a dog! Mini wolf! Does it have pencils? Mini versions of graphite mines! or however you get graphite, I don't really know. I just picture toiling miners. The point is, justify it or don't
