Hey all! Did you guys know about Bloomsbury hosting a Harry Potter Book Night tonight?!
Here is what Bloomsbury has to say about the event:
February 5th 2015 will see the first ever Harry Potter Book Night. This exciting event gives new and existing fans a chance to share the wonder of J.K. Rowling’s unforgettable stories and, most excitingly, to introduce the next generation of readers to the unparalleled magic of Harry Potter. You are hereby invited to embrace the magic!
Bloomsbury Children’s Books is inviting schools, bookshops, libraries and community groups to host early-evening events in celebration of Harry Potter Book Night. We have created a complete Harry Potter Book Night Kit – available for free download – offering you everything you need to plan and host an unforgettable evening. The only missing ingredient is your own ideas and flair!
The kit includes invitation templates, an event poster, games, activities and quizzes as well as ideas for dressing up and decorating the venue. Register for the downloadable Event Kit below.
Bloomsbury Children’s Books will be marking Harry Potter Book Night on February 5th in our key territories, giving fans across the world an opportunity to join in the celebrations. We'd love to hear how you're planning to celebrate Harry Potter Book Night on Facebook and Twitter using #HarryPotterBookNight!
There are events going on in New York, but unfortunately, none are local. A few events in NYC and some further upstate (Albany, Saratoga) as well... but of course, none in little 'ol Binghamton. Of course that just means that I have to do it on my own! I am currently rereading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix for the Harry Potter reread with Sheila at Book Journey, so I will spend my night curled up with that. I have all the fixings to make hot Butterbeer Latte at home, so I will indulge in that sweetness too. Maybe I will watch some Harry Potter today too - or at least listen to the soundtrack!
Here is the recipe I use for hot Butterbeer Latte:

Let's talk for a minute about how gorgeous the new Bloomsbury kids editions are. OH MY GOSH. I so wish I had access to them! Not available in the US, unless of course I sneaky order through Amazon.co.uk - but the shipping cost is more than the price of all of the books combined! UGH. But seriously, how beautiful are these new covers?!! I am so in love with them. They're stunning! If you haven't already seen them - check them out below... and trust me, you want to click on them to see them larger and in more detail - it is well worth it. *drool*
How will you celebrate the first Harry Potter Book Night?
