Freebie Friday: Harry Potter edition
It's Friday, and the sun has returned. What could possibly make this day better? How about a list of fantastic books that Read Streeters are enjoying, so I can add to my own collection?
I'm reading Irish author Sarah Rees Brennan's first novel, Demon's Lexicon. It follows a teenager and his family, who while being hunted by magicians, attempt to help a couple of teens with their demon problems. If you're looking for swords, mystery, a magical Goblin market and puppy love, this book was made for you.
While last week's freebies have already been mailed off, so they can be (hopefully) be enjoyed by Father's Day, I did come across a little gem that Potter fanatics are going to love: Harry Potter's Bookshelf: The Great Books Behind the Hogwarts Adventure, by John Granger.
Granger has written several books about Harry's world, including Looking for God in Harry Potter, but this one is exceptionally fun for die-hard readers.
Who can resist a suggested reading list including the books that influenced J.K. Rowling? Charles Dickens, C.S. Lewis, Dorothy L. Sayers, Stoker and Tolkien (of course) are just a few of the authors listed who devotees can begin exploring -- or just examine anew.
So let us know what you're reading, and it could be yours!
