We could all use a little magic right now couldn’t we? And, I’d like to think if anywhere is safe it would be Hogwarts. I really can’t contain my excitement about this year’s Magical Readathon and, if you find yourself needing a little reading motivation, look no further.
The Magical Readathon is in its third year and is hosting and organized by G at Book Roast. You can find the introductory YouTube Video here, the home site here, and the Magical Readthon site here. Just in case you haven’t already figured it out, G puts a ton of work into this readathon every year and I intend (per my 2020 socializing resolution!) to fully take advantage.
This year, probably in large part because of the COVID19, I am selecting Potioneer. Not only have I been spending an inordinate amount of time in my kitchen brewing up ridiculous meals with whatever I find in my pantry but I, like so many people, feel powerless to help. I’m quite infatuated with the idea of mixing up a potion that will cure this whole virus. Now, the only trick will be waiting until April 1st to dig into these books!
I am thrilled that I was able to find all of my prompts on my own bookshelf!
