My Security Blanket's Name is Harry Potter

Welcome to July, otherwise known as HARRY POTTER MONTH! If I were running the show that alone would suffice for an Important Announcement. Since I'm not, here's the official midnight release party announcement of the week: We'll be running Harry Potter MadLibs! (Side note: I just received the Harry Potter coloring sheets yesterday and they are fantastic.) Lastly, there are still spots open for the fan fic open mic. Sign up here! This week's blog post comes from Bookseller Tildy:

Harry Potter and the 4th of July

Happy 4th, folks! We've entered the home stretch - Harry Potter's birthday month! We're taking the holiday off of our Harry Potter blog series and will see you all bright and early next Monday, July 11 Hope you're all keeping cool and having fun today.

Two weeks ago Bookseller Heather talked about how excellent it is to read Harry Potter aloud, as a family.

But I’m still reading poetry, writing it, and loving it, even if I’m not writing about it quite as much as I’d like to. So, to scratch my own poetry itch, here are some relatively new works of poetry that I think you should read.
