Quidditch Through the Ages by J.K. Rowling (Kennilworthy Whisp)
(Started: May 10, 2010; Finished: May 10, 2010)

Two new books penned by J.K. Rowling will help tide over Harry Potter fans as they await book five, and raise money for a good cause: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander, an A to Z listing of all beings magical (and required reading for all first-year Hogwarts students), and Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp (a "renowned Quidditch expert"), the official handbook of the wizard's sport of choice, both with a foreword by esteemed Hogwarts headmaster Dumbledore. Rowling wrote the books to raise funds for Comic Relief in the U.K., a charitable organization helping the poor and disadvantaged in Africa and the U.K.! (not affiliated with the U.S. Comic Relief organization). Many printers and paper suppliers are joining in the effort by donating their services. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

I love how she made these other Hogwarts schoolbooks that we can actually read alongside Harry Potter. It was like she already launched Pottermore but through pen and paper. I love how we can also learn more about Quidditch and to be able to embrace the sport that all of us just imagined.

What can I say? J.K. Rowling, you’re the best!

I'm gonna play Quidditch all day.
I'm gonna play Quidditch all night.
'Cause when I'm on my broom .
Everything's right.

Like It's Quidditch by Nice Peter

Like it's quidditch by Nice Peter on Grooveshark
I'll be standing in line
Dressed like a wizard.
Broken glasses in my eyes
Got the figures
Got Hermione's wand
She's the best witch.
Watching Harry Potter
Feeling fly like it's Quidditch.

For the quotes I got from the book, please visit my Tumblr:
Happy Reading Everyone!
