This is our first read with me, so I hope you enjoy the experience. Starting next week, I will be going chapter by chapter through Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to take a deeper look at the characters, plot, and themes. We will look at some historical references, mythology, and anything else that seems interesting.
I will be making my way through the book as both a reader and a writer, taking note of anything from word choice, character development, to questioning character motives and readability.
As our first Read With Me, I hope Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone will be accessible to everyone. Its a big task to provide a fresh look at a book so well loved and read.
We will begin with chapter one: The Boy Who Lived on Thursday!
