Harry Potter Fan-Fiction Short Story

After finishing The Cursed Child I couldn't help reading enormous quantities of Harry Potter fan-fiction - fellow Potterheads know that the want for Harry Potter is insatiable-. While surfing Reddit I found a short story by user AtlasNoseItch, based on a prompt that said "Harry Potter is sitting at home sixty years after the battle of Hogwarts, an old man now, when suddenly his scar hurts". I found this story so moving that I asked the author if I could share it in the blog. Here it is!*

DIY Tassel Bookmarks

If there's something a bookworm can't have too much of - apart from books - that's bookmarks.

6 wonderfully narrated audiobooks

But, like with most things in my life, I gave it a try and ended up loving the thing I made fun of.

Of course, listening to a book is not the same as reading it, but I think in some cases the narrators are so wonderful they turn the same story into something else. Something worth of feeling ready to sleep while being read by a loved one.

These six audiobooks are on my wishlist right now, since their narrators are so great at reading the stories that I won't miss reading them myself.
