I missed the original Harry Potter buzz – I’m not sure how as I worked in a bookstore off and on from 1996-2002, during which the first four books were released. I made up for this last week, when I got swept up in my eight-year-old’s excitement over Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Recently, my daughter has started to carry an additional backpack to school – one of those square, drawstring, logo-laden bags that one can often acquire at an event. When asked what she carries in it, she replied, “My book club books!” Here is how the discussion went:
Me: “What does it mean to have book club?”
Her: “Me and Elle read and talk about books.” (Said with some disdain.)
Me: “When do you do book club?”
Her: “At recess.”
Me: “You take the library books outside?”
Her: “Only when it is nice out, we haven’t had book club in a while.”
Luckily for her, she has found special friends who share her love of reading.
