Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Reading Group Sorting Now Open

Sorting is now open for the reading group discussion of the book that started it all: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.  Located in the Lily and Stag Inn section of our Leaky Lounge forums, the reading groups offer Lounge members the opportunity to come together to rediscover the many aspects of the series and uncover new meanings behind the story.  The small groups dissect one book at a time, chapter by chapter, looking beyond the surface of the text and getting down to the deeper meaning.  To get sorted into your intimate and cosy reading group, please click here to be sorted.  

Enjoy!

Oh, that sounds so fun! Unfortunately I am in summer school for extra credit so I don’t have time to do it! :(

What we need is more people in the discussions; there are only two or three people at a time contributing.

It’s definitely fun but I fail to start a discussion as the point I’m about to make has already been made or is pretty obvious. :P

I’m going to try this. I am actually reading HBP at the moment, but I have read SS so many times I have it memorized. lol

Is it just me, or is the Lily and Stag kind of a confusing place? It’s interesting, and the conversation is awesome, but I feel kind of lost in there. (Rookie!)

The Lily and Stag is a confusing place. It took me atleast four tries till I was sorted. But everyone is sorted into the same place anyway. But overall it’s fun!

Nope, it’s not just you. I’m kinda lost too. But hang out at the off-topic place for a while and get to know people. And then visit the links page given to you in a PM. Just an idea. ___
