Now what do I read?
|Theme:||After Harry Potter: Now what should I read?|
|About:||As I have had Harry Potter items in my Amazon purchase history, I am often recommended books (by Amazon) that I may enjoy based on having read the HP series. I also have a few friends who send ideas my way.|
I usually look the suggestions over and think one (or several) look intriguing, but as a second-year graduate student, have little time to read for pleasure. Friends, both on and off-line are also busy, but will generally pass book titles my way when they have had time to sit back and read.
This community originated on LJ, and I did interest searches there for "after HP" and primarily came away with communities for fan fiction after book 7. But that's not what this community is for.
From being in the HP fandom for the last 4-5 years, I've discovered that many of us share a number of common interests.
Thus, I want to hear from fans of the HP books who have discovered other published literary gems (not fan fiction) that are likely to be of interest to other HP fans!
1. Your posts should include book title, author's name, and genre. Please use relevant tags as well. (At minimum, tags should include your IJ name and the book title.)
2. If it's a series, please include what number in the series the book your sharing is.
3. NO PLOT SPOILERS. It doesn't matter if the book was published in 1960 -- you are suggesting it on the premise that no one here has read it yet.
4. While adhering to rule 3, please include a brief description of the book and why you think others here would enjoy it. It's all right if you haven't finished it yet.
4A. Please use your own words, not the description on a book seller's site. This is not a place to practice plagiarism. :)
5. You will not advertise your communities here.
6. Flames & Trolling are unacceptable and may result in instant removal and banning when discovered.
7. Introduction posts are not necessary. However, if you have a completely / mostly empty profile and give me the impression you might be a troll, be expecting an e-mail from me asking you a few questions before I unmoderate you for future posting.
8. Your *first* post will be moderated to make sure you read the above.
