Harry Potter Read-Along Update February Fortescue
Welcome to the Autumn term! This year our Read-Along has begun with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Our Read-Along is off to a great start and we've over thirteen participants so far (I think thirteen is a lucky number, don't you?).

There's more fun to come, and you are welcome to join the Read-Along at any time! [READ MORE]
