    Pottermore Just Announced An Official "Harry Potter" Book Club And, Wow, Yes, Sign Me Up


    Well, it's really happening: There's going to be an *official* Harry Potter book club for us all.

    Hermione can't stop screaming.

    In honor of the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone — omg, I'm going to cry tears of nostalgia — Pottermore (from J.K. Rowling) is creating the Wizarding World Book Club.


    Basically, beginning in June, there's going to be a free, online club where new and current fans can debate the series together.

    According to Pottermore, the goal of the club is "to create a global community of Harry Potter readers who are communicating with each other as they are reading the same book, at the same time."

    Although this isn't the first online space we've seen dedicated to discussing the books — there's Scholastic's Harry Potter Reading Club, Wizard Book Club, Reddit, and, of course, the BuzzFeed comment section — I'm not about to start complaining about more opportunities to read.

    Because, let's be real, there's nothing better than a new group that's all about both letting fans relive the magic and introducing the wondrous world to a bunch of HP fans that don't even exist yet.

    To be a part of the ~experience~, all you have to do is read the selected book every one to two months (depending on the length of the book) and then participate in online discussions with other fans.

    In addition to exploring the new materials that will be created by Pottermore just for the club, every week, members will get to talk about a selected theme via the club's official Twitter account.

    So get ready, fans, because we're about to have some ~lively~ conversations about the wonderful wizarding world of Harry Potter.

    (But we'll probably mostly just talk about how Professor McGonagall is the best thing that's ever happened to us.)
