Cover to Cover Day Comes to an End

Posted by at 6:57 pm in Harry Potter | Permalink

If you’ve been watching, I’m sure you saw that Harry Potter Cover to Cover Day ended about an hour ago — with Harry’s first year of Hogwarts over and Harry telling Ron, “They [the Dursley's] don’t know we’re not allowed to use magic at home. I’m going to have a lot of fun with Dudley this summer . . . “  Little does he know what he’s in for over the next six years.

We’re luckier than Harry: as the team that put this event together wished everyone a good night, they had a very exciting announcement. They’re already getting ready to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets next year with another amazing event!

But it’s time to say goodbye for today. As we were leaving the Scholastic lobby, the chair was already coming down, so Cover to Cover Day is truly over.

End

And since you’ve all seen what I had to say about today, I want to know what YOU think! Did you have fun today (either here or at home)?

    Hi! I really enjoyed seeing all the pictures and reading your entries about the day. I just wish I could have been there! My friend, Michael, was there around 9:30, but I didn’t see any pictures of him reading. When will you post the video archives, because I missed the live webcast as I was in school. Thanks!

    Thank You for giving us the most WONDERFUL opportunity! My daughter was very excited about going!!

    I had a ridiculous amount of fun yesterday. Thank you so much to everyone at Scholastic for being so nice to us all and gracious enough to host such a wonderful event.

  4. Pamela

    It was quite fun and thrilling to be there. I hope you do this for each book’s anniversary, perhaps in different cities so others get the chance to read aloud to us here in NYC.

    Carly, Thank you SOOOOO much for giving us the inside news the whole day. I was at school but we went to the lab to check in. Where is the chair now?
