Re: Re-reading

Oh Sky! You just reminded me! That's true. When taking audiobooks into account - and especially those you fall asleep too, I am sure it's actually more likely to be the Nightrunner series for me. And for me it's definitely a cost thing; I just don't have the chance to get as many audiobooks as I nee...

Re: Virtual Reality Gaming - The OASIS

I am not aware of any that exist other than the ones you already mentioned, but I would love to try a game that is fully immersive like you describe. It does have its pitfalls of course, but I can also see a lot of potential in it. If for instance you have to move in Reality to move in the game, it ...

Re-reading

Re-reading is a funny thing. Because usually it's a book we know very well that we keep coming back to. At least that's how it is for me. I don't want to re-read it because I forgot what it was about, quite the opposite: I want to re-read it because I remember very well and want to experience it aga...

Study tips

The end of term is coming very close indeed and most of us are likely scrambling to get those last minute assignments in. Many might even have muggle school deadlines coming up. So while it's still in fresh memory (and for those of us who are still struggling to make it in time!), I'd like to know w...

Adding Words to Dictionaries

New words are invented all the time and some even begin to make their way into popular usage. Muggle is one of the words from our very own Harry Potter Universe to have made it's way into more wide-spread usage, going beyond the books and entering the mainstream. This led to the word being added to ...

Re: Spring 2018 Introductions

Hi, I am Gail Allen, and I am a second year Ravenclaw. I have always absolutely loved mythologies, so seeing that there was on on Greek Mythology I kind of had to take it. So far it's proving very interesting and I don't regret for a moment that I decided to take it! Other classes I am taking this t...

Re: Round and Round

Yes! That happens to me too. And it's absolutely horrible. With me it's very often snippets of Christmas songs that get stuck when we're talking about songs getting stuck that I didn't even like to begin with - because let's face it, when I get a song stuck on my brain chances are I won't like it af...

Fairytales by Hans Christian Anderson

Today is the birthday of one of the most well known authors of fairy tales in the world. Most of us have read at least some of the fairytales he was written, or watched movies made based on them. They are so ingrained in culture that many people might not even realize they know them. But if you've e...

It's the 1st of April and that means: April Fool's Day! I've not told any outrageous stories this year...

Your Book case

What does your book case look like? Is it neatly sorted with all the backs in a neat and even row and authors sorted alphabetically, or are they all sorted according to height or colour perhaps? Or are you like me and have more of a system of "If I can cram in one more book here, I will!" ...

Classics

We often hear about these books - particularly in school. And I've often wondered... what exactly do people understand by it. What is a classic to them? Of course there is something with age to many of them, but then, people already said Harry Potter was a classic before the last book was published,...

We don't do spring break, but we do have Easter holiday. It lasts from tomorrow until Monday for people in general. Schools started it already on the 24th though, so they do get a full week. I never did anything particular during that holiday, but we have had family visit us when I was younger and w...
