Way back in May we learned that JK Rowling would soon release four new books. The internet went a little crazy as some of us anticipated long queues outside the bookstore, maybe even camping overnight, to get our hands on a brand new HP book and devour every word in the first 24 hours.
Well, the new books may not stand up to the hype of the release of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (20 years ago on 8th July) and they may be e-books instead of real, cozy-smelling paper versions, but the new release is still exciting and it’s happening on Thursday!
In news released on Pottermore.com, the publishers say we should all prepare “to delve deeper into the rich history of magic with this new series of eBook shorts, inspired by the British Library exhibition and its companion books, Harry Potter: A History of Magic.”
The first two books, A Journey Through Charms and Defence Against the Dark Arts and A Journey Through Potions and Herbology will be available this Thursday. A Journey Through Divination and Astronomy and A Journey Through Care of Magical Creatures will be published in July and August respectively.
