Two of our Book Clubs hosted over on the Leaky Lounge forums have opened up readings of two new books starting today. First up, our Harry Potter Book Club has now started their reading of the forth novel in author J. K. Rowling’s series, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Secondly, Jo’s Book Nook, home of our Non-Harry Potter book club, has chosen the Charles Dickens classic David Copperfield as their next reading group selection. This book is available for purchase via our own Cauldron Shop. Both of these communal book readings are open to all registered MyLeaky members and feature in-depth discussions about both of these novels. Join in now with your fellow Lounge members to take part in this most fun and thought-provoking reading group discussion. Enjoy!

Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Now that I am out of school, I hope that I am able at last to participate!Avatar Imagelilhpchick20 says: I so wish I could get involved in this but I always lose track of the posting and get so frustrated that it is no longer fun.Avatar ImageMoldywort17 says: Dan Radcliffe was in a David Copperfield movie I saw once...Avatar Imagegreatpetie83 says: Coincidently I'm reading David Copperfield at the moment on my iPod. Si maybe I'll join in. Going trough the English classics at the moment. Dutch literature isn't that rich I find.Avatar ImageDreamteam says: Garden State Geek, no this isn't old news, the GoF Book Club opened on 1 May (not to be confused with the GoF Reading Groups which discuss at a different pace and with a different focus) and the Book Nook started discussing David Copperfield on 2 May. Neither of the discussions discusses chapter by chapter, the discussions are all topic based, some are in depth, some are just for fun so please, come and dip your toes in. :)Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I could give David Copperfield a go, seeing as I'm officially unemployed nowAvatar ImageCatherine says: great! i'll check it out!Avatar ImageWitByndMsr says: Oooo, I've always wanted to read David Copperfield!Avatar Imageiconshero says: cool!Avatar Imageiconshero says: cool!Avatar ImageLulaL says: GoF is close to finished, but I got in and am having fun commenting anyway.Avatar Imageloony_slytherin says: Wish I had more time...Avatar Imagejenbabe705 says: I wish I could take part in these.. I'm just too busy!Avatar Imagekbicprez says: GOF was my favorite HP book until I read Deathly Hallows. I loved the fact that Harry, Ron, and Hermione began to experience all that teen angst in GOF. I loved it!Avatar ImageAttolia says: That is really weird. I started reading David Copperfield a few weeks ago and I didn't even know it had been chosen for the Book Nook. And that's happened a few times. Apparently, I have a knack for that.Avatar ImageSlytherin Princess101 says: Cool!! :)Avatar Imagekbicprez says: Dickens writing style has always been tough for me. When I read “Oliver Twist”, I had to plod thru the first several chapters before I felt comfortable with his style. But I love that he chose to write about the downtrodden. Many of his contemporaries, like Jane Austen, focused on the British upper classes. I love Austen. She’s one of my all-time favorite writers, but Dickens stories are truly haunting and I will keep plodding on.Avatar Imageascendancy33 says: Awesome newsAvatar Imagekenmarekestrels93 says: cool, I just started reading GoF again!Avatar ImageAngelasCrochetingCorner says: I'm going to check this out.Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: Awesome!Avatar Imagemugglemom4 says: I have been so absorbed in my leaky I forgot about the book clubs :(Avatar Imagelau399 says: wow this is great. I'm going to go right away Avatar Imagebrentbrehony says: Cool love GOF just finished not to long ago!!
