The Unofficial Harry Potter Vocabulary Bulider
By Sayre Van Young
You've read all the Harry Potter books word for word, but did you understand every single word? This book will help you understand thousands of words that were in all seven books. Prepare to understand Harry Potter on a whole new level, and increase your vocabulary all at the same time. This book is for everyone, not only the Hermione Grangers out there. Make something that's pleasurable also educational (actually scratch that, that makes it sound boring...). The point it, you can get a lot more out of the books than just the awesome story line. Also, did you know almost all the spells in Harry Potter are Latin words, AKA they literally mean something in Latin that relates to what they do? Also, did you know that a lot of the characters' names come from Latin words too? Check out my Hub about it here.
Quidditch Through the Ages
By J. K. Rowling
Quidditch is perhaps Harry's favorite thing to do, and more than once, he curled up with this book. Learn about the history of Quidditch and all that Harry read to help become such a good Quidditch player. Be the new Victor Krum with this manual to the wizarding world's favorite sport. This may seem kind of unnecessary, but the point is that there's another book that will keep you in the Harry Potter universe a little bit longer.
Harry Potter Collector's Handbook
By William Silvester
This handbook has everything that you need to know about Harry Potter. thousands of listings. It includes spells, protagonists, foes, and more! Anything you need help looking up, if you forget something, or if you just want to polish up on your Harry Potter trivia, this book is the one for you. Perhaps this would make a good companion for a rereading of the Harry potter books, or maybe this will help you stock up before a trivia night.
Harry Potter Film Wizardry
By Brian Sibley
Discover the magic behind the movies. How do they get the Hippogriffs to work with the actors? How was Hogwarts designed and built?,Where do Galleons, Sickles, and Knuts get minted? How do Dementors move the way they do? Find out why the Yule Ball ice sculptures never melt. The directors and crew maybe aren't wizards but they sure can do magic. This would be a good book to read for any lover of the books, but more importantly, any lover of the movies. If you're interested in film making or special effects, or how Harry Potter is brought to life on screen, this is a good read.
