N.E.W.Ts Readathon

Magical Readathon

I’m so excited for this readathon! I love these Harry Potter readathons, especially since so much thought goes into each one. The Twitter for this readathon is here and the challenges are here.

Before my O.W.Ls, I chose the alchemist as my career, partly because I was in a reading mood but also because Nicholas Flamel? Who wouldn’t want to be an alchemist? There were loads of careers I was interested in.
