Getting to review Valerie Frankel's “Harry Potter, Still Recruiting: An Inner Look at the Harry Potter Fandom” was an absolute treat for me. I've been a huge HP fan for a very long time. But my involvement in any fandom has taken a seat on the back burner since the birth of my first child.

Reviewing “Harry Potter, Still Recruiting: An Inner Look at the Harry Potter Fandom” gave me a chance to see it through a fresh set of eyes.

Nothing could have prepared me for this book

Interesting book for Harry Potter fanatics. I liked it, but it was a little bit more that this somewhat HP fan needed.

I makes sense that after the end of the original Harry Potter books others would keep the spirit alive, even if that spirit was through a parody (or many)of the tales of the nerdy-glasses wearing hero.

An interesting read, for sure. I would recommend this book to any Potter fan, or fanatic.

I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

I recieved this book through Goodreads.

I think this book is good for moderate fans, hardcore fans would probably already know most of the information, and lite fans probably wouldn't be interested.
