Welcome back to the Rogues Portal Book Club, readers! 

It’s officially August so that means it’s time to start reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets! The Rogues Portal Book Club will meet on Monday, August 28th at 1 PM on the Rogues Portal Twitter and on our hashtag, #RPBookClub. Y’all were rockstars last month in our chat on Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, I had so much fun chatting with you all. 

If this is your first time joining us, welcome! You can catch up on last month’s discussion in our July Wrap-Up post here

I’m going to be honest – I’m nervous about this month’s book. I remember really liking Chamber of Secrets as a kid. I was a pretty constant defender of it – nearly all of my friends rank it pretty low on their “oh-god-do-I-have-to-choose” rankings of the Harry Potter books. 

My constant cries of “but it’s got some really good bits!” have always fallen on deaf ears. There are distinct things I remember laughing out loud about while reading. The valentines! Fred and George’s everything! A flying Ford Anglia! I’m hoping the book still delivers, that I enjoy it just as much as I had when I was eight. What did you think of it, if you’ve read it before?

You can let us know on Twitter or on our Patreon-only Rogues Portal Book Club Slack channel! For $5 a month you can chat with me and other Rogues Portal Book Club members about Harry Potter or just about anything else! We’re having a lot of fun on the Slack, don’t miss out! 

See you in the Slack or on Monday, August 28th at 1 PM EST on Twitter! Don’t forget to hashtag your tweets #RPBookClub
