FINAL CHAPTER! Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince, Chapter 30, The White Tomb

October 30, 2020

A haunting send-off for the dead, and an ominous future for the living.  

COMING SOON: The final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  After almost 8 months of reading 4-7 chapters each week, we have come to the final book. I admit, I didn't think the pandemic would last as long as it has, but one silver lining has been the joy I've had reading your comments and watching as listeners from around the world have tuned in to my little school podcast, from our small village outside Chicago.

One more book to go!  Thank you for listening.

-Mrs M

PS: have a safe and happy Halloween 2020.
