Pottermania Redux

The film version of another Harry Potter book opens in this week. Like its predecessors, the movie’s debut will spawn another wave of high demand at all public libraries for the books of J.K. Rowling’s that the Potter films are based upon. If you’re one of the millions of adult readers who’ve enjoyed reading one or more Potter books – you might, after seeing the latest movie and re-reading the book – consider examining a very extensive list of Potter “readalikes” compiled last summer. The list is annotated and contains links to similar lists compiled by numerous public libraries.

Or try any of these links to additional annotated lists – many of them specifically tailored to adult (vs. teenage) readers – compiled by librarians at other U.S. libraries:

The books recommended on these lists – as well as all the books in Rowling’s Potter series – are available at the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library. But be warned: unless you act quickly by placing Holds on the titles that interest you, you may have to wait for them until the latest wave of Pottermania has passed.
