We may not own a Time Turner like Hermione to let us meddle with the past, but Harry Potter fans all over the globe now have a chance to take a sneak peek into the future and connect with new fans that haven’t even begun their 7 year adventure at Hogwarts.
A new campaign — started by the Harry Potter fan-site MuggleNet — came up with a pretty simple yet legendary concept: “go to your nearest library or bookstore, find a copy of Harry Potter and leave a hidden note inside a future reader to discover”.
A simple search of #PotterItForward on Twitter brings up many magical and inspirational notes from Muggles and Wizards alike.
I, myself, participated in the trend and left the note above in a HP book I found at the library in my town. If you can’t read my handwriting, it is as follows:
“Before you begin your experience with Harry Potter Id like to tell you about mine. See, I never planned on reading these books, but I did it as a surprise gift for my girlfriend. Well, that was fitting, since Harry Potter is a love story. No, not one of romance, but of friends and family. And my own redhead (you’ll understand) is my best friend, and I love her very much. Harry Potter is one more thing we share. Now I share it with you.”
If you too are a Harry Potter fanatic, go out there and share your message with those that just about to begin their magical journey. It’ll make it just a little bit more special and they’ll remember you for the rest of their time at Hogwarts.
Especially as the world of Harry Potter expands:
