To encourage reading like any Ravenclaw would certainly approve of, Harry Potter Author J.K. Rowling dropped licensing fees for teachers so they can read Harry Potter books online to students, her recent Tweet states.

“Teachers anywhere in the world are permitted to post videos of themselves reading from Harry Potter books 1-7 onto schools’ secure networks or closed educational platforms until the end of the school year,” according to jkrowling.com.

The website states that dropping licensing fees is the "first of many" initiatives to bring Harry Potter into homes around the world during this time — but we'll have to wait to find out exactly what those initiatives are. 

If you're like us, though, you're using some of that extra free time to snuggle up with a pot of coffee and re-read the series for the twice, third, fourth (or seventh) time. 

Alohomora Academia!
