Bloomsbury Launches Quest to Find the World’s Favorite Spell in Honor of Harry Potter Book Night!

After last year’s success, 2016’s Harry Potter Book Night, an event organized by the British publisher of the Harry Potter novels, Bloomsbury, will soon be upon us! In honor of the occasion, the publisher is launching a global search for the world’s favorite Harry Potter spell!

Starting today, January 21, users can vote for their favorite spell. The poll will be open until February 2, and the results announced February 4! The Bloomsbury poll allows readers to vote for 1 of 29 of the most popular spells from the books – including the Disarming Charm, the Memory Charm, and Full Body-Bind Curse – or write in their own favorite if it doesn’t appear on the list.

From the Press Release:

As part of the celebrations for Harry Potter Book Night: A Night of Spells, Bloomsbury Children’s Books is launching the first official global search to find the world’s favourite spell from the Harry Potter books.
