Quidditch Through the Ages

Don’t hate me. As it turns out it’s hard to find a book that starts with Q and this is the only one I’ve read. I promise this post won’t be very long because explaining this isn’t hard to do, so let’s get to it.

QuidditchthroughtheagesThis is a book about the history of Quidditch, the sport favored by many people in the magical world. To explain it better for muggles, it’s at popular as soccer is for most of the world, except in America where they prefer Quodpot, which hasn’t been as well received around the world.  The book details out the beginnings of the game, how it grew and developed over the years and what the current rules are. The book also goes over the history of the flying broom and how it evolved into the racing broom we know today. It goes over the anti-muggle protection charms placed on Quidditch pitches around the world and the Quidditch teams of Britain and Ireland.

Honestly, even if you don’t care about the sport, the books pretty fun to look at. The cover claims it’s property of the Hogwarts Library and inside we see checkout dates and the people who withdrew it from the library. There are drawings throughout the book so the reader gets a better visual of what old Quidditch balls and goals looked like, not to mention older broom models. It’s super short so it didn’t take up much time to read and it was pretty fun delving a little deeper into one of the only sports to ever actually interest me.
