A dedicated father of two daughters in Seattle, USA has built a life-sized Diagon Alley in his own driveway.
As a lifelong fan of Harry Potter himself, Jonathan Chambers has created a stunning replica of the infamous wizarding shopping street from Harry Potter. He quit his job and starting on this crazy project, spending a few thousand dollars on construction. By November 2nd they had accumulated 3000 visitors- and have raised over $500 so far. The money raised will go towards creating a two-story Gringotts Bank playhouse, with the remaining money going to Pancreatic Cancer Research.
Chambers even received a retweet from J.K. Rowling herself!
The family-built Diagon Alley is open to the public throughout the new year, and next April (2018) the playhouse structure of Gringotts will be auctioned off at Whittier PTA Auction.
In early December the Chambers family will be holding an event at Diagon Alley so fingers crossed their Gringotts will be ready by then!

There are a handful of works that do a particularly good job at inspiring readers to follow the journeys laid out among the pages — particularly travel novels. Iconic authors like Jack Kerouac, John Steinbeck, Tom Wolfe and many others used writing as a way to document their adventures on the open road, and in some ways, seek out answers to life’s greatest questions.

Some people have decided that bookshelves are so last century and have been attempting some daring and kooky shelving options. Books can now be dangled, strung up, float on invisible shelves, be shoved in some foam padding, or displayed like an arty picture. Anything constitutes a shelf now: pipes, crates, a knife block- the ultimate recycling.
Check out some of the ridiculous idea below and see if you fancy adopting one of these shelving ideas!
