Harry Potter: Knitting Magic: The Official Guide to Creating Original Knits Inspired By the Harry Potter Films by Tanis Gray
Not only does this book have lovely patterns, but each has an explanation about which movie it is based on and where you can see what it is based on in the movie with photos from the movie as well. The patterns are well written and there are instructions in the back of the book that explain some of the more difficult bits. This book is a must-have for Harry Potter loving knitters!

The author of this book explains that racism is a system of white power and control over black people. This is different from mere prejudice or discrimination. It is a system that is based on an ideology and we live in this system, therefore, by her definition, all white people are racist, however, she does not define racist as someone who intentionally doesn't like people because of race, but rather as unintentional members of a system of racism. The book is enlightening and brings up some very good points.
