Fans of the Boy Who Lived are leaving notes about what the Harry Potter books meant to them for the next generation of readers to find.

After Potter hub Mugglenet.com started the movement, using the hashtag #PotterItForward, people began sneaking the notes into library books and donated books and then sharing pictures of them on social media.

Some hid the notes in the first chapter of the book, while others opted to sneak theirs into the last chapter of the final book.
