I openly admit to being a fan of Harry Potter. In fact, I am a proud Ravenclaw. At times, people laugh and will say that my interest in this story is childish – I’d like to challenge that close minded view. I love this series not long because I enjoyed the story, the cleverness of the author.. I love this series because it makes people read. It encourages those who have never had interest in opening a book.. to read.. and not stop at one novel. I have known adults who hadn’t made it through a single novel get hooked by this ‘childish’ tale. To be able to read and immerse yourself in a work of fiction is such a privilege. It’s like just like.. magic!
