Weekend Reads: Harry Potter Epic Weekend!

It’s late Thursday night as I’m typing this. And by night, I mean around 11:00pm. No, I am not in line somewhere waiting to be admitted in the theater to watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. No, I am not inside a theater somewhere. I am at home, in bed, typing as we speak. I will, however, be seeing Harry fight Voldemort to their deaths tomorrow morning.

I wanted to reread the complete Harry Potter series before tomorrow morning, but as you can see, it is almost impossible to do that. So, I decided to make that my goal this weekend. What perfect way to reminisce than to relive Harry’s first encounter with Voldemort, Harry meeting Hermione and Ron for the first time, or Harry finally realizing his importance in the wizarding world?

For many, J.K. Rowling has meant so much to those who have read the books, who watched the movies, or who has done both. For me personally, I have grown up with him. Yes, I am much older than the books, but Rowling did a fantastic job of bringing me back to a childhood that was simply splendid. Through Harry, I experienced life in such a way that… well, it just means a lot to me.

Like many, Rowling has rekindled the fun in reading for me, allowing me to see what was unimaginable. Like many, Harry Potter has been my friend, letting me believe in the power of love, friendship, and loyalty.

So, dear readers, if you have seen the new movie, are planning to see it, or will decide soon, I urge you to (re)read the books. What better way to relive the adventure than with your own imagination?

My weekend reads is Harry Potter 1-7. Hopefully I’ll be able to read it all this weekend! Yikes.
