Obviously, I am a big Harry Potter fan. The complete magic and wondrous world that J.K. Rowling created captured me from the first time I picked the books up. The first book was published in 1997, when I was 17. At the time, I hadn’t even heard of the books, let alone read one. I didn’t pick up the Harry Potter books until 2002, shortly after I got married.
During the first year of our marriage, my husband was deployed several times. Of the 12 months of that first year, he was gone about nine of them. This was shortly after the first film was released, so HP was really entering mainstream at this point, and it finally caught my attention. I’ve always been a huge reader, so I snatched the first two books up at Target and ended up reading them voraciously!
