Friends, Family and many others may wish to disown me when I confess that I have never ever read Harry Potter! Shock Horror I know. As well as historically getting lambasted by good friends for not delving into the realm of Hogwarts, I now have my children saying the same thing as they delve into and devour with great delight the JK Rowling series.
You see I actually have a much bigger problem….. Reading and enjoying the art of a story. Gulp, yes its true, my reading has been overly biased towards Non Fiction, Theology, News, Politics, Ideas, social change and the like…… now this is all good stuff, but aside from a recent (and I have to say delightful) foray into Gilead by Marilynne Robinson and reading the brilliant Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler I have foolishly neglected the beauty of fiction.
The time has come to take the step and bring Harry and all the delights of Hogwarts into my life.
