The things Harry Potter taught me

Harry Potter, I am pretty sure that the proportion of people who have been teens in the late 1990s- early 2000s and haven’t read these amazing seven books; is a very small proportion. Personally they are one of my absolute favourites. Perhaps because they were the first books I owned apart from Enid Blyton. Recently I came across a post saying James Sirius Potter, Harry’s first born (and yes I refer to them as real people, deal with it) starts Hogwarts this year, as a Gryffindor! I cheered out loud at that and decided to re-read some of the books again. That of course made me want to write this blog.

I know I am not the first one to write such a post, but really wanted to share why Harry Potter is important to me, so please bear with me. Of course, if any one wants to share their own favourites from this series, or any book for that matter, please drop a comment, would love to hear it.
