… yesterday, June 26th …
I was born.
It was a warm, sunny day.
My dad came home during his lunch break and took my mom out for a picnic. I think it was those peanut butter sandwiches that made me want to come out and join them. Five hours later, I was born.
Alright, so maybe that is not true, but what IS true is that “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” was published in the UK on June 26th, 1997.
Can you imagine that Harry Potter is 22 years old? Going back and reviewing things of the past definitely makes you feel older. I look back to the time when I got the first book of the series as a Christmas gift. I was absolutely hooked.
Usually, I am rather skeptical of books number 2, and definitely weary of books number 3, but Harry Potter surprised me. It was “Goblet of Fire” – book number 4 that was probably my favorite.
