I supposed to post this yesterday, but as usual work gets in the way. So regarding this topic, I want to talk about how Harry Potter literally change my life.
I was introduced by Harry Potter when I was 6 year old. My father bought me Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and I remembered I said to my father that I don’t like reading books (I’m a manga addict back then so the only book I read was manga). But my father was so determined he bought the DVD so I can watch it first.
One afternoon we watched it together with my entire family. And I still remember that feeling, I stare at the screen trying so hard not to blink because I was afraid that I would miss any magical moments, I was so mesmerized and captivated by the wizarding world ever since.
I read the book as soon as we finished the movie and that was my first book, since then I keep asking for more. I read any books I could find in my house, in school library, and public library. I was just so eager to see the new worlds through books.
I was this awkward child who had trouble to make friends (still am) and ever since I found books I’m just done trying so hard to fit in, I was just sit there and read my books. One time I brought my Harry Potter books to school and my friends was like “wow, you read the books?” and “you like Harry Potter too?” then just like that, I found my people!
Maybe that’s why Harry Potter and The Sorcere’s Stone book matter the most to me because the memories I had with this book was too precious!
What made you read Harry Potter in the first place? What was your precious moments with Harry Potter?
