I’ve gone and done it. I purchased the first book of Harry Potter with the intent of reading it to my children. We recently read the 1939 version of the Wizard of Oz and they enjoyed it so much, we watched the 1930s movie (with Judy Garland). They were so enamored with that, we watched Ender’s Game as well on Monday night.
Through all that, I decided to pick up another book to read to them. Since I’ve deliberately avoided jumping on the bandwagon by reading these “popular” books, Harry Potter has gone unread by me, thus far. I figured, the boys are getting older and it’s time to get moving. I’ll let you know how it goes!
I may start tonight. Thursday nights are pretty calm in my house and tonight we’re having hot dogs and chips for dinner. Quick, easy food to eat while starting a book with them.
