One of my favorite things about JK Rowling's writing is that it is easily for anyone of any age. It's a story that may quite possibly become counted among the Classics one day. It's a story that may one day place Harry, Ron and Hermione alongside characters like Alice, Bilbo, Charlie, Charlotte and Oliver. I think one of the things that makes it a story that is loved by so many is that it's full of adventure, relationships, character and lessons. It's a story that pretty much anyone can find something within to connect to, to identify with. JK Rowling spent a few hours on a train just scratching out some rough ideas about a boy with a scar and it became a story that children and adults alike, across the world, came to love and cherish. It is a story that I love.
I have a feeling that this won't be the only re-read of Harry Potter that I do in my lifetime. In fact, it's probably just the first of countless times that I will re-read it. And I have a feeling that I will grow to love it more and more each time. So, here's to re-reading books that are worth more than just one read through. Here's to re-reading books that have become cherished stories. Here's to re-reading books that will one day be considered classics. Here's to Harry Potter.
