Today’s Think Write Thursday topic is to tell about a book we wish we could read again for the very first time. It took me all of about two seconds to come up with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – the seventh and last installment of the Harry Potter series (and even better if I could do it over the first two days of a girls beach week like I did back in 2007).
It’s no secret that those books (and the movies) are all-time favorites. I’m grateful I got to experience the story as it evolved. and it’s crazy to think that we once lived in a world where we didn’t know how the story would turn out!
A quick search through the mere-et-filles archives turns up quite a few mentions of Harry Potter – and many of them were Ten on Tuesday posts. Here’s one about the things I love about the books, and this one about D.E.A.R. is a keeper if only for that adorable Charlie photo at the top (almost exactly a year ago!). I even found one from before I read that seventh book – about what I was planning to read on that beach trip (too bad there wasn’t book bingo back then!)
But my favorite post – for reminding me about a wonderful time – is this one, from August, 2011.
Sara and I had a great day together just before she went back to school (her sophomore year at Georgia Tech). We saw the Harry Potter movie, we had lunch … and of course we took a photo. Don’t we look young! (and happy!)
Thank you Kat and Carole for a fun topic and a great excuse to travel down memory lane!
I’m headed off to South Carolina this morning. I do have plans to blog with my iPad… and maybe this time I’ll get the photos right!
