I Solemnly Swear I’m up to no Good…

Can you believe it’s been 20 years since the release of the first Harry Potter book!?!?!

The first book released in England in 1997 when I was in the fourth grade. I discovered the first book the following year when all of my fifth-grade friends were chatting about a ‘cool book.’ Needless to say, it was love at page one.

Has it been that long since I first read the Sorcerer’s Stone?
