Reading

What I Read: January 2021

I reread the first four Harry Potter books, reading my sister’s illustrated copies. I’m going to wait to purchase my own set once they’ve all come out. These editions are amazing. They definitely give you a strong sense of place and atmosphere.

I read The Shadow of the Wind. This did NOT give me a strong sense of place in the way I wanted. It was very atmospheric though. I won’t be continuing with the series. The writing is excellent comparably, but I just can’t justify the content, in every sensitive area it felt gratuitous.

I’ve decided that I needed to finish at least one book for every Harry Potter book I read. I think perhaps, I need to do that with any rereads, and maybe bump it up to 2 or 3 books for every reread. Maybe once I get my hands on more new relaxing reads (which may have to be once I get a Kindle), I can increase that.

      Yes, I think you’d love them, they just have a wonderful world, some much more detailed and personable than the movies. Do you know about the Marauder generation, I’ve fallen down that fan art on Pinterest (actually HP fan art, the Maraudgers, HP’s generation, and his kids generation is all pretty fun).
