Almost 2 decades has passed since the first book in the series was published and instantly considered a huge success. I was never interested in the mania widely known as Pottermania. Don't gasp. I know, I'm part of the minority who haven't read Harry Potter.. yet. People told me it was a series not to be missed. They said its the best thing ever! I said Okay and never bothered. Trust me when I say I have no beef against J K Rowling or Harry Potter. Just that, I thought I was too old to read them.
Recently, something in me changed. I got curious. I wanted to know why the whole world, both kids and adults go totally gaga over J.K.Rowling and the boy who lived. There must be a reason, right? So I caved and impulsively bought all the seven books. I obsessively wanted second hand books for 2 reasons. One obviously for the monetary reasons and the other, I dunno.. just wanted to feel the book which was held and read by some awed fan! Hoping to share the same wonder whilst turning the same pages turned by someone before me.
168 pages in, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone has had me hooked. It's like I'm a child again. I don't regret not reading them till now. I guess, everything happens when it has to happen. For me, reading Harry Potter as an adult was the way it was meant to be.
In other news, today is the second birthday of Absolutely Not Sure! It's a happy day for me.
Also, I just noticed this is my 200th post. A pretty cool coincidence, I must say. :) A huge Thankyou to all my readers and your lovely comments! I remember how excited I was for the First Blogoversery. This year, I have the quiet contentment. :)
I love this corner of mine. It's all mine, where I can be myself today, wear a mask and be somebody else tomorrow. Here, I am BOTH vulnerable and invincible!
