(Not the) End of an Era
So today I saw the last Harry Potter film, and I cried, clapped, whooped, cheered and enjoyed every minute of it. I think the only time I didn’t have a hugeeeee grin on my face was when my mouth was all funny shaped from the crying and the trying to breathe. It was great, but it isn’t the end, it never will be. My life would be so much different today if I had never read those books, I wouldn’t be on the career path I am for a start. Although I was always a big reader, it was seeing the power those books had on other children and adults, encouraging them to read and increase their literacy that made me want to be a part of that for the future.
