30 Days Book Challenge – Day 21 – My Favorite Author(s)
Because she made my childhood beautiful. I could go on and on about the books I read. But sadly, I don’t remember half of them.
I enjoyed. Yes, a lot.
So much that, I had begun to write a book about 5 Brownies named Hy, My, By, Fy, Dy.
Um… dont know what happened to them 😛
J. K. Rowling
How can ‘My favorite author’ not comprise her. It is as though, Enid Blyton realized that I was too grown up for her books and handed me over to JKR. That must be it. Though, I don’t believe that anyone would be too old for books. I still read teenage books. 🙂
I heard about Harry Potter when the 1st movie was released. My dad asked me,
“Do you want to watch Harry Potter?”
“No.”, I never watched English movies then. They never interested me.
“It is good I hear.”
“It’s alright. I really don’t want to.”
Kids my age, many of them had watched it. I thought it must be a story about a Pot maker wala Potter. Why would I want to watch stories about pot making!?
Later, I saw my classmates reading the book. They were discussing animatedly about it. I observed them for a couple of days and the words ‘Magic’, ‘School’, ‘Witch’, ‘Wizard’ etc kept popping up. Finally, I picked up the book from the library, to never stop. 😀
It has been 12 years since I got the letter to Hogwarts. I remain loyal. 😀
