Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Ok, ok.  So it took me 20+ years to do it, but I’ve finally read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling.  Yes, I’ve seen all the movies (and loved them!).  Yes, my girlfriend is a full on Harry Potter nerd.  And yes, I’ve even been to the absolutely amazing Warner Brother’s Harry Potter Studio Tour in England.  I just never got around to actually reading the books.  More accurately book.  You have to start somewhere.

All in all it was a fun, easy read.  I will say it was an interesting experience reading this after seeing the movies.  I read all of the dialogue in the voices of the actors and I was able to picture all of the set pieces.  Overall, the movie did a wonderful job of capturing the feel of the book with great casting and set design.  I’m sure I will be moving on the The Chamber of Secrets in the near future.

For those who might be wondering, according to Pottermore.com:
I’m very much a Ravenclaw.
My patronus is a Great Grey Owl.
I have a slightly spring 10 3/4″ wand made of Rowan wood with a Phoenix feather core.
My Ilvermorny House is Thunderbird.
