Reading “Harry Potter” for the first time… as an adult (Part 1/7)

Back in July 2016, my family and I went on vacation to Universal Orlando® Resort. The magic of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter was completely lost on our muggle family who never read the books and saw maybe one or two of the movies. After returning to the real world, and describing the experience to my co-workers, they quickly discovered that I hadn’t ever read the books. I think they may’ve been tipped when I said “there was some castle”. Astounded, my coworkers encouraged me to read through this iconic series.

So I embarked on this exciting adventure, starting with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and documenting my reactions using the hashtag #JimReadsHarryPotter. Below are my tweets from the first book:
