The most popular book in my library is J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, logging 37,356 LibraryThingers. Yes, I’ve read it … I must have liked it, since we’ve added the other six Harry Potter books as they’ve become available! They’re all hardcover editions.
I read the book when it was published, in 1998. It’s funny, our eldest child was only two then, and we were reading Goodnight Moon and The Big Red Barn to her. Now she and her 10-year-old brother have read each book in the series and are eagerly awaiting the next movie (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, coming in July, I saw on the trailer when we watched Twilight this weekend). They really do grow up so fast! (like my parents’ friends would say to me when I was a kid, and I discreetly rolled my eyes!)
I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone way before I started blogging or keeping a reading journal to record my impressions of a book. Maybe I’ll re-read it one day and put those impressions into a review. Not that I think another review is needed, with 363 already on LibraryThing! … some reviews are just for me
