Breaking my Harry Potter Duck

Book one - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone

The deed is done - I've ordered my first Harry Potter book from Amazon - and it's out for delivery.  

I'm nervous - which is a surprise, 

I've successfully avoided reading Harry Potter for nearly 23 years, since my children Ben and Cherry discovered it and both loved it, devouring every new Harry Potter book released since then (7 in total I'm told).

Yesterday 9th April 2020 I was talking to Cherry via What's App, about stuff - including the new Red Dwarf episode on the telly, and somehow ended up agreeing to read all the Harry Potter books, in exchange for her reading seven books I chose.

I ordered the first Book in the Potter series, and Cherry is presumably settling down to read Jonathan Livingstone Seagull. 

This then is my last 'Potterless' day.  I'll let you know how I get on.


  1. You are going to love it! (And it can be a bonding moment with Cherry)

  2. that’s awesome! Hope you like them
