Harry Potter - 20 Years Ago


It's been 20 years since the first Harry Potter book was published!  It seems like yesterday really.  Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone was published in Britain on June 26, 1997.  Since then, it has sold more than 450 million copies worldwide and has been translated into 79 languages. 
My favorite characters - Harry, Ron and Hermoine.
Although I have all the books, I have never finished reading the whole series.  Probably considered a sin by some but just haven't gotten back into it - 20 years - well, other things have happened since then.  But maybe I'll give it a go.
