My mom banned the Harry Potter series from our home when I was a kid. My grandma had told her she had heard it was “devilish and Satanic because of the use of Witchcraft”.

Over the years, I’ve learned just about everything I could imagine about the series without ever being able to read the books, knowing I’ve missed out on a huge chunk of my childhood.

Well, at nearly twenty years old, I just finished the first Harry Potter novel. I love it and I’m crying.
I have a long road to go, and I can’t wait to read through it.
