Being that today is July 31, there are a couple of special birthdays in the literary world to celebrate. I would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to the one and only JK Rowling, who with her fabulous writing style and vivid imagination has created a world in which kids and adults alike can get lost.
I would also like to wish a Happy Birthday to Harry Potter, Rowling's main character, whom with a generation has grown and found that it is ok to get lost in books, and root for the hero, even if he is fictional.
I love these books and am enthralled with Rowling's writing, and I cannot wait for the day that I can introduce my children to this magical world. They have started a bit with the movies, but as we all know, as good as the movies are, they books are that much better, and I can't wait to read them with my kids.
