Like any diehard fan/collector, I ended up with all four of the special 20th Annoversary Editions of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. (No? Just me? ahahahahaha *sobs*)
Harry Potter means so much to me, and these special House editions are gorgeous.
It would take several months and a two-page thesis to describe what the Harry Potter series means to me; what Jo has given me. In lieu of that, I’m going to make this short and sweet:
To honor the 20th anniversary of this introductory book, I’m listing the top five things that Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone taught me.
- There are some things you can’t share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them.
- The magic can never be stamped out of you.
- Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.
- It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.
- Love is powerful, and leaves a mark.
