What do you do on a three-day weekend, when it is HOT outside? Knit!
So why Harry Potter? I would have never gotten into the books without Mom. She tried to give me the first book (She had the first 3), but I didn't get around to read it. So on a road trip, she played the audio-cassette. I had to finish the tape when we got home, then through the next two books. She got the 4th book while I was reading the others. I ended up with my own copies, along with the first two books from the UK. The next two books, Mom and I went to the Midnight release. Sadly, mom never got around to finishing book 6 before she passed. I went to the 7th release by myself.
J.K. really influenced me on young adult books, which I now add when I can to my library.
I'm not sure yet which is the front vs back.
