I'm reading my favorite series once again for the new year, and the first book is like greeting an old friend. I'd forgotten details, but love her just the same. I love seeing Harry, Ron and Hermione become friends and wizards. I love that this series is as much about Ron and Hermione as it is about Harry going through his first year at Hogwarts. And what I love most of all is journeying once again through the vibrant world JK Rowling gave us in the seven books of the series. On to book two!
