It's been an honor and a delight to read straight through all seven of the Harry Potter books. It began on in mid-March 2020 and it ends, fittingly I think, on Christmas Day, 2020. I hope listening has brought you as much comfort and joy as reading brought to me, in this very strange and uncertain year. Taking refuge in reading can help you survive and thrive, even in the most difficult days. Never stop reading and listening to stories, whatever your age.
THANK YOU for going on this journey with me. And thank you to JK Rowling for the precious gift of Harry Potter.
