day 14: science fiction/fantasy

When I first read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, I was transported, not only to Hogwart's, but also to my own childhood when most of my reading was about places I had never seen or imagined and contained descriptive details that made me feel like I could smell, taste and touch my surroundings. J.K. Rowling has given the world a gift with this magical series of books, filled with marvelous characters, fantastic adventure, and a good old fashioned battle of good vs. evil. (I pictured The Prisoner of Azkaban rather than The Sorceror's Stone because I always just gravitate to that story out of them all.)
