Mary's Books

I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.

Re-reading, Listening Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré

I love Harry Potter and I love the stories. I will watch the movies whenever they show up on tv and I decided that I wanted to read the story in Spanish (trying to learn the language) and I am trying to knit or crochet and listen to Jim Dale reading the story. He makes the story come alive. I had battled with my girls trying to get them to read the stories and they wouldn't, but whenever we were in the car for long distances, I would play the story with Jim Dale narrating. They finally gave up and read the books and loved them, too. Maybe not as much as I do, but they do enjoy hearing the story. We live about 50 miles from my family and my husband's family and so we often drive 2 hours both ways and this gives us something entertaining. I recommend taking time to listen to these stories as narrated by Jim Dale.
