Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

I’ve lost track of the number of times I’ve read this book, in print, on audiobook with Jim Dale as narrator, and also narrated by Stephen Fry. I finally read the illustrated version this time, and it was absolutely delightful. A perfect choice to start off the new year. The illustrations are gorgeous and I picked up new details in the story on this reread that I’ve managed to miss all the times before. It’s funny – I hear the sorting hat in Jim Dale’s voice, but I still read all of Snape’s lines in Alan Rickman’s voice and I probably always will. I was already in my 20s when this book was first written, so I definitely wasn’t the target audience, but I loved it then. I’ve loved every reread, and I do believe I will love it…always.
