Day 79

I’ve always been an avid consumer of books, devouring pages until my parents (real story) had to ban me from reading. But it wasn’t until I met Harry that my imagination was completely whetted and my appetite become insatiable. It was the summer of ’99, I had just finished Roald Dahl’s ‘The Witches’ and I…
