I love reading more than just about any other hobby in the world. When I was little, I would sneak a flashlight and book under my covers when I was supposed to be sleeping and read for hours. However, since becoming a mom, much of my reading time has been spent reading aloud to my children. I rarely get the indulgence of reading a book on my own for pleasure and without interruption. The last time I read a book cover to cover in a single day was probably when I lived alone in Korea. So today, I allowed myself the pleasure of slipping back into the wonderful world of Harry Potter.
I bought Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts One and Two awhile ago, but had not yet picked it up to read. I realized it would be the perfect all-in-one day book because it was a series I loved already, and I find play scripts to be quite easy for me to read (theater geek). I was delighted! It was like reconnecting with old friends and with my younger self (and discovering new friends–Scorpious is a fascinating character). I thoroughly enjoyed the laziness of reading the book while it rained outside.
Lesson learned: sometimes you need to take a break.
