Harry Potter: The scent of my childhood

There is a scent to Harry Potter, for me it’s the scent of childhood. I am currently 23 years old and every summer I go back and re-read one of seven Harry Potter books. Why? Because just for a moment I get to feel 12 again. I get to sit in my room with the fan blowing, sunshine creeping through the blinds while I quietly slip into Harry’s world. I’ve been doing this for atleast 10 years now and probably will continue to do so for another 10 years or more. It’s important not to let the little child within us slip away, for those are the moments where we are truly happy, innocent and free.

What is your favorite childhood book and why?
