    J.K. Rowling got me into reading. I think that is true for most people. I also think that older readers have a tendency to dismiss her as an author for children, especially if they abandoned her novels once they entered their adult years.

    I urge those people to go back and revisit Harry Potter. Those novels are just as engaging for adults as they are for children. Rowling succeeds because her world is so rich, and her characters are so compelling.

    She isn’t a one-hit-wonder either. I know people who continuously suggest that she captured lightning in a bottle with Harry Potter, but then she lost relevance once that series ended. I would urge those people to read Cormoran Strike. Rowling isn’t a children’s author. She doesn’t write for adults either. Rowling writes for everyone.

    J.K. Rowling, a legend in her own time, writing the Harry Potter series. I read each of these out loud to my girls when they were younger. Her ability to captivate adults as well as children is a talent. My husband and I couldn’t wait to hear about the next adventure of Harry Potter with each chapter that we read. We cherish all the books she’s published – illustrated as well as originals of Harry Potter.
