Day 21 – My Favorite Author(s)

30 Days Book Challenge –Β Day 21 Β – My Favorite Author(s)

Enid Blyton
Because she made my childhood beautiful. I could go on and on about the books I read. But sadly, I don’t remember half of them.

I enjoyed. Yes, a lot.
A LOT.
So much that, I had begun to write a book about 5 Brownies named Hy, My, By, Fy, Dy.
Um… dont know what happened to them πŸ˜›
J. K. Rowling
How can ‘My favorite author’ not comprise her. It is as though, Enid Blyton realized that I was too grown up for her books and handed me over to JKR. That must be it. Though, I don’t believe that anyone would be too old for books. I still read teenage books. πŸ™‚

I heard about Harry Potter when the 1st movie was released. My dad asked me,
“Do you want to watch Harry Potter?”
“No.”, I never watched English movies then. They never interested me.
“It is good I hear.”
“It’s alright. I really don’t want to.”
Kids my age, many of them had watched it. I thought it must be a story about a Pot maker walaΒ Potter. Why would I want to watch stories about pot making!?
Later, I saw my classmates reading the book. They were discussing animatedly about it. I observed them for a couple of days and the words ‘Magic’, ‘School’, ‘Witch’, ‘Wizard’ etc kept popping up. Finally, I picked up the book from the library, to never stop. πŸ˜€
It has been 12 years since I got the letter to Hogwarts. I remain loyal. πŸ˜€

    Enid blyton was fav during childhood. And about jk rowlings i would say she was rejected by so many publishers before harry potter . but the way she took that rejected and believed in her writing so much that now millions of copies of her book is sold ..

      Oh yes. That was impressive. Her book was published after a publisher’s grandchild read it and asked for more of it. πŸ™‚

      Yaay another reader of Harry Potter. πŸ˜› I feel all who have read HP are like family (except for the haters. They are as good as muggles) πŸ˜€

        anything magical always awes me… and one gets lost in the world of the make believe….
        I dont know your reading tastes, but if you are interested in spiritual / tantric stuff, read the 3 books on Aghora…. It is inspiring…

    I need to come up with such a list too πŸ™‚
    Btw, the same thing happened to me – the first time I heard, I thought he was a porter (especially when hearing about a train going to a school :D)

      Then why don’t you also join the 30 day challenge? πŸ˜‰
      Hahaha so I take it that it is either normal to assume things about a title or that we both belong to some weird club πŸ˜›

        The problem about challenges is that I am never sure about them πŸ˜€
        It should be about the weirdness, I would say πŸ˜›

        1. Ranju

          I wasn’t either. I began a challenge earlier and stopped halfway. This is the first one that took me this far. Chumma start & see. You can as well stop if you cant. πŸ˜‰

            I can take a one day challenge – in that case, I shall be more confident πŸ˜€

    Enid Blyton made our childhoods beautiful. Fairies, little stories, the green gardens and the fruit laden trees – your post brought some wonderful memories back. Thank you!! πŸ™‚
