What makes RJ's Views special?
"Old School Values!" Integrity, honesty, and respect were more than "words" in our house it was "how you conducted yourself "- - period. These traits were commonplace when I was growing up. Now they are referred to as "old school." That's okay by me!
I started this blog with one goal - to read the book (cover to cover) then share my honest opinion. No skimming, skip or speed reading and pay no attention to the names on the cover. In other words, if it's good it's good and if it's not, it's not. That's the kind of reviews we searched for but rarely ever found.
I am happy you stumbled across our lil blog. I hope you will come back and visit with us often.

June 26, 1997 Harry Potter hit the shelves - but not for long.

on release night. Fans flocked to these events, dressed as their
favorite character. The Harry Potter series became a worldwide
phenomenon. Today a first edition of The Sorcerer's Stone could sell
for upwards of 40-50K dollars! (If you are lucky enough to find a fan
willing to sell that is!)
