I was in detention one day in seventh grade, and i always did my school work so my teach gave me the first Harry Potter! That started the downward spiral to the Harry Potter addiction, dont get me wrong, i love it.
That was the first book i have read front to back. two days later i checked out the next two, one month later, the fourth one came out.
and that was it. i read all kinds of books now, in the years that followed i have read more and more. So thank you Harry Potter,
Over last summer I had nothing to read, so my aunt gave me her copies of the Harry Potter Series. I didn't want to make her feel bad by turning down her gift so I started to read them even though at the time I though I wouldn't like them ( I was obviously wrong). By the time the summer had end I had read all of the books and had Harry potter on the brain all the time! So yeah It's all thanks to me aunt!
I started in 2007 during my third grade Harry Potter themed Library Week.
I thought that our integration to it was going to be graded, and i panicked that i might not get a good grade if i didn't know about Harry Potter, (I didn't like watching movies) so i just read the book and got absolutely HOOKED to it.
IN the end, it wasn't really graded, but it was totally worth knowing Harry Potter! I read books 1-5 in a week and i still keep on rereading all of them... coz you know, they're just awesome like that ;)
