When I read Harry Potter it feels like you're in Hogwarts in the dormintrees on the quadiich feild even into secret rooms. It's hard to put the book down cause it's really adicting. My mom was going to have only one kid in the family that would never read until I started Harry Potter, now my mom sort of wishes I didn't read so much cause now whenever we are just about do math or something I dissapear then she finds me upstairs in my bed reading harry Potter. Whoever starts reading Harry Potter can never stop reading.
