I started reading the books when I was just entering second grade. I was always an avid reader, but I had never heard of the books. My teacher caught me reading under my desk on several occasions, and offered me the Sorcerers Stone, or Philosiphers Stone, I don't care which name. I fell in love with it instantly, and i went to my teacher in the gifted program I was in, and she was a big fan, too. In my fifth grade year, we had started a Harry Potter gifted class. It was a huge hit. At the end of the year, we had an obstical course to get the Sorcerers Stone. My team was the first to reach the end. Also, at the begining of the year, we took a test, and at the end, she told us what house we were in. I have taken several other tests, and in almost every one, I have been Slytherin. I went to a party for the Deathly Hollows with that class when it came out. I have read every book in the series at least 6 times, and i'm working my way to 7. I've had a lot of fun with it, and I keep finding things i missed. I also look at Mugglenet.com alot, and I'm phsyced about the new Harry Potter Park opening at the end of this year.
