The Wizarding World

US school bans 'Harry Potter' series, stating risk of 'conjuring ...
Have you gotten your feet wet with Harry Potter?  Most folks have an opinion about the boy wizard.  Mine?  Well, I didn't much care for the first book.  I felt that it got off to a slow start, and I struggled with the believability of it all (well, duh!  it's fantasy).  Anyway, so many of my students and friends loved the series I thought I would at least start the second book.

I was hooked!  I flew through the remaining six books.  I loved the stories, the characters (especially Dobby), the conflicts.  Brilliant!

If you would like to get started, you could try a free listen at Audible.  I also found a copy of the book online; you might search for that.  Then, click on over to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter where you can be sorted into a house (I was sorted into Slytherin), get your magic wand (mine is made of maple wood with a dragon heartstring core), and find your Patronus (apparently I have a Bassett Hound Patronus).
