Who doesn't know the famous Harry Potter? 
Who hasn't seen the movies?  
I think I don't need to make a review for this book, right?


Harry Potter has never been the star of a Quidditch team, scoring points while riding a broom far above the ground. He knows no spells, has never helped to hatch a dragon, and has never worn a cloak of invisibility. 
All he knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley—a great big swollen spoiled bully. Harry's room is a tiny closet at the foot of the stairs, and he hasn't had a birthday party in eleven years. 
But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to an incredible place that Harry—and anyone who reads about him—will find unforgettable. For it's there that he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic in everything from classes to meals, but a great destiny that's been waiting for him... if Harry can survive the encounter.

My Story: 

Years and years ago, when I was a kid, my mom went on a trip, and as expected,  I asked her to bring me some gifts. When she came back she had added to the long list a book. That book was called Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.  I was only 11 years old… there were no movies, and Harry Potter was a normal book for children…
J.K. Rowling
I need to admit I wasn't happy with the book at all… I mean, I didn't care about it, I just put it on my bookshelf and the book was there for a long time before I decided to pick it up and start reading. 

Funny thing, right? At first I didn’t want to read it because I didn’t like the synopsis, but when I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. I fell in love with the story, the characters, and the places. I cried, I laughed  and I waited long years to read a good ending… I finished reading the story when I was almost 19 years old…

I grew up with Harry Potter, so these books are part of my life. Now, I'm more than 20, and my books are old and worn from so much reading. But they bring me back a lot of memories.

That's how I met Harry Potter…. 

Why don't you tell me your story?
