I love to read. I also love to watch movies. I fell in love with both the Harry Potter movies and books. I admit that I didn’t start reading about Harry and his friends at Hogwarts right away. A friend told me that I should read the fist three books. Therefore, I read them all in about one week. Then, I ordered The Goblet of Fire. I loved it. Now, I have all seven books in my book collection. I also love all of the Harry Potter movies. Therefore, I began thinking about why people of all ages love Harry Potter.
