Harry came to my life at the perfect time. I was a freshman in high school, in a small town where there was never much to do, except get into trouble. One night, a good friend and I decided to see The Scorcer's Stone in the theaters. I did not know much about the movie, or the book. I decided to go along, only because there was not much else to do. During the movie, I was in total awe. Afterwards, I learned more about the books, and the writer and decided then to begin reading the series. To my surprise, the books were more amazing than the movie. That was the time I became OBSESSED with Harry. I would stay home saturday nights and just read. Harry was the reason I began reading books for entertainment. I have always been interested in fantasy, but for Harry, it was more about life. That's what drew me in to the first book. Here's a boy that is out of place in society, and does not have many friends. He feels, and knows he is different, but he is not quite sure why. This was exactly how I felt at the time I began to read theses books. As you know, Harry finds out why he is different, because he is very special and has powers he did not even knew he had. This inspired me to not care about what other people think, and believe in myself. As I read the other books, I turned into a Harry Potter nerd. I love every book, and can not get enough. I also love the movies, and went to three premieres, dressed up as Hermonie Granger. My interest in Harry Potter has led me to meet new friends, and feel a part of something great. I am excited for the seventh book release, but I will definatly be sad when it is all over. Harry was more to me than just a book, or a movie, Harry has changed my life. I am impressed by Rowling's imagination and thank her for her hard work. I am so glad I had a chance to be apart of the Harry Potter experience, and I feel sorry for anyone that had not given Harry a chance.

All I can say is that HP has changed my life. My kids are starting to read the books now and I can't wait to share our experiences from the books together.
Why does it have to end?
JKR Please write another book series.
