Harry Potter for National Reading Month

We were thrilled when Laptop Lunches invited us to be part of their month-long celebration for National Reading Month! Of course, John wanted to do Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Again. And again. (He seems to enjoy Harry Potter lunches almost as much as he enjoys the book!)
Every September our library has a huge book sale. This past September I picked up 6 of the Harry Potter books for a couple of dollars total thinking that they would be sitting on John's shelf waiting for him for at least a couple of years. If you've been here a while you may recall that "chapters" have a tendency to freak him out a bit and the Harry Potter books are, well, huge.  In late February he had a week off from school and, typically, that would mean that he wanted to take a week off from reading. Anything. "Reluctant reader" has definitely fit! When I suggested that maybe we could start reading Harry Potter together it was as though an evil curse had been lifted. We've read every night since -- even on weekends and during commercial breaks for March Madness basketball games! There is definitely something magical on the pages of the Harry Potter books -- and I don't just mean the charms and potions that Harry and his friends have been learning at Hogwarts!
