Harry Potter got me into fantasy. It got me into books period. I was like 10 or 11 I was in 5th grade. I went to wal mart one night with my mom and I was looking in the books. I seen a copy of the first Harry Potter book, I had heard about how big it was so I decided to try to read it. I got home and read like 2 chapters right away. But I was a really bad reader. I didn't really understand it fully but I got the main points. I waited a couple days to read it agian, then one of my friends came over. He seen I had it and I told him it was good so far and he should read it. He got it the next day and read it all in like 3 days. I was impressed by that. So I hurried and read mine. I realized I understood it more and more when I read it. I also realized I didn't understand it as good as I could have so I re read it all in like a day. I was actually getting to be a good ready so I read the rest of them. Then I read The Hobbit, because the first LOTR movie was coming out. It was a little bit harder than harry potter, it only took a little longer but I understood it fine. It took me like a week to read. Then I got the other 3 books. I didn't like them at first, but the movie was really good. So I kept with it, but then I got about half way in the two towers, then just quit. I didn't know what was going on or anything. Then the next year in 7th grade I finally picked it back up and read it all. It was really good because I knew how to pay attention better.
