Q: If you could read a book for the “first time” again, which book would it be? Why?
A: In middle school Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was my favorite book, and was recommended to me by my uncle. I was very resistant to this recommendation, not to be disrespectful but because I wasn’t buying into all the hype. I can’t remember what changed my mind, but it was the beginning of a lifelong friendship. I wish I could go back and read The Sorcerer’s Stone for the first time again and not start out as resistant, setting into the Harry-hype from the start. There is also nothing more magical than entering the doors of Hogwarts for the first time.
