Very interesting. Especially pointing out to Christians tht reading HP is no different than reading other fantasy books.

I can't wait to read them!Avatar Imagemolly43 says: You're welcome @theotherone. I've also just read End of an Era by Kelsey Purcell. She had been through a lot and I’m glad you had HP by your side to help you. I hope she will try the HP audio tapes from the beginning. I feel positive tht someone will redo HP. I just hope they pick as great actors and actresses as they did this time. Avatar Imagemolly43 says: Just read 'Reading Became Our Magic’ By Destyne. It was great how HP was there for her daugh when she needed help. It was also interesting how she was not a reader until she came across HPSS. The essay was well written and interesting.
