This issue contains the following essays:

End of an Era by Kelsey Purcell. The author describes how fourteen of her nineteen years of life have been influenced by Harry, and how Harry helped her cope with life after traumatic, abusive experiences.

Reading Became our Magic by Destyne. Destyne herself learned to love to read by reading Harry Potter, and passed on this love to her young daughter suffering from Asperger’s syndrome.

I read the first one and it was really great and interesting. She had gone through so much and put everything in such a storybook way. I’m glad HP books had been there and are still there for her.

Just read the second essay on How a Born-Again Christian Became a Harry Potter Fanatic. It had a great analogy. Very interesting. Especially pointing out to Christians tht reading HP is no different than reading other fantasy books.

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.

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.
