Monday Madness: Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone
Monday Madness is a new bookish meme hosted by Booklover's Teaparty and Bookfever.
You know that feeling when you feel like you are gonna go mad if you do not get a certain book right away, when you are obsessed and all you want is that one book and you will be happy? That is what Monday Madness is about. All those books you that drive you mad.
Pick a book. Talk about it- why do you want it? What has drawn you to it? Why is it making you mad with want for it?
Harry Potter and the sorcerer's stone by J. K Rowling
Harry Potter thinks he is an ordinary boy. He lives with his Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and cousin Dudley, who are mean to him and make him sleep in a cupboard under the stairs. (Dudley, however, has two bedrooms, one to sleep in and one for all his toys and games.) Then Harry starts receiving mysterious letters and his life is changed forever. He is whisked away by a beetle-eyed giant of a man and enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The reason: Harry Potter is a wizard! The first book in the "Harry Potter" series makes the perfect introduction to the world of Hogwarts.
So I'm one of those crazy people who have not read Harry Potter nor do I own the books. A while back though I borrowed the first book from my friend and while I still haven't finished due to a reading slump I can say from what I have read that I do want to continue reading them and that also means, getting the books myself.
