Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by JK Rowling
(Started: May 16, 2010; Finished: May 22, 2010)

Harry Potter has never played a sport while flying on a broomstick. He's never worn a Cloak of Invisibility, befriended a giant, or helped hatch a dragon. All Harry knows is a miserable life with the Dursleys, his horrible aunt and uncle, and their abominable son, Dudley. Harry's room is a tiny cupboard under the stairs, and he hasn't had a birthday party in ten years. 
But all that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl messenger: a letter with an invitation to a wonderful place he never dreamed existed. There he finds not only friends, aerial sports, and magic around every corner, but a great destiny that's been waiting for him... if Harry can survive the encounter. (From Goodreads)
Review: 5 stars, My Favorite

The first time I read this book was when I was in third grade. My book looks ancient now, by the way. When I saw this book in the bookstore years ago, I never thought that the series will be this big. I think this is the first book I've read. It was sooooo AWESOME! I love this book because you really have to use your creativity and imagination in order feel the magic in the book. It brings you back to your childhood days. That’s why I really love Harry Potter. I even remember that I wanted to write my own books too because I was inspired by J.K. Rowling. She’s a really great writer and one of my favorites.
