I read Lord of the Flies a while ago and loved it, and am rereading it for summer reading, and am finding it even more beautiful and powerfully written than last time. The descriptions are breathtaking (except for the ones that are cringe-worthy, bleh), and the characters are well developed and inte...

I... Love folk music! I like some of the pop from a few years ago but not much and I play classical and jazz which I love! Especially jazz, since I play the bass I have almost no bounderies as long as I play the notes in whichever scale we're using!

*hangs head in shame* I've been around since 2003 and I haven't posted in here! But that just makes my post more interesting I suppose, and more lengthy! Now all of you newbies can be like "I know about you, I read your introduction!" Anywho.... I'm Allanna but just about everyone calls me Lannie......

Well, what seems like years and years ago, my oldest sister came home with what looked like the COOLEST book in the world. I was so jealous because my mother said I was too young to read it.
A few years later when the third book was coming out, she finally gave in to my pleading and let me read the book. I shot through the book like an arrow and soon devoured the others twice as fast as my sisters had.
After I finished, I became bored out of my mind waiting for the others just a glimpse of one of the three that had been published made me wonder what would happen to Harry…
I turned to fan fiction and HP fansites (which is how I found HOL) seeing what other people thought would happen to Harry and his “followers.â€Â￾
I went insane when I read the tiny bits of the Tri-Wizard Tournament as they published and even had a Potter themed party planned that my mother refused to throw.
Finally the night came, the Borders that I went to for the midnight release was jam-packed and extremely uncomfortable, I fell asleep in the car.
The next year was more successful, I invited over a few people who got off from school the next day and we read aloud the first five or so chapters before we went to sleep.
And that, my friends, is how I got into Harry Potter!
