If you are intimidated by the thickness of the Harry Potter Series, do not be scared and try to read the first novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Even though it is obvious that you start with the first book of the series, the first book does not scare you off with the thickness of it compared to the other books that are part of the series. It is only about 300 pages, and if you don’t like the series, again, it’s only about 300 pages! The novel is about a boy named Harry Potter who is an orphan and figured out that he is a wizard on his eleventh birthday. He ventures off into the wizarding world by enrolling in a Wizarding School called Hogwarts with two of his friends that he meets on his way to this world and encounters many events along the way. As like many other Harry Potter readers, I was obsessed with the story and wanted anything that was Harry Potter related. This could be the start of your new obsession! There are many translations of the book, so everyone could enjoy the magicalness of the story! This Harry Potter series was a huge part in many people’s childhoods, so perhaps, this could be a start to having a book that greatly influences your life in a wonderful way.
