The Girl Who Read

Hey there blogging world!!! I’m here to tell you something about me that not many people know. I’m a HUGE Harry Potter fan!!!! Okay…almost everyone knows that about me, but that’s because I just love to share my Harry Potter knowledge and love for the books with everyone I meet.

Now, being a fan of the Harry Potter series is a full time job. It involves attending the midnight premieres of the movies, knowing every spell and magical creature, and reading each book of the series about 5 times each. If I were to be a member of a house at Hogwarts, I would most definitely be in Hufflepuff. They are known for their loyalty, friendly nature, and work ethic. I would also most definitely play on the Quidditch team, which is the most popular Wizard sport involving flying around on broomsticks. I would play the position of Chaser because I think I would be excellent at scoring goals.

Now, there is a certain hierarchy of Harry Potter readers on the team. Up at the top in the category of “Forever Loyal/Super Dedicated/Magic-Lovers Club” there is only Erica and myself. This highest level is only reserved for the most obsessive and most dedicated fans. We have read the entire series about 12 times total between the two of us. We often quote our favorite parts of the books and the movies as well as cast imaginary spells in times of need. My personal favorite spell is “Accio” (which allows you to summon any object to you) and Erica’s favorite spell is the Apparition spell (which allows you to transport yourself to any place in the world). My favorite potion would have to be Veritaserum (which forces the drinker to tell the truth) and Erica’s would be Felix Felicis (which makes the drinker extraordinarily lucky in everything that they do).

The second level includes the regular readers of Harry Potter who are consistent and love the books but are not at the completely obsessive level as Erica and I. The members of this level include Mikaela, Sej, Tess, Amber, and Toni.

The next level includes the soon-to-be Harry Potter readers, who the rest of us are attempting to convert. This is where the rest of our teammates lie, and our attempts to convince them to read the series continue everyday. The one who resists our attempts the most is Jos. She adamantly refuses to read any of the books we suggest, but I refuse to quit because no one can resist the lure of JK Rowling’s novels forever.

My challenge to you Stanford fans is to open your hearts to the magical world of Harry Potter because you definitely won’t regret it.

Reading is my passion, and I think everybody should be able to have the feeling of completely submersing themselves in a good book. So I finish this blog with a little phrase from HP: “Mischief Managed.”
