    WTHP???

    So I never really understood why people don't read the classics but they would rather read Harry Potter. I have tried reading the series, only to realize that the story repeats itself every freaking time!  In all the books: Harry runs away from his uncle's house and...

    Not For Me!

        Ok.....so I'll admit to not reading the books. I know of plenty of HP fans that say that the books are the best....well, maybe they are....maybe they're not....but after having to push myself to see the movies (apart from the last one and the soon-to-be-released FINAL one...
