  1. I love that you love Harry Potter :) I feel an instant bond every time people mention their love for Harry Potter. I tried explaining it to my fiance (he's not into HP) and he just kind of looked at me funny. But I think you'll get it :)

    I liked seeing the books you chose for this challenge last year. Can't wait to see what you choose in 2012!
