Reading a Harry Potter book earns you 25 house points.

Have fun, good luck and Happy Reading!

  1. Welcome! Thanks for joining the challenge and well as the I Love Reading Challenges
    group. Happy reading!

  2. This sounds fun. Good luck Faith! I love Harry Potter!

  3. Dar, I love this one because you don't have to read any specific books for the challenge. You can read whatever you were planning to read anyway and it'll fit in one of the categories. And I just love Harry Potter so that helps.
