Its not just my hobby, but I learnt a lot of things from all the characters of that book.. I could proudly say that I left my pessimistic attitude behind me for good... I was strong about myself, learned to love myself, learnt to be my best critic so that I wouldn't give another person to point me,,, If people say its just a fictional novel, I wouldn't agree with the "just" part.. Because it taught me things which made me what I am today... I owe J. K. Rowling for this,,, She is the best... My friends and even my husband said this a lot,,, "Why do you go ga-ga about Harry Potter?" Well, when you read it just like some random book, that's what you feel.
Even today, if I am having a rough day, I'll just open some Harry Potter book and open a random chapter that lifts my mood and poof!! I am cheerful one again! That's the "magic"! That's why... Keep calm and read Harry Potter! You won't be sorry!!!! :)
