    I would love to know your thoughts on Harry Potter books (especially since Jamie mentioned that they are reading one now!) I have gone back and forth about letting my boys (13, 11 and 8) read them. They have not asked to read them, but I believe that is just because they have not got bit by the “bug” yet! Because they are all reluctant readers, I am constantly searching for books that will grab their interest (and we do TONS of read-alouds here at our home) and I feel like this series would surely grab their interest. However, I have several friends from church who have publicly stated their concerns about the “dangers” of inviting sorcery and this type of book into our homes. I have not read the books myself, so maybe I should start there?!

      I would start there, Shelly (reading the first yourself, I mean). I think it would become clear pretty soon whether they are a fit for your family or not!
