Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling, 309 pages
Orphan Harry Potter lives with his horrendous relatives until one day, he finds out that he's a wizard and.... Let's face it: if you don't know the basic premise of this book by now, you never will and you probably will never read this, no matter how many people tell you how freaking outstanding this series is. This was my gajillionth* time reading this, though the first time reading it out loud to my daughter. I loved sharing one of my favorite books with her, and seeing her reactions to Rowling's storytelling prowess. On to book 2!
