I would say the Harry Potter books greatly contributed to the rehabilitation of owls in the popular imagination.

I love this series, a fav by far...

Bingo said...

Oh, course, as a reading teacher in Elementary school at the time of the first hint of Harry, I read the first book and then read it to my class. I must say, like it or not, lots of kids are readers today because of J.K.Rowling. I love the series but still think the first book is my favorite as I liked the innocence and fun of it.OOPS, sorry to go on...obviously a fan!

Bingo said...

Love the sorting hat and especially as I wound up in Gryffindor!What a fun contest and how I wish I had this giveaway just so I could play with decorating my blog about it.

robin_titan said...

Dobby is my absolute favorite Harry Potter character and I was seriously sad when the books where over mostly because of him.

robin_titan said...

According to the personality quiz (tricky questions I wanted to pick more than one on some questions and my favorite color, green wasn't there!) I would be a Ravenglaw :( I wanted to be in Griffindor :(

Angiegirl said...

I am so looking forward to starting the HP series with my son. He's five and I'm thinking right about when he turns six will be a perfect time to start. I took the quiz and I belong in Ravenclaw. Sounds about right to me. :)

celi.a said...

I started the books in 2007, right before the last one came out, so I didn't experience a lot of the long waiting and angst that goes along with being a Potter fan. BUT I am having a hard time waiting for all of the movies! They get better as they go on, and I'm so looking forward to the 6th in a couple of weeks!

Thanks for holding this giveaway!
