The title instantly grabbed me in the bookstore this evening. I immediately started reading through some of the letters... absolutely adorable stuff here, even better than the annual "letters to santa" I read in my local paper! Will be getting to this soon and passing on!

This was great! Although, I must admit, it took me a long time, I don't think I could have just sat and read through all at once, at times it did become a bit repetitive and tedious. I loved the interviews he did with many of the kids, to shed light on their love of Harry Potter. All in all I would say this is a great book to browse through or keep on a coffee table.

I can't wait to read this. I will get to it as quick as I can and then pass it on to the next person on the list.

Okay, try as I may I cannot seem to get into this book. As much as I hate to do it, I'm giving up. I'll be sending it on to the next person in the book ring as soon as she let's me know where to send it.

Holy cow, this poor bookring has been sitting with me for a long time. After I got it from gillianne, I inadvertently placed it in a box, where it seemed to get lost when we moved. I have located it and the book has now (finally) been shipped to TracyShannon. So sorry about the delay, folks.

This book arrived safe and sound on April 4, 2007. My internet access is sporadic at best right now due to my impending move. I'll let you know what I think as soon as I can. :)

I have Breeze144's address and hope to mail the book out this week.

I never did read the entire book. I would pick it up periodically throughout my travels from Germany through the US visiting family and finally to my new residence in El Paso. However, I couldn't ever "get into" it. To me, the letters somehow seemed like they were written by an adult trying to sound like a child--perhaps because of the book's editing?

I appreciate the opportunity to read the book. Thanks Jare!

Arrived here today! Thanks!

Journal Entry 10 by Breeze144 from Ajax, Ontario Canada on Wednesday, June 20, 2007
I was diappointed with this book. I was really hoping to read some cute letters, some funny letters and some inspiring letters....not just what I see at school everydau. I wasn't really hooked by any the of the letters and the interviews seemed wordy and got boring after a while. I read about half way through and then skimmed.

I have contacted Lauraloo29, will send it along as soon as I hear back.

Arrived today. I don't have a lot of time the next 2 weeks to read, but I'll see what I can do. No worries. I will keep this book moving. :)

I'm not really enjoying this letters. I agree with TracyShannon that it felt an adult wrote the letters. Not to worry. I shall pass the book on next week. Thank you for sharing!

Got this in the mail today. I have a couple books ahead of it, but since I just finished book 7, I'm sure I won't be able to resist!

Journal Entry 14 by HallieK from Austin, Texas USA on Thursday, August 02, 2007
I started reading this one, but couldn't really get into it. The letters are cute, but it was all too much the same for me. Thanks for sharing, though! I've got the next address and it'll go out in the mail tomorrow.
