Follow Friday - Book I want to experience anew

Follow Friday is a feature created by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It's a fun blog hop where you meet other book bloggers and find people to follow.
If you could read a book for the “first time” again, which book would it be? Why?
I'm going to go with the obvious answer, Harry Potter, because it is also the truest answer.  Not only do I want to read these books afresh (why would I do that to myself? Think of all the heartache!) I want to travel back and time and EXPERIENCE them again.  For me, Harry Potter was much more than just a book series.  It was an experience, an online community and a fandom that nothing else will ever compare to.  All the nerdy things, posting on messageboards as characters, basing my online identity off of a magical creature (veela), writing fanfiction, I did them and have no regrets.  I loved that time and I loved how Harry Potter defined my youth and influences who I've become.

Harry Potter is pretty popular today! When I finally sit down to read HP, it actually will be for the very first time :) Aren't I lucky?

Happy Friday!!

I feel the exact same way, which is why I picked Harry Potter too. It was such a big part of my childhood, I'd love to go back and relive the experience all over again. New Linky follower :) My F&F Friday.
