The year is 2003. It’s the beginning of July in a small suburb town. A little girl sits in her backyard on a covered swing. The sun sat in a cloudless sky, casting shadowy patterns across the cushion on the swing. She can hear her younger sisters laughing and splashing in the pool that is just a few feet away. But she was not interested in swimming, because her attention was on the book on her lap that she had just gotten yesterday. Her feet brushing against the grass with every motion of the swing. Her eyes eagerly scanning the pages, trying to soak up as much of the story she could. Before her mom told her to put the book down and spend time with her family.

I was bouncing up and down in my seat the whole way there clutching a piece of paper with the picture of the book I wanted that my mom helped me find on the libraries website.

As soon as I got home I ran upstairs and climbed up the ladder to the comfort of my bed on the top bunk. I leaned my back up against the wall, pulled my blankets over my legs, and started on the first chapter. The chapter title of The Boy Who Lived immediately grabbed my attention.

Through reading Harry Potter I learned that reading can actually be fun, and that history is important. After finishing the Harry Potter series I found a love of reading. I did not dread it anymore. I now read every book I could get my hands on. And you know those history books I talked about? Well guess what?! I actually like to read historical based books now . And history and reading actually became my favorite subjects in school! If you would have asked nine-year old Morgan if she would ever like history or reading her answer would have been heck no! My mom now has to tell be to put the books down instead of that I need to read them. I always have a book in my bag that I carry around with me everywhere I go just in case I get a chance to read.
