Dear J.K. Rowling,
When reading a book the first thing you think about is, "Is this going to be a good book?" When you get more engaged you think, "What is going to happen next?" The truth is you never really do know.
I kept thinking is this going to be just another one of those books that gets boring after a couple pages? Well, it wasn't. When I read the book Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, I felt like I was going on a big adventure and never knew what was going to happen next. I felt like I was Harry Potter fighting the three headed dog or walking through the castle under the invisible robe with suspense always creeping up behind me. I also felt like I was getting yelled at by professor Snape. Yet, Harry Potter could go through all that, save the sorcerer's stone, never give up, and he fought even if he knew he might die. If he can go through all that and survive, I certainly can even if I think my life is terrible at times because of one bad day. Every day, every hour, every minute, and every second is precious time. Time is not to think about all the bad things like homework, boys, and chores but to think about all the good things like friendship, love, happiness, and family.
Life and time is precious. It causes us to think about our choices and life styles. While reading Harry Potter I would have a bad day sometimes and I would grab my book and start reading. I thought if anyone else would be having a bad day it would be Harry. I could escape from every thing. I would start reading and he would be getting in trouble, or practically killed. My bad day would just be about friends, family, and annoying sisters. Even if Harry knew he would get in trouble he knew it would be worth it because life is too short to sit around being mad, sad, and depressed, but to think about being happy. Even if I was mad or sad I wouldn't stay mad. I would try to make things better. Most importantly to not give up with out a fight. Even if you think there's no way through it, there's a solution to every problem. When I was reading to escape that's all that really mattered at that time, but now since I have learned what's really important I don't read to escape I read to enjoy, all the choices in life.
People sometimes think that escaping the world would make everything better but it doesn't. Every day, every hour, every minute, every second is precious time, as I said before. Every second we're here on Earth makes us think about our choices in life. We should think about everything in a positive tone. Enjoy what is good and learn lessons from all that is bad. It's our choice on how we spend our life.
