I ran into Harry Potter when a librarian in my local branch stuck a copy 
of _Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone_ into the adult science 
fiction section. I was halfway through it before I woke up to the fact 
that it was a juvenile, but at that point I was captured and could not 
put it down. I went out and bought my own copy and then the seven 
succeeding books.
