    This month's book will be:

     

    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling

    Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter Series #1)

    We know many of you have already read this book, but this is a chance for those who haven't yet read it (or those who have only seen the movies) to get caught up in the wonder of the book series.  (Because we all know- the book is ALWAYS better!)

    Book Teaser (credit: Amazon.com): 

    A winner of England's National Book Award, the acclaimed debut novel tells the outrageously funny, fantastic adventure story of Harry Potter, who escapes a hideous foster home thanks to a scholarship to The Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry.
