When did you read these and why did you pick them up in the first place?
I pick these just because they actually have a good story of why I picked them up.
When I was in the second grade, I was reading at a kindergarten level (two years below age level for non-Americans). My parents had me watch Goblet of Fire with them, and I decided I wanted to read the books. The librarian told me they were too hard for me and did not let me check them out (for context, the reading level, if memory serves, for these books is 4th-7th grade reading level). So, I asked for them for Christmas and spent the next year reading them and struggling through them out of spite.
