Hogwarts Reading Challenge 2011 - COMPLETE

Yes!  It's back!  I loved this challenge last year and so I'm joining again.  Hosted by Worth Reading It, in Hogwarts Reading Challenge you are a student of the school. You will be sorted into houses. Each book you read must fit in to the subject of one the classes. You do not have to read books that fit all the subjects. Each book equals one point (toward the house cup).  Reading one of the 7 Harry Potter books earns you 25 house points. You can only read this books once during the challenge. 15 points for any other Harry Potter related book such as Tales of Beedle the Bard or A Parent's Guide to Harry Potter, again these books and only be read once during the challenge.   Challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to June 30, 2011.
