My mom used to be into that kind of stuff before she became a Christian, and she really tries to keep my brothers and me out of that kind of stuff. And personally, I have a small problem with people who summon spirits; though so far nothing particularly like that has come up in HP.

About the double post: hate those. :(

From what little I understand of real-life type witchcraft stuff, it's not very much like what's in HP, so I think you should be okay.

Yes, if you know anything of paganism and Wicca, which are both real religions, they're nowhere near the kind of witchcraft you're probably thinking of. "Magic" in those religions is only used for benign purposes, especially physical and spiritual healing.

What's your mom afraid of, that she tries to keep you away from it?

It's more of a personal and religious thing. She doesn't want me getting tempted into trying it because of what could happen.

I'm think I know, but I'm not sure I can quite put it into words. I hate it when I can't explain things. It's so annoying. :(

I am reading :
The name of this book is secret

It is really good so far!
Awesome quotes:

"Fear is not evil, it tells you what your weakness is. Once you know your weakness you can become stronger as well as kinder." -Gildarts Clive, from the anime Fairy Tail.

"Awww," Minho said, "That's almost as sweet as that time she slammed the end of a spear into your shuck face." -Minho, from Death Cure.

Will: "But I thought..."
Gilan: "Never say that in front of Halt. He'll simply reply, 'You're an apprentice. You're not ready to think,' or 'If you thought about it, you wouldn't ask'." -The Ranger's Apprentice Book 1, The Ruins of Gorlan.

If asked in class what the Avada Kedavra curse does, yelling "It does DEATH!" may be correct but is not the manner in which one should answer.

I started reading the H.I.V.E. series by Mark Walden, since the event that I met Eoin Colfer at was at a library and they had them there.

I'm reading Ranger's Apprentice Book 8: The Kings of Clonmel by John Flanagan. Then, once my brother's done with it, I'll be reading School's Out--Forever by James Patterson.
