- Doug 6/16/07: "Last November I went to the Philippines to meet my sponsor child through Save The Children. As a gift I took along 65 books (2 changes of clothes completed my luggage) as a donation to his school library. Included was a complete set of hardcover Harry Potter books (1-6) along with Dr. Suess, Curious George, Laura Ingalls Wilder etc. After finally reaching the end of a boulder strewn road and arriving at Quilling Elementary School I found their library consisted only of mimeographed papers. No books with pictures. Not even a paperback book. Needless to say the books were a great hit. However the biggest surprise was when Paul (my sponsor child) grabbed the complete set of Harry Potter books and while dancing around exclaimed 'I always wanted to read Harry Potter!' I still do not know how Harry Potter was so well known in a remote area on an island in the Philippines. Talk about Harry Potter mania!"
