Hogwarts Reading Challenge 2010

I discovered this challenge only today but even though it's almost ending I decided to participate because I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter !
This challenge is hosted at Worth Reading It and started at 8March 2010, ending at 13 December 2010.
Here are the rules of the Challenge that I took from Worth Reading It.
"In the 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 a Harry Potter book earns you 25 house points.
You must read at least 5 books (audio books counts) before you are enter in to the drawing. At the end of the Challenge one person will win a $25 Amazon Gift Card and one house will win the House Cup (purely a pride thing). "

Before entering the challenge you have to take a quiz that will place you into a House! I took it and I'm Ravenclaw.

Remember any book that you read that you can't make fit under a class can always go under Muggle Studies.
