Finding Magic In This World

Too many people read books like Harry Potter and think "I want to be Harry" or any other named character. But you can't "be" anyone other than yourself.

I wish to be who I am, but sometimes I wish there was more visible magic in this world. I do not wish to live in Harry's world, as much as I would never wish to be Harry.

I read fantasy because I am constantly disappointed in my inability to find magic in this world. When I cannot find magic in our world, I start searching for a world of magic instead.
