My confession. . .

My confession is this: I have NEVER read any of the Harry Potter books. . . until now. I have watched the movies so I know a bit about the story and stuff, but have not had the burning desire to pick up the books and read them. I always thought that it was too comercialized and so I didn't. Last week I went and saw the fifth movie with my little sisters, and I was confused. There was a bunch of new characters and info that they threw out that I got lost and had to ask my sisters a bunch of questions after the movie especially about Tonks and Luna and am sad that those characters weren't more evolved in the movie because they were my favorite. :) Anywho, I decided that I better read the books so I started the first one on Monday and just finished it. I think that is a record for me, I have NEVER finished a book that quick in my life. (slow reader, reading puts me to sleep, I get bored, I can't stand sitting for hours at a time, etc. . . :) I am really exited to read the rest of the books and I figure by the time I am done my three sisters, mom, dad, and cousin will all be done with our copy of the seventh book and I will be able to read all of them through. Well, I have to go start the second book now. . . . talk to you later

It is good to come clean on these sorts of things ;) My HP confession is that I have only read each of the books once, which according to many friends and all of my students, is an outrage. So, I am rereading all the books. I just finished the first one last night, but it doesn't look like I will meet my goal of finishing all of them before the new one comes. The question is whether or not I will have the self control to not read the new one right when it comes!

Yay Harry Potter!!!! I'm a tad obsessed (well, more than a tad) with those books and just finished re-reading the sixth one before the seventh one comes out on Saturday. AND I just re-read the fifth one (for the third time, haha!) before the movie came out. I'm SO sad the books are over, but the movies will continue for a few more years, so that's exciting. :)

HAHA Well welcome to the world of Harry Potter. Im slightly obsessed with Harry and the wizarding world. I am in the process of rereading the series again (for about the 100th time...no exageration) before I open the pages of book 7. Good luck to your reading adventures!
