Not that any of you probably noticed, but I have scarcely been at the computer these last two weeks. I have been reading all seven of the Harry Potter books, I finished the last one at 4:00 a.m. this morning (yes, it was that
good!) I have been wanting to see what all the fuss was about for years, but I am glad I waited because I would of went crazy waiting over a year between books! Like I said, my motivation was primarily to see what all the fuss was about as most of my favorite bloggers have read the series (and I am so grateful to all of them for not letting any spoilers slip). Seems that people either loved the books, or they think Harry Potter is the devil in disguise (ironically, usually those same people like LOTR) and I wanted to see for myself.
I did not expect to enjoy them so much! I do not remember caring about fictional characters so much since I read the Anne of Green Gables series way back in Jr. High. And I guess this shows how old I'm getting, but the character I identified the most with was Mrs. Weasly! :D Wouldn't it be nice to be able to send a howler once in awhile?
I can't think of a better way to end my summer then having two weeks of such enjoyable reading. I think I have mentioned before that sometimes I wish you could erase books from your brain just so you could read them again for the first time.
I finished just in time to get everything ready for school tomorrow. Yup, we're starting school tomorrow.
