Can you believe that?
I always said, "Uh, I don't like MAGIC. I don't like FANTASY. I don't want to read a book about WIZARDS."
So I didn't.
Even though my dad loved the books. Even though my brother loved them. Even though plenty of people I knew were loving the heck out of them, I was just convinced that they weren't for me.
It wasn't until two years ago, when everyone on my online book club peer pressured me into it that I finally gave in and read the series.
Of course I devoured them all within a week, and I was irritated with myself for taking so long to read such an amazing series. Of course, I fell in love with the wizarding world, and now I'm (slowly) going through the books again on audio and really enjoying Jim Dale's narration. Oh, and I'm making my way through the movies.
Did anyone else out there lag so much on reading Harry Potter? Or am I the only loser? And would you guys kill me if I did a Harry Potter post every day this week to pump us up for the movie? I know everyone else is doing it, but I'm excited!
