Harry Potter, anyone?

Dude, the clock is ticking. It's Harry Potter crunch time!

  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Book 5) movie will be released on Wednesday, July 11th
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7) will be released on Saturday, July 21st

So while I was at home on vacation, I started re-reading Book 5. I'm pretty sure I had read it when it first came out, but so far I am 200 pages in (the book is over 800 pages - but with nice, large and spaced out text - heehee!) and it's all new to me. I really want to finish it before the movie comes out. Speaking of which, I'm really worried that none of my friends are into Harry Potter and that I'm going to struggle to find someone to see this with me. I don't want to go alone! I mean, sure, I've seen a handful of artsy, indy flicks by myself, but I don't want to have to see a blockbuster alone! So if you're interested ... let me know!

So after Book 5, there is Book 6 - I think it's something called the Half-Blood Prince or something like that. Now this I know I haven't read yet even though I bought it when it first came out. And even if I had read it, I'm sure I would have to re-read it again. So I want to do that before Book 7 (the final one!) comes out because there are already rumors about how the whole thing ends and I don't want the story to be spoiled.

I think this is doable... but just curious - Are any of my peers still into this?

I just watch the movies. And I'm going to stop answering your questions unless you acknowledge my excellent commenting.
