Three down, forty-nine to go. Aww yeah!
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
This is the third time I've read this wonderful book, though I know it shall not be the last. I read it once, many years ago, when I was still married to a Potterhead. I read it again (fewer years ago) while taking an English Survey course at University. This time, though, I intend to finish the series.
That's right. I've never read the entire series. I know, I'm a sinner. SHUN THE NON-BELIEVER! It's ok, I'm going to use this year of reading to finally finish this series that got an entire generation to read.
This is definitely a book that draws the reader in and keeps them reading. Harry and his friends are likable and believable; even Draco Malfoy is a well-written jerkwad of a character. J.K. Rowling does a brilliant job of building the world, explaining only what she must, and allowing the reader's imagination to fill in some of the blanks.
Now, my next decision is this: do I read the series straight through or do I read Harry Potter, then something else, then Harry Potter? I think I'll sleep on it and decide in the morning over tea.
