    Lumos!

    A friend sent me copy of the first one waaaaaaaaay back when only the first three were out.  I was an addict from page 1.  A friend of mine said she quit reading after the fourth, because "It's getting too dark, too heavy."  I looked at her as if she was nuts...

    To The Well Organised Mind

    Harry Potter is what made my childhood, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Luna and Dean Thomas were my friends ( I had real life friends as well) and their adventures made me smile, laugh, cry, sit up in shock and read on in anticipation. I will never be embarrassed to admit that Harry...

    I've Read All 7

    I've read all seven of them and enjoyed also with my kids. There are a few discrepancies, however, like the death of Harry's parents in Book 3, 4 & 7. There's also lack of use of the two-way mirror in Book 5. But most bizarre of them is the time reversal in Book 3 where a death...

    I have read all seven Harry Potter Books. To say that I am a Harry Potter fan would be an understatment. I am a die hard Potter fan. I have read the books more than once, even more than twice. I Love the Harry Potter books, and the Movies. They are all amazing, and anytime that I...

    My Childhood And Beyond

    I think I've followed Harry's tale since it first came out. I was also 11 then. Eventually, I grew up and the story matured as well. I cried when Harry lost friends and loved ones; I cheered Harry and his friends through their victories. And when I finished the last page of the...

    Satisfying

    What?  I can't believe it.  Only five of us have said we've "Read All 7 Harry Potter Books".  Also, as a grammar freak, you're supposed to spell out all words under 10.  So it should read, "I Have Read All Seven Harry Potter Books". ...

    Funny Thing Though

    ...is that when I read the first HP novel, I had an super cool extra bonus of being eleven years old - the exact same age Harry was. I can't even begin to describe how cool I thought it was, to read about a hero who was my age. :D And when I first got to read the second novel, I...

    Comfort

    These books were sort of an escape for me. They brought a sense of comfort and were entirely too easy to just get lost in. I read most of them several times. I really almost cried when dumbledore died. I was staying in atlanta for a week hanging out with my brother and it ruined...

    Harry Potter Rant- I've read all the books

    countless number of times, same goes for watching the movies. And every time I watch a Harry Potter movie, I walk away feeling so frustrated!! It's such a sham. It's a hollow, hollow version of the book. I cannot stand David Yates, he ruined the series for me. Some of the things...

    I began to read Harry Potter when my oldest was 7. I would read them to her because they were the "in" books and she couldn't read that well yet. So I got very caught up in them and was just as excited as she was when each book was due out. I went a few times at midnight to get...
