with all the hype around Rowling's Harry Potter books, i never bothered reading them... i saw the first movie, thought it was cool, saw the second movie, liked that one alot too... so i bought them on DVD. then i saw the 3rd movie as soon as it came out. thought it was awesome... then a few weeks ago i saw a box set of the books (all 5 of them) brand new, in the 'adult' covers for cheap. so i bought em. just finished reading the first book The Philosophers Stone... took me all of 2 days to read, but i've gotta say how much i really enjoyed it! its been quite a while that an author has been able to really involve me & make me enjoy a book this way. started reading The Chamber of Secrets this morning. i've conceded that these books are deserving of the hype. even though theyr'e childrens books... comments? anyone hasnt read them before either?
