Currently I am working on this Day Zero Item:
#22. Read the Harry Potter series (3/7)
Oh, how I hate to admit this. I am really enjoying the Harry Potter series! I can honestly see what all the fuss was about. I never gave these books much thought when they first started coming out because I thought that they were just for kids. Well, they are kids' books but that's not stopping me from enjoying them. However, I'm not sorry that I missed each book coming out and the dressing up and the release parties and everything. Because well.....this way I can totally binge on the books. No sooner do I finish one, I pull up my library account and request the next one. Last time, I requested the next two books so there'd be no waiting, I'd already have the next one in the house. I was really excited to get an email from the library the next day that my book was in. I raced down there at lunchtime....only to find out that #5 came in and I'm waiting on #4. Bummer. I think that Will might be a Harry Potter fan later on too, I started reading a little of the first book aloud to him. I'm a little concerned about continuing though, I think that there are some things in there that might scare him. When he gets a little older, it's something I'd certainly like to re-visit.
I just finished Book #3 and so far it's been my favorite. It felt pivotal really, with the life details of Harry and his family that it revealed. It's also the first book where Harry's a teenager. I can't wait to see what the other books have in store. And believe it or not, I want to see the movies now, too! :)
