Hogwarts

Girly is now reading Harry Potter to herself. I read her the first 2 books, but I'm really not a very good bedtime reader... half the time I'm coming home from a meeting, or needing a shower before morning, or just too tired to keep my eyes open. I've been bugging her to move beyond Junie B. for months now, and this was what she needed to do it. I think she's read 3 chapters today. Very nice indeed.

Boy is reading Harry #6 (for the second time, first time reading the whole series himself) while Girly is on #3. Now I have no excuse to not finish the series. I myself am only about 1/6 into #3, and can't believe I've shielded myself from most of the secrets. I heard about one, but it wasn't too terribly shocking considering the length of the series and the time it encompasses. Hopefully I finish reading before finding anything else out!

Rach, you need to call in sick for the next week and do nothing but lay in bed with a bowl of swedish fish next to you and read your way through. Book 3 is where it all starts to get "can't put it down good"

You haven't read them all yet? For shame. That's worse than not seeing any of the Sopranos.

And FYI: in Murder on the Orient Express, the all did it, Rosebud is a sled, and Darth Vadar is Luke Skywalker's father.

Which secret did you hear? The one where Harry and Ron start a wizarding boy band? Seriously, you're asking for trouble admitting you haven't read them all, and further talking about how you've avoided the "secrets". Good luck with that!
