Harry Potter....

I went to the store today and bought myself the newest Harry Potter book. I went to the table, grabbed one and promptly opened it up to the last 5 pages. :)
I now know who lives and who doesn't.
I am content.
We here at Chez Owens were living in the Bible Belt when the first book came out. Being Bible Belt people we hopped onto the "we are boycotting this here thing" wagon. Then it happened. The me that is constantly curious got a little riled up and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. One night when the Capt had taken the kiddos out I rented the first movie. I fell in love with all things Harry Potter and secretly wanted to enroll in Hogwarts. I then took it a step further...I bought the book. Under cover of darkness I read...and read...and peeked out the window in case the "powers that be" caught a whiff of my rebelliousness. I had Harry Potter guilt people and I had it bad. So bad, in fact, that one Sunday in church I stood up and yelled..."I am a Harry Potter fan!!! String me up by my finger nails!! I am bad!!! Help me folks!!!"
As life is bound to do there were other things out there for me to be curious about and have me sneaking all over kingdom come to check out what's what and I forgot about Harry and Ron and Hermoine. Then the new movie came out. I saw the people on TV wearing the costumes and waving wands. I wanted to be in the middle of all that glorious action! I took the kiddos to see the movie. After it was over we went out and bought all the others. We started watching them one by fabulous one. It was movie night every night. We were in popcorn heaven! We bought all the books. Today I braved the crowds and got the very last book. That brings me back to the start of this confession. I have feelings...emotions invested in these people. I didn't want any of them going to the big Azkaban in the sky. I had to peek..just one little peek and then I read who died...IT WAS..............................
You didn't think I'd really tell did ya????!!!!! heeheehee Read the book and tell me what you thought. Did you like the way it ended?? I thought it was heartbreakingly wonderful.
Enjoy!!

Having stopped reading the series at the on-set of giant spiders in book two, I have missed much of the Harry Potter Fabulousness. BUT having said that, I promptly went online and found the most thorough Book 7 spoiler I could get my eyes on. Looks like a great spider free book!!

Free yourself from your guilt! Did you finish the book already?!

I stalled on Book 4, I always have trouble with "fat" books, lol. I have shyed away from the movies because the images of the main characters are wonderful as they are "in my head" and don't associate well with the movie actors.

I got my book in the mail yesterday afternoon and read it straight through. I couldn't believe how much action and detail Rowling put into it. She had me guessing and speculating throughout.
I don't know how great your spoiler was, though, Jen. There're definitely some spiders in there!

Absolutely wonderful! Couldn't have been better. . . . though I did think the epilogue was just a tad bit strange.
