true confessions

[this just isn't right]
okay, i'm coming clean: i like harry potter. i own all six of the books in the series, and i have read all of them several times. before the release of each succeeding installation, i re-read all of the previous books, to refresh my recollection, and to build my own personal expectations. they get better each time. i have read the first book six times now,
for those who don't care to keep up with such details.
i also enjoy the movies, and have seen them all several times.
so sue me.
a good friend of mine and i went out to a bookstore at midnight to get our books at the last release. i bought a special "day of release" baseball-style cap honoring the release of one of the books. i'll be breaking it out again, in anticipation of the release of the seventh and final book.
there's a movie coming out a week before the book release date.
i look forward to sharing these with my granddaughter as she gets older.
it's good stuff.

i feel better now.

I'm not buying a hat, but I'll pick up the book on the way home from work ... just like I did last time ... and the time before that ...

I LOVE Harry Potter. The new movie is my all time favorite movie. And nobody will lead me into the direction that Harry Potter is a gay ass movie.

it IS good stuff.
i just saw "the order of the phoenix" last night.
as always, good stuff.
very enjoyable, and no one is going to make me feel defensive about it:
this IS entertainment.

Harry Potter is a great series. It's not gay, it's not childish and it kicks ass! The movies are pretty good too, so why would anyone be defensive about being a fan in the first place? Sure, you shouldn't be too geeky about it - but that's true for all books and films.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm reading the seventh book.

So, I just found this forum on Google. And, enjoyably enough, I just finished the last books, rereading all of the others before hand, of course. Wow. Harry Potter truely is the best book series, hands down. and it all started with dear J.K. writing on Napkins. God Bless the fortune she's made. -nods- I wish you all the best.

omg the harry potter books are SOOOO COOL! who would get defensive about being a fan?! i have read the 7th and final book, and J.K.Rowling could not have ended the book better! the movies are good too, but it's a shame they have to leave so much out. for all you hp fans, take a look at this site; i was outraged! :http://images.google.com.au/imgres?imgurl=http://www.exposingsatanism.org/images/witchcraft/head-in-sand-harry-potter.gif&imgrefurl=http://www.exposingsatanism.org/harrypotter.htm&h=500&w=390&sz=15&hl=en&start=19&tbnid=DR_2hjJc-QYzwM:&tbnh=130&tbnw=101&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dharry%2Bpotter%26gbv%3D2%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den

We had three copies of the final book in my house on Saturday, two purchased and one from the library. I was awesome. I won't say any more, I don't want to spoil anything.

I'm just going to pretend I don't know what Daniel is looking at in that picture...

And I agree - Harry Potter rocks! We Harry Potter fans may be considered nerds, but we are the majority, so the Harry Potter haters can just.... I'll allow you to finish the sentence. I'm just saying, I agree.

The Last book was outstanding! I loved how the rumors of the final installment played out and I have to agree that the ending was awesome. Rowling however has amassed a fortune and will not NEED to write another series but I really hope that she does because the Harry Potter series left me wanting more. I think that I will be a Harry Potter fan forever.

I enjoy reading the happy potter books, most recently the, Half Blooded Prince and Deathly Hallows.
More twists in Deathly Hallows, J.K is a fantastic writters. I think i might die at the thought if she never wrote these books.
Harry Potter films are good too, but they miss scenes just as important as the others.
I wish to persuade those that do not watch or read Harry Potter, to do so now :)
Any questions. Email me on cute_boi_2@hotmail.co.uk
