Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Yes, I finally read the final book. It was sad to be done with it, but what a great series of books. If JK Rowling was a friend of mine, however, I would have requested that this last book (Year 7) actually be done in 2 books. It is a HUGE book! And since I do a lot of reading in bed at night, it got to be downright dangerous! If I accidentally would fall asleep while reading, that was a really heavy book to fall on my face! Plus it was just plain heavy to hold while reading in bed. I had just finished reading The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, which was also a HUGE book. I’m lucky to have survived them both without any bruises!

Anyway, I have gone on and on about the Harry Potter series before, so you know how much I have loved the stories. I even convinced both a son-in-law and my daughter-in-law to read them! It is great fun to share great reads with others!

I still need to read 6 and 7 of the series. One of these days.

I have had a similar experience, Sue. I read the first three books when they first came out, but lost interest after that. That was several years ago, now. I have just rekindled my interest and started again with book #1. I can't put it down! How exciting to have a whole series to look forward to!
