Booking Through Thursday: Just Wild About Harry

Pin It

Booking Through Thursday

Okay, love him or loathe him, you’d have to live under a rock not to know that J.K. Rowling’s final Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, comes out on Saturday… Are you going to read it?

If so, right away? Or just, you know, eventually, when you get around to it? Are you attending any of the midnight parties?

If you’re not going to read it, why not?

And, for the record… what do you think? Will Harry survive the series? What are you most looking forward to?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

Ok, I'm not a huge Harry Potter fan. I don't hate him. I'm just not that into him. I've seen the movies (on DVD) and they're not bad, but haven't read any of the books. I do agree with Dewey in a post from last week that it's probably the last book in the world that needs the publicity it's been getting. I mean who doesn't know about it?!

I don't have a gripe with Harry. That people go bonkers for a book is impressive, considering all the endless number of TV channels and movies there are for kids. Maybe once the Potter craze is over kids will discover other books. I certainly hope so.

So, no midnight standing in line for me.

As for if the boy wonder will die, well, I hope not. That would just be too sad.

  1. I think kids also read tons other books. The Septimus Book series, the Alex Rider series, ARtemis Fowl series, Charlie Bones series and tons other have huge followings all over the world. I know HP's is bigger but trust me, these series [as well as tons others] also are huge. I know that some of them are being made into movies as we speak.

    It's just that people who don't read much children/YA books don't know about them. I love a lot of YA/children's book so that's how I know. ^__^

    Oh and don't forget Lemony Snicket's series! That was HUGE.

  2. Hi Chris, thanks for stopping by my blog! I haven't read Harry either, but I might...soon. I enjoyed the movies, so perhaps by reading the books version will give me a better picture of the whole story!

    Have a great weekend.

  3. I won't be standing in line either. LOL. I like the movies, but haven't read the book. I may give them a shot once the hype is over.

  4. Mine is pre-ordered, and I'm staying away from the internet til I finish it! I don't want any spoilers.

  5. And how many tvs will go back on once the craze is over? Scary thought. I hope parents and teachers will continue introducing kids to literature of all kinds to continue their interest in reading.

  6. I hope kids are infected with the reading bug. It would be ashame if their love for books declines.

  7. Hello Chris, I share the same thought as you too. I'm not particularly crazy about Harry. He's taking a backseat until all the hype is over...

    Have a good weekend!
