I've read through old debates on HP from here and the ToO. It's a riot. \:D/

My favorite thing ever is the HP thread on the ToO where you basically say "please don't turn this into a debate on HP" and then it immediately turns into a debate on HP.

I hope your finals were't horrendous.

I mean, it was supposed to be an HP fan thread; if somebody wanted to throw another tantrum about how evil the books supposedly are, they could do it elsewhere. :noway:

Actually, while I no longer think its sinful to read or enjoy books with magic, I still don't have a solid argument to prove wrong those who think it is. :noway:

Such wonderful, imaginative, and insightful books. I should read them again over Christmas break.

I know, they truly are. :)

Are you reading them for the first time? What books have you read so far?

Over Christmas break I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. It was SO GOOD.

Now I've started Chamber of Secrets. ^.^

I am so happy for you Bethany, you're in for quite an emotional journey.

I read The Children of Húrin by J.R.R Tolkien recently, a prequel to Lord of the Rings. It was most definitely exciting, a thrilling story that I wasn't prepared for. I found the metaphors within to be thought provoking, and seriously loved Beleg, a kindly elf in the story. I'm off to read more fantasy now. :D

So I started reading Harry Potter Book 2 *can't remember the name* and I only read like five chapters before it was due back at the library so I never finished it. :P APPARENTLY it wasn't grabbing of my attention enough. :wacky:

This is one of my favorite books of all time. Beleg is so beautiful and pure. He was too good for the world. :cry:

I am officially on Prisoner of Azkaban in the Harry Potter series. It's literally the bee's knees.

So, I finished The Chronicles of Narnia... AMAZING!!!!!! They are the only fantasy/sci-fi books that I liked, besides Tom Swift and A Wrinkle In Time.

Welcome to the cult, Bethany. But in all seriousness, glad you enjoy them! :D
