they are so easy to get into and they are entertaining they are one of the best books you can read, you can see yourself in the hogwarts place and the characters are awesome it is kinda hard to explain just try to read one.

I don't understand the people that stood in line for 3 hours Friday night to get the book that they ordered months before....come on now, after standing in line for that long are you really going to go home at 1AM and read it? It will still be there when the place opens in the morning, you paid for it a long time ago, and all they did was make money on your money. And now you can buy it at places like Sam's Club for a buttload cheaper, do they really think that they are going to sell out of them. They aren't Beanie Babies or concert tickets, tehy'll make more.

I will admit I see kids who can recite the stuff that probably wouldn't read anything else if they had to, it's almost amazing.

The woman who writes them is also interesting in the fact that she was broke and on welfare when she was writing the first book and is now worth $500 mil, shows that any of us can make it big, we jsut need the next off the wall idea.

I have yet to read the book and see the movie. I guess it all depends on your interests in things.

Since were on the topic though, the author of Harry Potter said yesterday that had she known she would have made soo much money off of all that she has done, that she would never have even started it. I think thats a bunch of BS...but she just claims she feels guilty for making soo much. Yet, on the side note shes on to making the next book

She wants you to think she is still in it for the fun of makin people happy with her work of the stories, a lot of money can change a person as well, it is nice to have all that money so you can be well off and have pretty much whatever you want if she didn't want all that money the prices wouldn't be so jacked up as well I do admit though I like the stories and the stories are better than the movies I have yet to see the second one but I do find them entertaining.
