4 out of 7 ain’t bad

I might be the one person on the planet who hasn’t read all the Harry Potter books.  I’m coming clean here- I only made it to number four, GOBLET OF FIRE and I never saw any of the movies. Whew- that feels good to get out!

But this weekend, I returned to the series with a vengeance…and made a pack with my niece to finish them all before the release of the last film… 

…which I totally cannot do.   I measured the stack of books to be read- no joke; it’s like the height of a toddler! Just the book weight alone intimidates the heck out of me.  I’m reworking the pack to “watching six movies and reading the seventh” so I’ll be up-to-date when I hit that 12:00am showing on the 15th.  Yeah, I’m going and I am wearing the glasses too!
