I saw the new Harry Potter movie today, really only because my dear spoon dragged me to see it, and it was okay. Better than the fifth one, certainly (not hard to do!), but still not terribly good. This is probably not helped by the fact that I haven’t read the book since it came out what, four year ago? and as such I have little to no recollection of most of the book. I spent most of the movie trying my hardest to remember the things that happened in between the movie’s scenes so that I’d have any idea what was going on, but it was mostly futile. So. If you haven’t seen the movie yet and plan to, you should maybe go read the book first.
I was already going to rectify this “not having read a Harry Potter book since 2007” thing with the Summer Lovin’ Challenge, but now I feel it is imperative, if only to get the bad taste of the movie out of my mouth (brain? whatever). So, starting whenever I finish my current book, I’m going to dive back into the world of Potter. I’ll try to read one or two of the books every week, but, you know, I might get distracted by other things, so no promises.
The last thing I did today was finish logging all of my books in LibraryThing, because I am that big of a nerd. If you’re on there as well, stop by and say hello!
