Rowling on the brain

I keep dreaming I'm at Hogwarts. Remember how I mentioned that I couldn't let go into the Harry Potter books? That as an adult, I could appreciate how thrilling the stories would have been if I had read them as a child, but couldn't access that same abandon with my adult brain? Well, I guess I cracked that barrier. I devoured Goblet of Fire, so now I have read 4 Harry Potters in a row.

Last night I was in the castle and walking around the halls marveling, "The people really do move and wave in the pictures! It's real. This place is real." I saw Snape at the end of the hall and ran the other way and passed by a classroom. Hagrid was teaching. I can't remember anything after that.

The other night I was being chased by a dragon.

So I guess I have "let go" somewhat into the story, lol. I can't wait to get down to the library to get the next one (which is also the movie coming out, oh boy) and then the next, and then just about the time the last book is released, I'll have read all the preceding books.

This makes me a geek, doesn't it?

Remember Bill Gates is a Geek so your in good company. I have never read a Harry Potter Book, they are so thick. LOL. I heard they are ending the series, that is so stupid. If J. K. Rowling has enough money she can donate to charity. I would be writing books until doomsday if I got millions for each one. As long as you don't believe that you are Harry Potter, I think your dreams are okay.

I am as addicted as you to the Harry Potter books. J.K. Rowling has created a most compelling world.

I assume the dragon did not catch you?

Goblet of Fire is my favorite

You are a geek. And a hot one at that, so don't fight it.

Lewis said...

I wouldn't say geek so much as a wild and crazy addicted freak to loving the likes of HP and his hotness!

Rebekah said...

yes.

No, you're NOT a geek. You're just someone whose imagination runs wild and free! Don't ever loose that gift.

At least you are not the one who pre-order the book and will be picking it up as soon as the department store open the morning it release :P

PS: For me the most difficult one to read was the 5th one. I won't spoiled it for you other than saying that some of the mood in the book became tiresome.

I cry at the end of every Harry Potter book, especially number 5. I just want to adopt him and let him do his magic. That's not geeky but kind of sick when you think about it. Harry Potter brings out different things in different people. I'm glad you were able to let go and be a part of the magic.

I listened to the first two on cd, but I just can't seem to get into them.

Now I feel like the only person alive who can't.

I don't know what it means but you're in damn good company! :)

I drank the Kool-Aid when the first one came out 10 years ago. I am looking forward to the next one, though I am a little sad the series is ending. However I think Rowling is doing the right thing. Enjoy!
