I spent the whole weekend on a Harry Potter marathon with a couple of friends. I had managed to watch #1 with my kids, so we were down to the last 5. 2 movies a night for Friday and Saturday night. 1am bedtimes both nights. I am still recovering. I wasn't able to make it for Sunday so I finished #6 yesterday. There's a little bit of a sadness for me as I see the end of the movies in sight. The books came out in 1997. I was introduced to the first on in 1998. That's a long time to have something that fantastic in my life.
While I'm excited for the next movie (we are going to see it at Midnight on Thursday!) I don't know if I'm ready for the conclusion to happen as well. We have started reading the books to our kids and they have really enjoyed them. My 2 year old even recognized Harry while I was trying to watch the movie without them knowing during the day yesterday.
I just really have a soft spot for such a well written book. Guess that means it'll be time to start looking for a new series. This one though, will be one that I will read over and over again. (Especially now that I have all 7 of them in a nice box set.)
To the Boy who lived!
