So I cannot believe that I'm taking time out of my kids nap to post about this book - but I am. I am so excited to be reading the last book of Harry Potter. I am so sad that it will be over. Half of me wants to skim read as fast as I can so I can know what happens. The other half of me wants to read as slow as possible and drag the book on and on so it never ends.
I tend to get attached to characters in book. Just like many avid readers the characters become real to me. I start to think of them as real people and I actually spend time thinking and worrying for them and their scenarios they must face. Of course I know Harry Potter, Ron and Hermonie aren't real, but for an hour and half each afternoon and each night after 8pm they become real to me as I read.
I am about 200 pages into the book. I am not going to spoil anything and I hope that no one else does the same. All I will say is that as I get to the ending pages of a chapter and tell myself I will fall asleep after I finish it, JK Rowlings finds a way to not let that happen. I have a very hard time putting this book down. But I'm a mother and a wife, so at times I must, and then the battle rages on inside me - finish it fast, or take my time.
I think for now I will take my time and savor each page of my friendship with HP.
