You see that tab up there on the top of the page that says "Good Reads". Yeah well it has been there for quite some time...as in like almost two years. If you click on that cute little tab, then you will see that it has yet to have anything put there. Yes, shame on me!
I have always been an avid reader. I love books and getting wrapped up into their stories. As a kid I could not wait to get my work done at school because when I finished I was allowed to read. When I went off to college reading was put on hold for a bit...well reading for enjoyment was. You would think with grad school the same would happen, but I have been finding myself always reading many books at one time these days.
After going to Harry Potter World last month, I decided that it was about time to reread the series. Funny story about that. I realized when I made this decision that I had NEVER read the first two books of the series. I remember trying to read book 1 and not liking it so I gave up (this was when I was like 10. Not cool 10 year old Mosby). Then, around the time I wanted to read them, my mom had given away the first two books to someone to read and I had seen the first two movies, so I just started with the third book.
Books 3-7 I have read at least twice. Now I figured it was time to get book 1 and start reading. So I know this linkup is about reading what you already have (and we did at some point in time) but I cheated a little and bought the first two books. Forgive me please?
I never realized how much information I was missing from not reading the first book. Or the differences in the book and movie. I loved reading and remembering how the movie did and liking the original writing better. I loved getting more character details, castle details, and event details. So worth it to read.
Tomorrow I will be getting Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and I cannot wait to dig into it! Since I loved learning so much this time I know I will be loving the second book. Anyone have anything fun to tell me that I may learn in this book?
