Harry Potter fever!

I bought it, read it, and enjoyed it!

Back here in the motherland you can see long lines of kids and adults alike in places like Powerbooks buying the book. I hope JK can keep up the steam and keep the book an interesting read.

It was a "wizard wonderland" here last Saturday... little kids dressed up in their robes and hats and carrying broomsticks. It was so cute!

With all due respect to anyone, and mrs Rowling herself, I really do not and can not understand what it is that is so special about the Harry Potter books. Thank you.. got that off my chest.. stumbeld in through Blogger.com .. and being the impulsive person I am, I reacted to what I read. Hope that is okay :) Wishing you luck and love!

You know, I like that cover too. I found a copy of book 5 with that cover (they call it the British Adult version) for P200. I already got the Children's British cover from a friend. Wah. That's babble agai. I liked the book, and to Kristjans, I can't explain why I like HP, except that it keeps me entertained. To each his own, I suppose, and no offense taken here either. ^_^

Kat: I have the first four books in the British children's cover on paperback and the last two in the British adult cover on hardcover. No uniformity whatsoever! I am seriously thinking of buying the first four on adult hardcover to match it all up. I am very fond of the style. I just don't know what to do with the paperbacks though... give it away, perhaps?

kat said...

Send it to me. I'll pay the postage, bwahahaha!

Jennie said...

Kat: You want it? :p

kat said...

Sure, why not? ^_^

Dear Jennie,
I am yet to read Book 6. I had the itch to order for it months back; but, having the rest of the books only in paperback format, I don't want to have the sixth in harcover. Hahaha! So, I'll just have to wait for the release of the paperback.

Fortunately, no temptation to read whatsoever the now proliferating pirated e-version of the book. No way, I'd rather wait to have my copy to read comfortably in my nest than to spoil the fun and disrespect JK Rowling.

To kristjan hans,
Perhaps because, considering the population of the world's readership, literary tastes are very diverse. No book is without a devotee.
