About the whole Harry Potter debate: Ro
, you two are hawt when you debate. XDDD
But on the topic of the book, I'd to just say now that when I was young, alot of the stuff that got me into reading had even less quality than Harry Potter.
It's just that children's literature isn't known for being amazing and thought stimulating. But they're fun reads and kids get entertainment out of them. Let them enjoy the entertainment aspect when they're young, and then get into the stuff they can actually take something from later in life (and laterrealize how crappy their childhood books were =P)

I've only read the first 4 books first hand, I lost interest afterwards, but damn, woman, learn other ways to say "ajar" and crap. She uses the same words and her style is very dry. I think too much of the book is filler as well. There is just so much useless detail that has no effect on anything whatsoever.
Yes, someone who feels the same way I do. Everyone else I bring this point up too are all "well people like Rowling because her style is basic so everyone can read it." but I don't think that's a viable excuse for crappy writing. The fact is she's mediocre and has hardly any variety. And, like you said, most of the books are filler. Book 5 is one big filler. =/

@ baKah-neKoh- D'you skip all the way to the ending
of course I did or did you actually read the whole thing in two days flat?? I find it unlikely, but just out of curiosity.
Some people can finish a book of that size in mere hours you know. If you read non stop with little breaks you can do it. Some fans are really that devoted.
I learnt how to make spring rolls today. <: We also made deep fried wontons. <3 We then went out to the lake, and we all would've stayed out, but my brother wanted to sleep in his bed, and dad wouldn't let him stay home alone so I went home with him.
