Have You Read Harry Potter Yet?

If not, you might like to know exactly how much time you will need to devote to plow through all the books. Of course, if you saw the movies it might be faster.

Well the good people over at Blinkbox Books (very worthwhile place to check out) have cleverly created an infographic to help you figure this out. HERE. Be aware there is some timed reading so don’t do this when you are really, really tired or you probably will get an incorrect result. Check it out and see what you think.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

by J.K. Rowling


The day has finally come for Harry to leave Privet Drive and the horrible family called the Dursleys for the last time. Voldemort is out to get him and the Ministry of Magic does not want Muggles to be harmed so Harry must be moved. His future is already laid out for him; kill Voldemort. The only problem is that if he kills Voldemort he will have to die too, right? And the other problem is, is that he has to find the remaining Horcruxes. They could be anywhere in the world. And to make mater worse for him, Voldemort is looking for the Deathly Hallows. And to add to all of this, Harry owns part of the Deathly Hallows. So Voldemort need to kill Harry to get part of the Hallows. So the mission that Harry is on is that he has to find all of the Horcruxes, destroy them and try to avoid being killed in the process. How hard can that be?

In this book, J.K. Rowling answers all the unanswered questions, she ties all of the loose ends and gets the Dursleys out of he picture (big relief). And there is one secret that is reviled in this book. A secret that will surprise you.


Nail-biting. That is what this book is. You just cannot stop reading it. I got this book while I was in England stuck from the volcano and it only took me 5 days to read it. 5 days to read 607 pages.

In this book a lot of unanswered questions are answered. You learn things in this book that you think are not possible. You learn things about Snape and Dumbledore. When you learn secrets about the two of them you will not believe it. I had to read sections all over again to make sure what was just said was true.

But there is no question if this book is good or not. This book is spectacular. And Malfoy. So much for being evil. Ha. Wait till you find out about him. (And, no I did not just give anything away. I just gave you a taster.) You just wait until you get the book to find out all of these little thing. You just wait.

But hurry.

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling

I know that every one reviews Harry Potter and everyone know about the book but there is more to the book then just the story line. It is not just about witches and wizards and magic. There is more to just what it seems.

When I first read the book some time back, I enjoyed it throughly. But 3 days ago I decided to read it again. Just to refresh my memory. I have just finished the book today and boy did I enjoy it better than the first time. I did not have to concentrate as much because I am above the reading level and I knew what to expect. I have noticed that when I read a book multiple times, I seem to notice things that I have not noticed before. In Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, I noticed that there was an extremely strong friendship between Harry, Ron, and Hermione. If they had not been friends Harry would not have been able to defeat the Dark Lord. I also noticed that Snape is actually not that bad in the beginning books. Even though everyone knows what happens in the last few books (if you don’t you will just have to read it to find out.) But in the beginning Snape is mean and has a very rude tone but it is true that he does try to save Harry’s life on a few occasions. I do think that when you hear that people read the first Harry Potter book 5 times you think ‘Oh wow. They must like reading.’ Well there is a difference between reading a book and reading a book (and no I did not make a mistake.) You can read a book just to read it or you can read a book to read and enjoy the experience. I know a good book when I find one. I know because I will do anything to read the book. I will feel like I am actually part of what is going on. I am not saying that this is how a good book should be but some people just read the book for the sake of reading it. Harry Potter is not a book that you just sit down and read. You have to concentrate because there are a lot of things going on and if you do not concentrate, you are going to miss something crucial. If you have not read the books you are missing out on somethings extremely special.

Books are like old friends and when you finish the book you do not want to let the friend go.
