I finished Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince this weekend. Of course, I absolutely loved it. Here’s what is amusing – it’s almost as though it’s my first time through these last few books. I remember the major plot points, of course, but I’ve only read these one time and with great speed. It’s the equivalent of someone telling me what happened, then me going back to read it for myself.
I also started the final installment of the Harry Potter series – Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows – last night. I am so emotionally attached to these books and characters that I almost started crying the minute I opened the book. The beginning of the end. I’m sure I’ll cry like a baby again when I finish it.
