Ok, I'm going to say it right up front--I haven't been able to read any of the Potter books except this one. Nothing agains J.K. Rowling, it was just the circumstances under which I read this one. I hope to some day be able to get past that and read the others, but for now, I'm just not pushing it.
I did enjoy the idea, and wished I could go off to Hogwarts myself. I have enjoyed the movies I've seen, even tho I haven't seen all of them.
