cookiedough: (HP - Plot To Get The House)
I was actually going to post about my utter shock at the fact that someone bought some Harry Potter dvds yesterday and asked me which one was the second, third, fourth etc and I think I just stared at them, because like.. I don't think I know ANYONE that doesn't know that Chamber of Secrets = 2, same as grass is green. And then I was reading and found the site for Melissa's book...

"During the brief span of just one decade, hundreds of millions of perfectly ordinary people made history: they became the only ones who would remember what it was like when the Harry Potter saga was still unfinished. What it was like to seek out friends, families, online forums, fan fiction, and podcasts to get a fix between novels. When the potential death of a character was a hotter bet than the World Series. When the unfolding story of a boy wizard changed the way books are read for all time."

Okay, guys, THAT should have not made me CRY. I don't think many people, including myself, realise how much these books mean to me. It is SO weird to me that children now will have the whole lot at once and that they won't ever have that anticipation that I went through constantly for around 8 years. And it's weird, they're like the most popular books in the world but I still really excited when I meet someone who knows them as well as I do, like who knows all the facts and details, like it's some sort of reallt exclusive, not-well-known about thing. It's bizarre.

This book is going to rock:
