    Re: Pottermania: Day 1

    I was at the WalMarts here on Saturday and they had plenty of the books in a display. That's because everyone was next door at Farm & Fleet!

    My daughter reads them; but my 11 yr old doesn't care for them.

    I wanted to go over and pick up a book on the display and turn to the back just to see if the kid bit the dust.

    That's the only reason I read this thread.

    Read the whole thing in two days, have read just the last few chapters at least 5 times. Rowling does the series justice with the final book. I am glad Pottermania is officially over (I have never been a fan of the movies.)

    Anyone here into the Arago Dragon Trilogy? The third book is also supposed to come out this summer.

    My son and middle daughter have finished the book. I'm up next.

    It took my son a couple days to get through it but that was because of his work schedule. My daughter started it mid-afternoon and was done by 4 AM.

    And josh, that's not fair. I didn't have time to look away. Don't do that.
