Well you'd have to read the first 5 books for it to really have its full effect. Happy reading. ;)

IIRC, there were only a little over 800 pages in the biggest one. ::)

Only 3. Besides, you'd still have to read the books for it to really have any meaning. :P

Some of the making out was kind of awkward.

Don't worry, the books are really quick reads. I finished the 900 page one in two days, and I am almost done with the new one (which disappoiningly, is smaller than the last!  >:() ).

My least favorite HP is the fifth one. IT STANK  :devil: . I didn't like how Harry was all depressed and "hormonal"...not all teens have grumpy mood swings ya know...
My namesake is the one you'll love to hate
Maybe it's because she's different--not the same
And such an identity satisfies my artistic brain...
I love King's Quest!
It's insane!

450 pages a day  :o

I'm not much of a reader but if i find a book really interresting the number of pages doesn´t really matter :D

maybe i should take a look at these books, who knows  ;)

I think you should! They're great! I'll start the new one as soon as I'm done with "Wicked" and Mom's done with Harry Potter. (She took it today to start it)

At the moment, there are 6, there's one more to come. And what's so surprising about 450 pages a day? I read the new one (652 pages) in a little under 7 hours. Maybe it's just me, but I prefered the hormonal Harry in the 5th book to the Harry in the 6th book. He's changed a lot and I don't really like it as much. Then again, I didn't like the 5th book when it came out either. Maybe it'll grow on me. I'm sure I'll like it more on my second read at least.

Well, you also have to remember everything Harry has and is going through. I mean, if you've got a man trying to kill you and is killing your friends and family in the process, I'd be a little paranoid and aggitated too. Remember, I haven't read the book yet, so no spoilers. I'm just working on the impression I got from the other books.

Sigh  :'(

I think I've liked this one the most, despite it being pretty centred around a certain thing. I think tbh that the way JK is portraying harry is right, he's gone from being a rather timid 1st year through to the angry angry boy in the 5th book and now...I just get the idea he's bored of all the crap now and is getting on with things the way he thinks he should. Yes he's still totally one minded about snape/malfoy/voldemort but if she changed that now it also wouldnt be very in character also.

Roll on 2007/8, i know its going to kick serious ass.
