My Romance with Harry Potter

I have a confession to make. I'm a BIG Harry Potter fan. A friend of mine introduced me to this series when Book 2 was just released. Since then, I've been hooked and I always buy the latest book on its first release date. This time is no different. I've been carrying this book I bought from National Book Store all day and I couldn't wait to get home to read it. I'm giddy with excitement as I tear open the recognizable red plastic and behold the latest AND the last installment in the Harry Potter series. Tantararaannn....

Hmmm...somehow, there's something different this time. I've been home hours ago but I still couldn't get myself to read the first few pages. Perhaps it's because it's the last installment and I want to savor every word. Or perhaps I've been forewarned that another character will die and I know when I reach that point in the book that I'll probably get depressed. Ok....I think I better shut up now and start reading. Have a happy weekend everyone!

Naku buti ka pa, glad you got yourself a copy, exciting siguro ano? So is it really the last book?

I'm a big Harry Potter fan pero in movies :) I never read any of the books coz don't have the time. Siguro in the near future isa isahin kung babasahin with my kids :)

I'm a BIG Harry Potter fan too! I started reading it when I was 15 because mommy gave me book 1-4 as Christmas present!

I've reserved mine too and it's with my pal now because I'm out of the city so he collected it for me.

I'm gonna be depressed too; thinking that one character's going to die ... Haaay.

momoftwo> Yes, this is really the last installment in the Harry Potter series. But I have a feeling that it's not the last book that J.K. Rowling is going to write. Hay buhay...I started reading already and I'm savoring every word. Hahaha...fanatic talaga.

kyels> Wow, hope you're enjoying yourself wherever you are. Have a happy weekend!

Hehe, so you're one of those early birds who caught the book on the first day. Oo nga, fanatic ka talaga!

Glad to see you back, Ladybug. :-)

snglguy> Yes, and I'm enjoying it so far. Teka, pansin ko parati na lang akong may long hiatus kaya madalas welcome back ang bati mo sa akin....hahaha. Just kidding. Glad to be back. :-)

I've never the read the book, even a single word or the series. Nakakabaliw at nakakaexcite ba? Makahiram nga ng isa, tignan ko kung anong meron... Hmm... =D

jv> I really love this series. But that depends upon your taste. Why don't you try reading Book 1 first and see if you like it? Enjoy!

I watched the latest movie na nung world premiere. Sumasabay kasi sila dito. For me, it's one of the best sa HP movies.

ipanema> I was also able to watch the latest HP movie. I enjoyed it immensely. Naawa lang ako sa asawa ko kasi di niya mashadong maintindihan. That's when I realized it may be difficult for those who weren't able to read the book to understand the movie. Lalo na siguro kung isasapelikula itong Book 7. Pero ako super excited na!!! :-D
