So, I have a confession to make. I have not read the Harry Potter books. You can stop gasping now.
Well, I've read the first book and about 3/4 of the second book. I remember watching the second movie and towards the end realizing I hadn't read those parts. But as for Prisoner and Goblet, I have never ever cracked the spine (well, I'm almost a librarian so I rarely crack spines if I can avoid it anyways, but that's neither here nor there).
And so while everyone else is out scrambling for book five, I'll be at CostCo picking up the old paperback set of the first four. Rich has agreed to read them to me and vice versa on our longer car trips. And I'm pretty pleased about that.
I even forgot Hagrid's name this morning. For shame.
