Harry Potter 6

I have finished Harry Potter 6, and am frankly sad it ended. Is this wrong ? Possibly. But if there's one thing i'm world-famous for, it's brutal self-honesty. Can i say brutalic ? Anyhow. H.P.6 is pretty much just fine. It's the.. the what. The brie and ritz-crackers of reading material. I have to admit i'm getting a bit tired of the foibles of Harry and Ron; Hermione is much easier to hang around, readerwise.

So am now rolling thru Tom Sawyer.

I had to pretty much drop Infinite Jest because it's just too physically unweildy to bring along on my daily bike/bart commute.

I look forward to starting Perdido Street Station by China Mieville, which Kai, whom i know loves to see her name in bold, got for me and which Mykle is currently reading with every appearance of enjoying it, so that's very good.

Michelle is reading Catcher in the Rye and in talking about it last night i nearly teared up thinking about how beautiful that book is. I'm that pathetic, yes.


  • Gosh I sure do love seeing the covers of the books...and realizing that you sure do read old editions of stuff....which means that you must frequent used bookstores! Hooray for you!
    Gosh I sure do love seeing my name in bold.
    I was afraid for a second that you would reveal the H.P.6 "big secret" and I would unwittingly read it. Glad you didn't!
