Our own little Harry Potter lookalike
Mike and I both were able to do a bit of reading on the airplane, swapping back and forth. One of my coworkers from Seattle who came to Honolulu to help out with interviews finished the book on Saturday, so she lent us her copy. It wasn’t until Monday night, though, that we both finished it. I must be a slow reader, because we were in exactly the same place when the kids went to sleep, and Mike finished a good hour and a half before me. I stayed up until 1:00 a.m. to finish it.
Chris with friend Garen
Chris is finally reading the book now. It seems that as the series has progressed, it attracts more adults than kids. He has already commented, 150 pages in, that it’s too sad because so many people die. I think the dark tones of the stories have led him to slightly lose interest. The very first few books were much more geared to children.
If you have never read Harry Potter, I encourage you to dive in. But please start with the first book. You’ll miss so much if you jump in halfway.
Holding the book at last, at 12:15 a.m.!
