Harry Potter Challenge - June 6


I've sucked Frenchie into watching the Harry Potter movies with me. I'm happy to say he's actually enjoying them.
This weekend we watched Movie 2 and Movie 3. I am starting to understand why those who have read the books were disappointed. There was a lot of background information that was passed over in Movie 3. I get that they can't put in everything, but I love that having read the books I understand the movies better. I had to explain a few things to Frenchie because he looked a little confused at some parts.
Now that he's started watching the movies with me, he wants to continue them. I won't watch the movies before reading the books so I guess I have one more reason to start reading them. (Not that I needed one)

Sadly I have yet to start reading the books again. the last 100 pages of Wise Man's Fear are killing me. I just can't seem to get them read!
