I've continued with the series since then, plowing through about a (700 page) book a week, reading during naptimes and before bed at night. I can't help it, they are highly addicting. The writing manages to be simple enough to be read easily and quickly, but the plot lines still are incredibly complex and always interesting. Of course, you all know this already, as I appear to be the last being on earth to read these books. But once I started I almost literally could not put them down. The reason there was no Etsy Fridays post this week is because I devoted Friday to finishing Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (crying like a baby through most of the end, btw). I went out that afternoon and got the 7th book, which I have yet to start. Part of me can't wait, and part of me is almost scared to because of where the story is going. But I know it will be just as incredible as the previous 6 books. I am in awe of J.K. Rowling. Seriously. As I devour each book of this series, I am keenly aware of how excited I am to one day share these books with Donovan.

While in Austin last month I picked up one of the family copies if Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and finally got around to reading it. I'd of course heard tons about the book series, and even seen a couple of the movies, but never got around to reading the books. Luckily, since I was at home and thus had multiple very eager family members to watch D for me, I was able to read the book very quickly. As in, it took me about 2 days. I then read through books 2 and 3 in the week that followed, before heading back here to California.
