Of course not! :shock: You can read it whenever. It just seemed like it would be cool if we all were rereading at the same time because then we could discuss things, but we don't all read at the same pace, so that won't work perfectly anyway. Please don't feel like you have to wait to reread. Heck, you can reread AGAIN in December if you'd like. I won't be rereading til Decemeber. No time.

I just got back from the mall where I found out that the Borders is going to have a midnight release party for The Tales Of Beedle The Bard. I just thought I would mention it in case anyone was wondering about it. You might want to ask your local book store. It comes out on my stepdaughter's birthday so we are going. :)

Welcome. Lol, that sounds awesome. I've still got to preorder it. My mom will probably get it for me for Christmas if I mention it.

Haha, that's so weird/awesome!

I can guarantee you Twilight won't be up there that long, and if it somehow magically does appear there, I'll still find it completely ludicrous.

It's because Harry Potter appeals to both adults AND children. You don't see 8 year olds running around with copies of Twilight. That's because Twilight's only gear towards TEENAGE GIRLS. Why else would we be surprised when we see a guy on the Twilight boards? Because the book wasn't written to appeal to guys or anyone above the age of twenty, really.

People who still say Twilight's better than HP has to seriously reconsider. (Don't get me wrong, I love Twilight) It might be more popular right now but in ten, twenty years, is it still going to be that way?


I highly doubt Twilight will be as popular in twenty years as it is now, granted I don't neccessarily think HP will be either, but HP has a probability of still being extremely lilked. In Harry Potter the plot lines twist amd keep the mind captivated enough that people will always be finding something new in them. It will take years for all of their secrets to be revealed. Twilight just isn't that deep. Its still an amzing story, just not as intricate.


I love the Twilight series, but Harry Potter is definitely better.

It bothers me when people say that Twilight is the next Harry Potter. While Twilight is a very good series, it will never be as successful as the Harry Potter books. First of all, HP appeals to a much wider audience. Twilight mostly to teenage girls. HP has seven books all great in length and the plot is just so . . . words can't describe it.

There's no doubt in my mind that Harry Potter won't be as popular twenty years from now. Pride and Prejudice is, and it's a hundred years later. Harry Potter is just a classic that when the younger fans grow up, they're going to introduce the series to their children and so on. And even Stephenie said that Twilight and Harry Potter are in different leagues.
