Just one month from today, I will have in my possession "Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince." Holy hanna. I'm counting the minutes. I think I'm going to read 1-5 again, too.
Never have I actually read a book more than once. In fact, I judge my taste for the material based on whether I WANT to read it again. Every book in the Harry Potter series *will* be. There are others that have come close, but my memory for the fine details is freakishly good. Reading a book more than once gets kind of boring, no matter how fabulous it was. Harry Potter, on the other hand, deserves to be reviewed several times. Besides, it'll give me some good momentum going into book #6. I heard from a lot of people that they thought #5 was a bit slow in the beginning. I disagreed - mainly because I had just finished #4, so I was on a pretty good roll with the storyline.
Holy crap. I can't wait. Now I'm 5 minutes closer to having it in my hot little hands.
Shaking with anticipation,
