OK. I admit it. Until recently, I had not read any of the Harry Potter books. In fact, I had only seen the first movie (on TV, after falling asleep in the middle of the movie on my first couple of attempts to watch it). I still haven't seen any of the other movies, but now I can report I have read all seven of the books.
You see, shortly after I began working as a Children's Assistant here at Parker Williams, my associates in children's services expressed shock that I had not read the Harry Potter books. After admitting this serious deficit in my training, I embarked on a mission to read the novels. Did I mention there are seven of them? And they are big?
It was fun. The books are well written, the characters are intriguing and the plot is fast-paced enough it was hard to put the books down. I would recommend them to anyone young or old who enjoys fantasy or science fiction. Now where's my gold star?
