Thank you everyone who threw in their two cents last week about which reading project I should dive into first! There were quite a lot of votes for Harry, including one from my husband who cast his vote in person. I also had a conversation with my best friend Christy that made me realize I haven't reread any of them in over five years which all of a sudden seemed far too long!
I'm not sure I'm going to read all 7 straight through without any breaks, particularly once I get to the really chunky ones, but so far I am feeling like I definitely made the right decision. I'm only a third of the way into Sorcerer's Stone, but it is every bit as magical and fantastic as I remember. And I know Harry will be waiting for me even if I end up sneaking a few other books in between. There are still almost two weeks left before Bout of Books starts, so I'll see where I'm at and decide if I'm plunging forward or switching it up for the readathon -- heaven knows I have plenty of options!
P.S. I'm reading our old hardcover copies, not those shiny new paperbacks -- the hubby is a bit protective of the new set! But I will definitely be perusing the new copies as I read to check out the new artwork :)
