#8 Read Harry Potter books 1-3

With Harry Potter book #7 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows due out later this summer (July 21st), I decided that it was important to reread the first 6 books in preparation for this momentous occasion. This task was three collapsed into one since the first three books are relatively short and I am a fast reader. Books 4, 5 and 6 will all be their own task. Incidentally, I have ended up watching the movies as I finish each book. Now I've watched 1 and 2 while reading 2 and 3 and I need to watch 3 while I am reading 4. That will set me up to watch the new movie Goblet of Fire (#5) due out next week while I am reading book 6. After I finish reading book 6, I also purchased 2 of the "what's going to happen in Harry Potter 7" books. I figure that this is one of the only times in history that there is so much hype and expectation so I will enjoy the anticipation until I actually have Harry Potter 7 in my hands. Now the question will be, when will I actually get a chance to read Harry Potter 7? I read #6 in 12 hours, from 9am-9pm in one day. (It was really good!) For Mother's Day this year, I asked Jim to give me one free day/weekend to disappear and read Harry Potter. It won't be immediately after the release but, hopefully, it won't be too long after. Now, where to go... ;-)
