So by most people’s standards I’m pretty nerdy. That’s something I haven’t touched on much but I plan on getting more into as this blog continues. So I should start with my first great nerdy love. Harry Potter.
I love books, I love reading them, I love attempting to write them, I love coming up with ideas for them, I just love books. This is about seven times truer for Harry Potter. I thought the movies were okay, but the books are amazing.
So this past weekend I was cleaning my room ( part of the reason I took a few days off from posting) and I began to organize my book collection. It came to my attention that there are no fewer than 4 copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in my room and at least one more floating around my house. There are various reasons for this, the main one being that both Colleen and I bought The Harry Potter Box set for ourselves which we now have in addition to our battered original copies.
This is necessary.
Cyrus has a taste for the glue they put in book bindings and unfortunately, knows exactly how to get ahold of it so some of our books aren’t in as good of condition as I would like. However the only reason for the state of our first copy of Sorcerer’s Stone is use.
This doesn’t look so bad…
…oh never mind. It’s in two pieces.
I honestly don’t know how many times I read Sorcerer’s Stone I know that it is at least 20, hence it’s present condition. I’ve read it at least once a year since 1998 and sometimes more than that. Because these books are awesome.
I hope you leave here, and go read.
