you know what annoys me most? the whole year waiting for the book. You wait so much and then once you get hold of it you read it in few days and it's all over. I know it's a big event but to me it's a bit of a waste of time because we all wanna know how the book's gonna finish, don't we? I won't sleep peacefully untill I lay my hands on the 7th book...;p

Re-read the books :lol: . I've seen in some websites that people re-read them for like three or four times. They analyze them and stuff for discussions. Really interesting.
Hey, one question for you? Which character do you like the MOST?

:cry: Man, I've finished the sixth book, and it was one of the saddest series. It was Sirius in fifth and now him in sixth. Goooossshhhhh. Although I knew Dumbledore would die at the end, but I couldn't help myself from crying :cry: :cry: :cry: . I can't believe it. I just can't.

yeah, it's unbelievable and for some stupid reason i always thought that snape was on the right side coz dumbledore was so sure about it...and yeah, definetly, this book is darker...deaths, dark spells, traitors (as in real life)...i usually don't like the books that are so famous but j.k rowling is original and has a good writing style :)

So the ending of the 7th would be good since it's already 2 out of 3, right? 8)

I usually read books in English if they were from English writers and books in my language if they were not from English writers. Before, I liked my language's translation of those books better because I thought the translation was better than English's translation. Anyway, last time I tried to read Harry Potter in my native language to check on how they did the translation. And gosh, it was so bad. I was so disappointed. Now I have to rethink about other books that I've read in my language. I've been borrowing them in English to compare. So far, the non-English books in English's translation are pretty much better than the ones in my language.

I've never enjoyed reading Harry Potter, can't explain the main reason, because I really don't know. I guess it must be cool though...

When I read it in Estonian, I thought, that it would be nice to read it in english too, but... Estonian books I readed almost 2 weeks, then for english I need at least 100x more time. I think I'm too lazy for this.
