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.

I just read the first book and, contrary to what I thought, I like it a lot. Then I saw the movie. And that's all I know about Harry Potter, I've just read the first book and seen the first movie.

I found it original and I guess that's why I liked it.

Hi,
I'm a new comer in this discusion
Well, I've read this part after wating for a long time :)
Yeah, it's so wonderful!!! I can't find out any word to show my thought. :D
But I am also sad when Mr. Dumbledore died, and Hogwarts school has been closing. :( :( :(
What can I say about J.K.Rowling, the author? She imagines so well, we were keen on reading Harry Potter , forgetting the time :D
Now, I'm wating for the last one. I believe Lord Voldermort has to die because in the fight between good and evil, good be always the winner!!

Interesting books.. Though they are children's books, I finished all those 6 books something about 10 days.. I think it was too much for 10 days.. I got Potter's poisoning.
