I am also on my continued trek through the Harry Potter series. I am now on The Goblet of Fire and wow, this series was exactly what I needed right now - I love that I am not so anxious to zip right through to the end and that I am simply enjoying being in the world. Except for the Deathly Hallows, I have read all the books many, many times over. Previously, I was often irritated by the likes of World Quidditch Cups, S.P.E.W meetings, Hermione/Ron fights and Dobby (dear Universe, DOBBY - the Jar Jar Binks of the magical community). In past readings, I just wanted to get to the end to find out out what happened. This time through? I am just sitting back and relishing. I already know what happened. Now? I simply want to experience.
I love re-reading books - it is not really re-reading - it should be called "experiencing again", right? Are you a re-reader? I have a friend who adamantly does NOT read books more than once - time should be spend on new books. I understand her reasoning, but still cannot resist a siren call from the literary equivalent of a Sure Thing.
Do you read books many times through or are you a One Stop Shop kind of reader?
Anyway, the Goblet of Fire is about to announce its selections for the Triwizard tournament which means I need to get my ass back to my reading chair.
I will leave you with Birthday Extravaganza snappage AND special Birthday Edition footage in the meantime.....
I am Legion, for we are many.

Dinosaurs Unearthed exhibit at the Union Station and it was as if Team Chaos had stumbled upon some sort of Cretaceous Canaan. First stop, the movie. By the end, I thought I was going to vomit and desperately needed some painkillers. But the kids loved it and I did enjoy watching their attempts to catch the dinosaurs by waving their hands in front of their eyes. Still. Crap on a cracker, what a mother will suffer through for her babies. Can someone please pass a popcorn bucket and hold my hair back for me?
