With all the buzz over Pottermore.com and me noticing that this is my 300th post, I've decided to chat a little about my old obsession.
You see, I went a bit overboard with the Harry Potter craze, before it was the normal thing to do.
I went to the Midnight book releases, I saw all the movies (even though I saw Order of Phoenix on my birthday and I hated it, thusly, ruining my birthday haha)...I even made one of my first events as a Resident Assistant in undergrad Harry Potter related (15 college kids doing 90 on the West Side High so we can make it in time to see HP1 in theaters...yeah..overboard). Oh hey JK Rowling and Universal Studios, you wanna build a Wizarding World of Harry Potter? Yeah, I'm on the first flight, see youthere. And the list goes on and on...and on.
But once the books were done, I was emotionally and mentally ready to put my obsession to rest.
While I am a staunch believer that HP Books > HP Movies, any new Harry Potter news is good news book related or non. So while I'm disappointed a little in the Pottermore thing being an interactive site similar to the ones that have already been created by fans around the world - I am extremely excited that there will be ebooks and new material from JK Rowling herself. I'm most excited for the audio books . I hear that listening to HP is a different experience entirely. And since my brother is going to college 6 1/2 hours away, I will have a lot of time to listen to the books.
What do you think of Pottermore? Or list some of the craziest things you've ever done Harry Potter related! I might throw him a party this year.
