Harry Potter Reading Challenge


I couldn’t resist! And yes, I know I’ve been very derelict in keeping my other reading challenge posts updated. But come on! It’s a Harry Potter reading challenge!

I just couldn’t say no. So I’m signing on for this one.

I’ve read all the Harry Potter books (I can remember waiting by the mailbox, eagerly awaiting the delivery of the newest, just-released book – whichever it was depended on the year in memory – and ripping the package open, having already made the entire family promise to leave me alone for the entire day so I could read from beginning to end in absolute bliss.)

I’ve also re-read several of them once or twice now, and I’ve been wanting to sit down and do a re-read from beginning to end.

So, for this challenge, I’m thinking about listening to each of them in audio. Jim Dale, who narrates the books, is a wonderful narrator, and I think this will be a great way to complete this challenge.

The challenge in full is this: Read or listen to all seven books in the Harry Potter series, anytime beginning August 1, 2009 to July 31, 2010.

What are you waiting for? Sign up at GalleySmith’s and come join me in the fun!

    What great timing. We just took the kids to see the last movie and now I’m thinking of getting the books. To be honest I haven’t read any of them and I thought I could get away without reading them. But now the kids are asking questions that the movies don’t seem to answer. Now I just need to find a good deal (it’s expensive to buy them all at once).

    I’m off to sign-up now :-)

    I’m so excited to have you on board for this challenge. I’ve mentioned it a couple of places but I’ve not read any of these books yet. I’m thrilled to be able to do so with a diverse group (some who are re-reading, some like me reading for the first time, some listening). I hope it will be great fun!
