Melody
I know I have mentioned this before that I am not going to participate in more reading challenges, but I found this challenge from Jo and Devourer of Books and I know I have to join based on the following reasons (as if I need them, haha):

i) I have only read till Book 3;
ii) I watched Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince with my husband last evening and the movie has really motivated me into reading these series again!

What: Read or listen to all seven books in the Harry Potter series.

When: The challenge will run from August 1, 2009 to July 31, 2010.

Where & How: Post reviews on your blog, chat about it on message boards, post vlogs or podcasts, comment on and converse about it in the monthly post at Galleysmith.

And that is not all! Michelle, the hostess of this challenge is giving away two Harry Potter box sets (one paperback and one hardcover) to two lucky winners. All you have to do is to sign up for this challenge by August 15th.

    It great that you're participating in HP challenge. It sound like fun! I only managed to half of the book 3 and need to finish that book *grin*...we shall see if I decided to join or not :)

    I haven't read a single Harry Potter book till date, although I do own the first 2 and I've seen all the movies except the latest one. This is so tempting. I'm going to give it some thought.


  3. Trish Says:

    On read through book 3? You didn't even get to the good ones yet! Have a great time with the challenge--they're such fun books.


  4. Sandy Nawrot Says:

    I've read all the Harry Potter books three times over, with the exception of the 7th, which I've read only once. I am a huge fan. They are so much fun to read, that you don't even notice the two billion pages you are plowing through!


  5. Lauren Says:

    Oh man, I read the books as they came out. I really think you'll enjoy them! The first two books are good kids books...whereas the later books are good adult fictional books. You'll see what I mean. Hope you enjoy them!


  6. My husband and step-daughter are reading the books. We just saw the movie last night. Perhaps this challenge will finally get me to sit down and read them!


  7. Jo Says:

    Glad you joined the reading challenge! Good luck with it!


  8. Dar Says:

    I'd love to join and reread the books but I'm doing poorly enough with the challenges I already joined. lol. Good luck and enjoy Melody. I love the HP books!

    Oh man, I should really join this one, too. I've only read the first two. Bad me. Oooh, but I definitely do need to tell the hubby about this one. He loves these books, and has just started reading the series over.


  16. I read your all books and i feel good when you join the reading challenges.

  22. Julia Says:

    Okay Melody - You already know that instead of me joining, you and I will be doing joint-reading together, as soon as we both are done with book 3 and than we can move to book 4 together and go from there. How that?

    It would really encouraged me to read the books if someone read it along with me :)


  23. Melody Says:

    Julia - I'll let you know once I'm done with Bk 3. :)
