Addicted to Reading
August 24, 2005
Are you addicted to reading? I am. I told myself a few days ago "don't do it! Don't pick up Order of the Phoenix right now, you have too much to do!" Alas, I listened to my external id/enabler and picked it up. Now, if my id is in the house, then I’ll feel shamed by her presence into putting the book down and getting on with other uses of my time. But since I dropped her off at the airport last night, I ended up spending the rest of the evening reading instead.
Until a few weeks ago, I had only read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, though I had seen all three movies. My id borrowed the rest of the books from a friend. I picked up Goblet of Fire and of course loved it. Then last week I backtracked to Prisoner of Azkaban. Definitely worth reading it; there were some important points not mentioned in the movie (e.g. explanation of Messrs. Moony, Wormtail, Proudfoot and Prongs).
Maybe tonight I’ll convince myself to put down the book. Lot of work to catch up on, especially InterfaithNews.Net, which is several weeks overdue.
