I'm almost done with book one. I forgot how addicting these books are.

I'm making it a requirement to finish Love in the Time of Cholera before I start this one. Because I really wanna finish that excellent book that I love every time I pick up but haven't picked up in close to a month.

I've read all the books and seen the movies a few times, but I'm curious to see what you have to say.  Count me in.

Alright, the vote is in and the result is every two weeks. So to remind everyone, here is what the schedule looks like. It is retroactive, but I can push it back if people need more time just to get started, but I know a few of us are close or even finished with the first one already.

Sunday, July 25: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philospher's Stone
Sunday, August 8: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Sunday, August 22: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban
Sunday, September 5: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Sunday, September 19: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Sunday, October 3: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Sunday, October 17: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (obviously the movie doesn't come out until November 19)

And these are the deadlines, so that means get 'em done by then, or at least try. Also, once we get the the 4th book, we may re think our schedule as the books start to get a little bigger. But we shall cross that bridge once we get to it. Happy reading!

I'm so in. Unfortunately the first 6 books are at my parents' house, and I'm currently reading Deathly Hallows at work, so I'll be a little out of order/off schedule. I'm making a promise to myself to watch the movies in order and on time with you guys though. I'm excited for the discussions!

This is not the first time today someone has notified me of a typo. And it's getting on my nerves.

I bet you proofread this one before posting.  ;)
