The horror! The outrage! What am I talking about? Candace from Candace’s Book Blog, a long time reader and book lover, has never NEVER read Harry Potter!!!! Isn’t that the saddest thing you have ever heard?! When I asked Candace about it she had this to say:
It’s really a combination of reasons, first of all it was so hyped that I think that I lost any interest in reading them for that reason alone. If I hadn’t read Twilight before it was something HUGE then I probably never would have read them either.
Another reason is those books are freaking HUGE! I mean seriously! I have 60+ books waiting for me to read NOW and I could get through at least 3 of them in the time it would take me to read ONE HP.
HP is for little kids. Okay, so let me explain that one. Many years back when my brother Seth was only 10 or so I got him an HP book cause my mom said he liked them. It was the small version, for the younger kids, I assume. That stuck in my head though and I guess it may have influenced my decision.
And then last, but not least, those books are HUGE (oh, did I say that already?) well, that is really the main reason.
So tell me, why should I take my precious reading time and put it into reading HP? Is it really worth putting off those other books? -Candace
