So, for the past few months, I've been re-reading the Harry Potter books to get ready for the new movie and final book. I was speeding along pretty fast with The Sorcerer's Stone (book 1), The Chamber of Secrets (book 2) and The Prisoner of Azkaban (book 3). About 3 weeks ago I started on The Goblet of Fire. It feels like I've been reading it for 2 years. I've read it before and I knew most of the story, but since the movie leaves things out and I wanted to remember them for the next book, I needed to read it all the way through. This book is not as good as the others. It is so. long.
Yesterday I finished reading the part where he gets back to the tournament after meeting with Voldemort. I totally thought I was going to finish it yesterday. Then I kept reading. And kept reading. Curious, I looked at the page numbers on the page I was on and the last page and realized I still had 50 pages to go. 50!! and I was already past the climax of the story. The resolution takes more than 50 pages! arrgh!
I know I've read it before and should have remembered it was so long, but I didn't. I hope tonight I have time in between my two jobs to finish it off. I'd really like to finish reading the last 2 before July 21st when Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows (the last book!!) comes out. I'm a slow reader. I never could get all my BookIt! star stickers.
