We have a confession. Two of us here at H&H (lizmaverick and myself, redline_) missed the Harry Potter boat. Big time. As in, we’ve never even made it through the first book.
When we were told that this is our last chance to experience a piece of the excitement in real-time along with the rest of the universe before it's too late (after all, the second half of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows heads to the big screen on July 15, 2011), we knew we had to give ol’ Harry another shot.
With that in mind, Liz and I have decided to read all 7 books in the series before the release of the last movie, posting along the way. Our prefect, streanor (Treanor, trainer—see what we've got going with the wordplay? We are so Rowling.), has already promised to help whip us into proper Harry fangirls.
So if you missed the boat too (and surely we’re not alone out there—right?!) and have always wondered what all the fuss was about, or even if you’ve read HP countless times and just want to relive the story, we invite you to join us on our little adventure by reading and discussing with us.
Well, what are you waiting for? Go grab a copy of the first book. The first official meeting of the Harry Potter Virgin Club is just around the corner.
