I'm going to be completely honest with ya'll. I am a Harry Potter novice, co-existing among some fanatics. Hubby loves the movies, he's seen them all more than I can remember. If any are being played on tv, I'll be sure to know about it. My brother is a book fiend. He flew through each of the books after waiting outside the bookstores at midnight on the night of their release.
Me? I've seen the movies a few times myself. I still can't keep the names straight, but I can't keep any names straight to save myself. I've yet to read the books, but I have little time for reading anymore. I'm lucky if I can read throuh the directions of GM's new toys before getting pulled in 15 different directions.
When GM gets old enough, I'm sure he'll want to read all the books. By than they may even be considered classics. Even at four, the kid is such a book worm.
