    [​IMG] Have any of you read any of the Hary Potter books?
    Are they worth reading?

    [​IMG] I just finished Chamber of Secrets, that's Book 2. So far I have liked both, but I liked the first one, Sorcerer's Stone, better than the second. So far they are better than I thought they would be. Something different to read.

    Actually, Tal, there are 4 of them:

    1. Sorcerer's Stone
    2. Chamber of Secrets
    3. Prisoner of Azkaban
    4. Goblet of Fire

    And yes, Harry Potter rocks! :)

    Look for the MOVIE trailer at www.jurassicpunk.com.

    Yes, they are worth reading. Not epic, but good fun and good dramatic stuff. Even nice and dark in spots....! Enjoy! ;)

    By the way, Gormenghast - have you read the books, or did you just like the name? :)

    Ahhh! My witty comment has been blown quite extraordinarily out of the water! :D

    Nah, I thought that you meant that there were only 3 written thus far.

    Hmm. I haven't looked at Amazon in quite a while but as far as I know it was supposed to hit stores in November, at the same time as the movie.

    Ah well. The books seem to get longer and longer as the series goes on. This is definately a good thing, as there are only three more books to go before the series is over.

    Or so we think...

    I've read all four of them and they are all pretty good but the fourth one tops the others. Apart from me and gormanghast who actually lives in Australia?
