Summer Reading!

A successful novel should interrupt the reader’s life, make him or her miss appointments, skip meals, forget to walk the dog. - Stephen King

Ok, Ok, I finally caved in and decided to read the Harry Potter books.
I am buying them in paperback at wal-mart, I have 1-4 already and I just finished #1, which was a very entertaining and fun little read! So, I think once I am done with all 7, I may watch the movies. I prefer reading the books to the movies, although, I think all the Stephen King movies have been excellently adapted to TV. Stand by Me, Green Mile, The Shining, Cujo, IT, Oh, and we cannot forget Christine!! I hope Harry Potter lives up to my imagination!
I have never been a serious reader, I like to read for fun, I like the books to be light and funny.
I have always preferred reading a series, so Potter was a good choice. My favortie series of books I read when I was young were written by Scott Corbett, they were the "trick book"  series. Very fun and entertaining. He had 12 in the series and I am in the process of collecting them all, I have 5 so far!
I am glad I started to read again, it is so relaxing to curl up with a good story!
The first Scott Corbett book in the Trick series!
