Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling

No, this isn't the first time I've read this, but when movies are getting ready to come out, I like to read the book again right before. This usually means I'm going to be either irritated or disappointed when I watch the movie, but not always. I actually just watched the first movie that goes with the book a week or so ago as well. And because of that, as I began re-reading this book I noticed how true to the conversations and storyline this movie really stayed. No, not perfect, but almost whole conversations were the same, almost word for word. Of course as long as this book is, it has kept me from reading much else this past week, but that's okay, it was totally worth it.




It was good to go back and see what actually were the details of how Harry defeated Voldemort. And I also could now remember what certain scenes in the previews were from. Like the dragon. I couldn't really remember the dragon in this last book till I read that part again. Loved the book again, just like the first time. Although the end, the people who die, that part is always hard to read. To lose out on such major characters just totally sucked, but made it real. And again I was reminded of how much I love the feeling of being so into a book that when I'm doing something else, a family party, working, all I can think about is getting back to read and get into that world. And again, I feel sorry for all the people I know who have never had that feeling. I'm sure there are things they have done or felt that I haven't, but I just love this feeling so much that I think everyone should experience it just once in their lives. And I try so hard at school to help students find a book that will make them feel that way. And I'm in a science classroom. If only someone would give me a chance to be a librarian so I could share this all the time, with all students in the school. That would be my dream job, that is something that I would be able to get up in the morning without hitting the snooze button and be happy to be doing.

Anyway, to go along with this post, I thought I'd share the latest, and best trailer for the final Harry Potter movie.
