Now that I have finished reading the 6th HP book I am very tempted to go back and read the others again. If it wasn't for the fact that I have many books that I want to read then I probably would. I'll wait a while though and then read all six over again. I was thinking about a list of books that I hope to pick up and the books I had in my to be read pile. I then realised that my TBR pile has drastically reduced in the last few months. My pile used to be about 20 books. Each pay day I would add to that pile. Now though I manage to get through my TBR pile in a month. I don't think I am reading more than what I had. I also didn't think that I had been buying less but obviously I have. One of my goals over the last few years or so was to reduce my TBR pile to a manageable amount. It feels strange now that I have. I have picked of "End of the Affair" again and was able to get back into it no problem. It reminds me a little of Paul Auster but maybe that is because the books I have read by him have always had a writer as a main character as this one does.
You're whetting my appetite to read Harry Potter books! I must confess, I have only read the first one, I do also own the 5th but wanted to read the 3 in between first, but never got around to buying them. But its tempting.....
