I know I am supposed to exercise. I even know that I feel really good about myself when I do. But for some reason, I would rather eat bugs than step on that machine. Enter Harry Potter.
Now, most of you know that I am a huge Harry Potter fan. I not only went to the midnight release party with Deathly Hallows came out, I finished the book in les than 24 hours. I have reread them a few times – though oddly enough I have not reread DH. Whenever i have picked up the series, I litterally can not put them down. I make dinner with one hand and a book in the other. Head straight into my own world every time.
I have been wanting to reread the whole series and see what keys and clues I pick up along the that points to the ultimate end of the story. Things that JK Rowling had planned from the start that I didn’t realize would be important (hello, Mrs. Figg!) but since I retreat from reality, I have put it off.
The rule in my house is that I can only read the books while on the elliptical machine. Holy cow and hallelujah can I just tell you it is working! I started earlier this week with a goal of doing 15 minutes. I did 20 instead. This morning I was going to stop at 20 BUT Hagrid had just arrived at the cabin and … well….
SO we will see if this can continue through the whole series. I am not sure how I will do when I switch from the paperbacks to the hard covers. Something tells me i will have a hard time holding those up, but then I do need to work on my upper body strength.
