Books are my best friends

Hi there!

A little over a week ago I finished reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire for the third time. The first three Harry Potter books I have lost track of how many times I've read... The Order of the Phoenix I am re-reading now, this will be my second time, The Half-Blood Prince I've read twice (because Snape...) and the Deathly Hallows only once...

Reading an old favorite is like visiting a dear old friend. Sometimes you don't remember everything about them but they are a comforting presence. Today I went to the nurse at my local health care center to check my memory. Last night I tried to decide what to read. I came to the conclusion, that now that I was worrying about my memory and my health, a good and friendly old favorite book will help me relax. Of course, it might make my mind wander, because of the familiarness of the story, but that's not likely when it comes to Harry Potter, it's written so well...

I kinda hope JK Rowling would win the Nobel Price <3

Updates and challenges

Hi again!

My reverse readathon didn't go as expected. I pretty much just forgot about it. It's awful, I know ... I'm an airhead. I hope that next time I'll remember .

Last weekend I spent on the beach with my auntie and my Mom . M4y auntie rented a cabin near the beach for the weekend. Three days without electricity. And other conveniences.  Just me and my books . And the beach and food and drink and my Mom and auntie. I read over 200 pages, I finished Harry Potter and the goblet of fire . Started reading a book by Danish author Jussi Adler Olsen . "Selfies". It's gripping and a real page turner .

Now I am starting to re-read Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix.
