    I wonder how big the next book is going to be? 7 year olds reading 1000 page manuscripts...

    Wonder if it will ever be regarded as one of the greats like Catcher in the Rye, I am David(which i totaly hated) and lord of the flies..

    Ive got a feeling that this book isnt going to be as long. Cant wait to find out though! Ill be one of those sad people queing outside Ottakars at midnight on launch day!!
    I really dont know if it will be a 'classic' all of the others you mentioned are just one offs and not a series ( please correct me if im wrong) I also think at the moment there is too much opposition to the whole storyline ie witchcraft, some of the children dying ( in book 7) . However in 10 or 20 years time i think it will be regarded as the book that got a whole generation of children, and adults, reading for pleasure. I really do think that the 'phenomenon' which is Harry Potter will NEVER be forgotten. And personally i think they are so special, magical and VERY clever they should, and will go down in history

    I am a harry potter fan too but still think it's not the best written books in the world it just has an overall pull I love.
    I recently read the Phillip Pullman northern lights trilogy and they were fab

    We all love Harry Potter too, for the last launch we were all there at midnight drinking 'witches brew' in Ottakers, dressed as witches or wizards, we dragged the kids along too

    DD is very lucky, she had a full set of signed, dedicated books sent along with a handwritten personal letter from JKR. We had a nasty car crash while driving to a signing that we'd been fortunate enough to get golden tickets for, obviously we didn't make it to the signing but the police officer who attended the accident wrote to the publisher to tell them about our accident. Lo and behold, all these books turned up Also had tickets sent for Albert Hall book reading that she did, I had to work but DD, DS & DH went, they even had a private box!!

    Hi

    I'm also a big Harry Potter fan - cannot wait for the next book. Will be there for the next midnight release!!!!

    Like Bellybee I don't think they are amazingly well written (I've got a English degree and I am such a book snob!) but I love them all nevertheless!

    Hi Curvy Chicken

    I reckon that there are books to educate, books to entertain us and some that do both. I like a bit of variety, sometimes it's a great distraction to read something light hearted, I often pinch my daughters books; really enjoyed Lemony Snickett series and the Charlie Bone series

    I loved the books, but the films seem to be losing their touch now.
    The latest film was a bit disappointing in my opinion.
