Books I *have* managed to read

In which FP finishes something for once

This week’s Book I Haven’t Managed To Read was going to be about a Neal Stephenson novel, The System Of The World. However, that’s been postponed, just because I wanted to brag about finishing another Book I Haven’t Managed To Read.

The book was one many, many people have read with no trouble at all. Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire. However, the first time I read it, in a hurry, I’d just tried to read two other Harry Potter books very quickly too. I got as far as Chapter Three of Goblet Of Fire, stopped, and didn’t pick any J K Rowling books up for a few years.

Anyway, last week, Colleague M said: “what? You’ve only read three Harry Potter books?” So, I picked up Goblet of Fire again, and read it. I didn’t get stuck. I didn’t forget where I was. I read it and I finished it. Hurrah!

    I feel a bit shamed (but only a bit), having only read the first one, and only because I was trapped in an airport. I’ve also not seen the movies.

    I do however own all of the Lemony Snicket books.

    Just in time for the movie to come out !

    Jaq, I wouldn’t feel shamed at all if I were you. To be honest, I thought Goblet Of Fire had a few plot twists too many, and the identity of the evil villain at the end was annoying too.
