Ok! I am done with the second and third book and about 150 pages into the fourth novel. I’ve already noticed a large change in tone from the first three… this one seems quite a bit older, if that makes any sense. Anyway, I am enjoying these books immensely and a friend of mine has given me permission to borrow the rest of her books when I need them.
I was planning on bringing the Goblet of Fire with me on vacation (before I knew how thick it was), so I went to the local branch of my library to check it out. Of course, all the copies were gone.
At the front desk I asked to be added to the waiting list and made light conversation about wanting to read it on my upcoming trip. The lady told me to hang on while she checked the back. A minute later she appeared with the book and told me I couldn’t officially check it out but I was welcome to borrow it and return it when I was finished. Apparently they had an extra copy lying around as an unclaimed raffle prize. My library might be small, but the people are mighty nice.
