30 Days of Books - Day 30

So I should probably be going to bed instead of blogging, because I'm moving out tomorrow and still have a crapload of cleaning to do, but pfffffff... I spent all of today cleaning, and I'm pretty sure I now have the most spotless cupboards and oven in all of Canberra! Everything hurts now. I sat down at dinner with my parents and nearly fell asleep at the table... But you know, having to buy a ton of cleaning products hasn't been all bad - I just entered a giveaway on the paper towel packet to win $20,000, so fingers crossed!! ;)

Anyway, it's been a long time coming, but I've finally made it to Day 30. Yay!! Okay, it's taken me like a millionty days to get through it, but whatever.

Day 30 - Your favourite book of all time

You know what, this is a no brainer. 

Harry Potter. And yes, I'm counting them as one book. It's my blog and I can do what I want, dammit!! ;) Every time I read the books, I get something new out of them. For example, when I reread them in the lead up to the release of Deathly Hallow Part 2, I came across a bit in which Ron throws a crocodile heart at Malfoy during a Potions class. I have absolutely no memory of EVER reading that before, and I've been reading Harry Potter for 15 years now! It's a rare book indeed that you can read time and time again and still find something new in it every time. If I'm ever stranded on a desert island, Harry Potter is what I want to keep me entertained! 

Appropriately, I'm currently using paper cups and plates that say "Happy Halloween" on them as I've packed all my crockery and glassware. I think J.K. Rowling would approve! Now if only I could learn how to do Accio so that I never again sit down only to find that I've left my water bottle on the other side of the room, all would be right with the world...

  1. and I should probably be also going to sleep instead of leaving comments, but oh well ...

    I can't remember that Ron did that ... indeed it is very funny that everytime you read it you get something new. I wish I could re-read them but all my books are back home. Oh and I wanted to do the accio thing the other day with my phone, but nothing happened. I guess without a wand there's no much hope.

    Good luck with the moving thing, hope you don't forget anything (or at least nothing valuable).

  2. A Tale of Two Cities is my ultimate fave!!!

    I still can't get through Harry Potter, I don't know what my problem is. I'm lame, obviously.

  3. YAY HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I've read HP so many times that when I was learning Spanish I read the Chamber of Secrets because everytime I got stuck on a word I could remember what it said in English.

    I just looooove HP.

  5. I remember when Harry Potter came out, I read the books. I got to book 3 and lost interest. I read book 4, but I didn't quite enjoy it. I think I'm in the minority here, but I just can't seem to get it up for Harry Potter books.

  6. i like Harry Potter too! I also want to say that I'm giving you a blog award. You can check it here:


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
