So, I finally gave in. Once I started reading, I could not put these books down. They seem like very long books, but you can read through them with ease. I love books that I do not want to put down, and every single book in the series did just that. I read each in only a day or two setting, so if you have not read these yet plan to put a side time to actually read these. You will not want to stop.
I read these as they came out, and I plan to start re-reading them now that I can read them all at once. This is a great book series, and one that will be read for years. I highly recommend it if you have never read them. Don't knock it until you try it. I almost did not, and I am so glad I did!
I re-read the series to compare the books to the movies. I think I like the books better than the movies, especially this one. She did an excellent job of tying up the loose ends. The movie had a lot of questionable subjects: like when Harry is using the Resurrection Stone, why weren't Tonks and Fred present, since Lupin was (answer: they weren't germain to telling the tale.)
The only problem I have with the series is that the first book needs to have a stronger binding. Each time a new book came out, I went back and re-read all the books. So I've read Sorcerer's Stone over 10 times now, and the binding has split. The other books are still intact. I tend to treat my books very gently, so it isn't a matter of abuse, it's a matter of overuse. But they are very enjoyable.
By all means, buy the series for your Kindle and have a wonderful world waiting for you whenever you need it.
