I refused to read Harry Potter books for quite some time, not because the content conflicts with my religious beliefs, or because it was childish, but because I was afraid it would influence me in the writing of my own book for the same target age group.
So I've finished my book and started listening to Harry Potter audiobooks on the iPod. Can I just say, I'm totally hooked. I can't wait for the last book to come out. I'll be sad when they are all finished. I'm just like the rest of them.
