Okay, so I was talking to Camille yesterday, telling her that The Body and Two Little Girls in Blue tied in our vote, but I didn't think I could get either one of them. I mentioned that what I REALLY want to do right now is re-read The Deathly Hallows before the movie comes out. Camille liked that idea for book club. I put it to the morning crew that hangs out in the library, and they were positively excited. So, but Official Decree, I deem our next book to be HP and the Deathly Hallows. :)

Here's what I need to know from each and every one of you:

1. Are you in for this book? You can skip if you like and rejoin us for the next choice; we're casual that way!

2. If you are in, do you need me to provide a copy of the book? I need to get a count.

The meeting Thursday will be dedicated to making sure everyone has a copy and setting up a page goal, so it should be relatively quick. See you guys then!

I think the Deathly Hallows would be a great choice. I'd love to read Harry Potter. I haven't read the books (But I've seen the movies), would I be missing something important?

Charlotte said...

1. I love this idea and I have been meaning to re-read the book as well!
2. Yes, I have my own copy.

Kaari said...

Hmm... I put a post about this on the last conversation we were having. I guess I didn't see this one. Oops! Well, I do want to read this and I have my own copy. Can't wait!

Mrs. P said...

dWhile the movies leave quite a bit out, I believe you'll be able to pick up the story in Deathly Hallows quite easily regardless, Mackenzie! And, hopefully, reading the last one will inspire you to go back and read the whole series; the books are SOOOOO much better than the movies. And I love the movies!

Tina said...

I would love to read it! Perfect timing, too. I own a copy, so you don't have to worry about me Mrs. P.

Maya said...

Yeah, I think it's a really good idea too, but i don't have my own copy of the book.

Mrs. P said...

No worries, Maya! Stop by ASAP and I'll check out a copy to you. :)

Nathan said...

You guys should do a book exchange!
The guy who thought of that was a REAL genuis! ;)

I have a copy and i love the idea so you do not need to worry about me but this is reallt exiting. I AM POSTING. thank you thank you very much. BY the way nathan the guy who thought of the book exchane was not only a genuis but modest to. :)

Kimberly Hardouin said...

I was hoping that Harry Potter would come along! :)

Sadly, though, I'm not on that book quite yet and I'd hate to skip ahead in the series, because I do feel that I'd feel I was missing something. I've only read the first 3 and I'm in the middle of #4. So I won't be joining you - hopefully next time though!

Patrick said...

I reasd it awhile ago i need a book to read right now so why not.
i have my own copy but my will probaley read before the movie so i need a copy

Camille said...

*sigh* Bailee, Nathan. You smart people spelled "genuis" wrong.I admire your geniusness. :D But anyway, Yes, I would love to read Harry Potter 7 again but I don't have a copy. Should I stop and check one out from the library or wait until the next meeting or what?

Kukulkan said...

So I am halfway through the first book and have found out the following:

a. harry is a wizard
b. he has done something really great and is really famous
c. muggles are not wizards.
d. Hagrid is a big dude.
e. Nathan is proud to be a raptor!! I love it!!!
f. Bailee knows how to blog!! So proud of you.
g. that being a Rattler book club member rocks my socks off!!

Kaari said...

Don't forget that Dudley has a pig tail! That's probably my favorite part of that book. Do we have a reading goal yet? Or first of all, does everyone have a copy? I know I gave one to Ben...

Mrs. P said...

As of today, everyone has a copy and we're ready to go!

Nathan, the plan is to do a book exchange. Some genius recommended it.

Nathan said...

I Wish Raptor Reads wasn't terrible, nobody posts stuff, and there are not disscusions or anything of interest, more just like a librarian vacuum on reverse into a moshpit of apathetic teenagers!
