Well, ok… this isn’t exactly “news” but whatever.

So, I’m not done with HP7 yet, however I’m on page 500 or so and J.K. Rowling has already made me cry three times. I’m not going to say at what parts for two reasons:

  1. I don’t want to spoil anything,
  2. It’s kind of embarrassing that Harry Potter books make me cry.

It's like breast-milk for him

Anyway, I’m just saying, bring some Kleenex.

Come to think of it, I tend to cry a lot when I read… I did it three times during Jane Eyre and maybe four times during His Dark Materials Trilogy.

Do I have a problem? I might need to be careful. I don’t think my Sony Reader would deal well with water.

Hey, Charlotte Bronte. I know you’re dead, but you still freaking rock, lady.

Jane Eyre: One Fine GILF

Amazing. Couldn’t put it down. It was like glued to my hands for the last week or so while I experienced all the drama that a Bronte could put on a page (or, in my case, the screen of my Sony Reader.)
