This weekend there will be lots of kids staying up all night — but not to make trouble. They’ll be tearing through the new Harry Potter novel.
What was the last book you read that you couldn’t put down? Or the first book you read that you couldn’t put down?
If you’re like me, you may even dread getting to the end of some books — because that means the experience is over — so you ration the last few chapters. Or you find a new author you love and immediately go out and read everything that person ever wrote — the ultimate literary binge.
I remember my fourth-grade teacher reading us “Tuck Everlasting” over the course of several days. I couldn’t wait to get to school and hear the latest adventure of this immortal family. I recently reread that book, which was made into a movie a few years ago.
Tell me your faves at firstname.lastname@example.org. What should I buy this weekend, while I’m waiting for Potter?
