    I've not read any of the books, but did take my niece to see the first film, which I quite enjoyed.

    I haven't read any of them but my friend has. He says that they are great. And I guess 200 million sold copies translated into 55 different languages doesn't lie. We even had a heist the other day where a thousand or so copies of the new one were stolen from a delivery lorry. Those books are hot property.

    I actually really liked the Harry Pothead books, and I look like Harry Potter and when people say I look like Harry Potter I say 'Poof, you're a pile of $$$$!'

    This poll doesn't apply to me cuz i like the harry pothead books but I didn't rush out to get it.

    I'm so never getting laid.

    > and I look like Harry Potter

    Our prime minister, mr. Balkenende, also looks a lot like Harry Potter, at least they have the same hair dress. There are a lot of fun pictures with mr. Balkenende as Harry Potter. Here's one of them.

    The books are pretty good, and the movies are made fairly well, but geared a bit toward young kids...or at least those who are young in the mind

    I've read the first three, I have the fourth but I quit on like the tenth chapter and never picked it up since. The onely reason I have it was because my mom saw it on the shelves a coulple weeks after it was released.

    As for the movies they were prety good, but I've seen better.
